Within the country of Honduras, thousands of children become orphaned or abandoned
each year, some as a result of the death of their parents, some as a result of extreme
poverty. Many children are surrendered to orphanages by parents or guardians who
are simply unable to feed them; others end up on the streets, living an existence
that spirals downward into daily acts of desperation in an attempt to survive.
Because the Honduran government has extremely restrictive adoption policies, international
adoptions are nearly impossible—a child’s only hope rests on the compassionate hearts
of others who may choose to provide for them.
All God’s Children is dedicated to remembering these young ones, imagining a better
future for them, and working to share hope that lasts for each precious child.
A woman named Carmen
All God’s Children began in 1988 when a group of youth leaders traveled to Honduras
with the intention of finding a service opportunity for their church’s youth group.
In an unplanned but providential encounter, they met young Carmen Beteta, a pre-novitiate
nun who had recently left the convent in order to care for several orphaned children.
She was living in a run-down house, not knowing where the next day’s meals would
come from, simply trusting God to help her and to provide for these precious children.
After spending time with her and the children, the youth group leaders passionately
committed themselves to partnering with Carmen. In these early years, through donations
and volunteers, an orphanage facility was built, a home called “Hogar de Niños,
Nazareth.” This began the Honduras orphanage charity we support today.

Developing the Network
Since 1988, six other ministries to orphaned or abandoned youngsters in Honduras
have become a part of the All God’s Children network. These ministries share the
same mission: to provide an environment of love and practical care where the eternal
trajectory of an orphan’s life is changed, where despair can be replaced with hope.
Each of these seven ministries is briefly introduced under the ministries tab, to
give you a glimpse into the amazing work that’s being done in the name of Christ.
Please partner with us to continue spreading the hope and love of Jesus to these
disadvantaged but precious children.
