This month our Pat's Ladies Highlight is Liria, a 44-year-old mother of five who came to Pat's Place four years ago. The father of her children had threatened to kill her and the children by burning down their home with all inside when he was drunk. Thankfully, she escaped, but no house of refuge wanted to take her because she had so many children. When they finally came to Pat's Place, her and the children, ages five to eighteen, were still so full of fear. The children urinated in their beds and had difficult behavioral and learning problems. Over the last four years, their lives have improved tremendously. They now know Jesus in their lives, the children are getting good grades in school, and they have found a true refuge, family and love that they had never known before.

January 2018 Trip Update
Our most recent mission trip took place January 17-24. A team of four built a home in the community of Paradise, as seen above, which was donated by Howard Capital Management. They took all the families of Pat's Place to the Lima Zoo. They also traveled to Nazca for a look at the famous Nazca Lines.
