As a teenager, I was employed by an orphanage in Houston, Texas. It was there that I saw life through the eyes of an orphan. It was there that I saw the pain of rejection, and the agony of not having a family.
As you can imagine, it was heart-wrenching to watch these children, week after week, as no one came to visit, and no one seemed to care. This experience placed a vision deep in my heart that has been watered by the Holy Spirit through my years of ministry.
When I first came to San Antonio in the late 1960’s, I tried to make that vision a reality by starting an orphanage but was prevented from doing so by circumstances that were beyond my control. I was disappointed and discouraged. I had a dream to help these children that were unwanted and unable to help themselves, but it just didn’t happen. Now, here we are nearly 60 years later and there are still hundreds of thousands of children that are discarded, abandoned and unwanted. The desperation that I had experience with all those years ago, still remains today – and SO DOES THE VISION!
Organizations like Planned Parenthood are literally destroying the future generations of the world. When a mother walks into one of these clinics for an abortion, they are handing their unborn child a death sentence. What if we could offer a viable alternative that gives young mothers, and their precious unborn children, the option of LIFE, and the possibility of a productive future?
We don’t believe that abortion should ever be the answer, but it is not enough to simply believe – we must continue to take a moral and Biblical stand against this practice and provide an alternative for these young mothers who at times feel they have no other option. With your help, we will give them, and their unborn children, a future and a hope…a Sanctuary of Hope.
Thank you for investing in the lives of these children and the future of the world.
May God bless you.
Pastor John Hagee
Every day in America, 4000 babies are disposed of in tax-funded abortion clinics. Young mothers believe that they have no alternatives, no other hope for help. Those babies add up to 50 million what-might-have-beens. Has the cure for cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses been lost along with these precious children?
At Sanctuary of Hope, young women who are expecting are provided an alternative to abortion. Mothers-to-be receive on-site medical care, parental training, Christian formation and counseling, adoption support, job placement assistance, and more. Every newborn baby finds a forever family or is raised at Sanctuary of Hope and developed into a strong leader for the future.
On Saturday, March 10, 2018, the Joe and Van Mabee Home was dedicated, and we opened our doors, offering a life-giving alternative to young, unwed women. Phase II construction of six cottages—transitional housing for mothers and their newborn babies, as well as other unwanted children—began on February 4, 2019, and is expected to be completed in the
Spring of 2020.
But this is only the beginning of the real work. Donor support is necessary to provide ongoing operations—medical care, education, nursery supplies, food, living expenses, staff salaries, and transportation. Lives and destinies continue to hang in the balance and your generosity will set a positive course for these young mothers and their unborn children, giving them the opportunity to discover God's greatest plan for their lives!
Will you partner with us to continue providing a life-giving alternative to these children?
Consider joining Hagee Ministries to help the Sanctuary of Hope thrive and be a place where deserving children can reach their divine potential and become righteous leaders for the future of America and the world.
A tree will be planted, with your personalized plaque, on the Sanctuary of Hope campus. This living legacy will serve as a reminder to everyone that visits of those that have faithfully prayed, and sacrificially given, so that others might experience God's hope and future. (Our Partner Relations Team will contact you to get plaque details.)
