The vision for the Living Waters Children’s Ranch is to create a safe and caring place for disadvantaged children. The ranch is located on 17 acres of beautiful farmland on the outskirts of a rain forest. Once completed, there will be 10 “family homes”, a chapel, and a working farm.
Each “family house” will have two loving parents and will have the capacity for up to eight children.The ranch will also function as a working farm in order to supplement the operating expenses. Each family will serve in various cottage industries to teach a good work ethic and allow the children to learn some practical skills. The children will attend the local schools, but will also have the opportunity to have music and art lessons, computer labs, and such.
The ranch will also serve as a beacon of hope to the surrounding community. The farming community of Horquetas has many of the same problems and issues that are present in Alajuelita, where 6:8 Ministries has been serving for 10 years. This will be a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate the love of Christ to our neighbors as we raise these kids to be Godly young adults.
