What an enlightening visit! I had no idea that young girls were often encouraged or made to leave school to help at home once they have the most elementary learning.it is something the girls on our team, all college bound,never imagined so it was great for them to see first-hand what their Guatemalan contemporaries will do to have what they consider an entitlement. This ministry is the harbinger of change, one young life at a time!
i have been blessed to be part of mission teams to Antigua for the past 7 years and have helped in several ministries. One Hope has always been one of our favorites. John & Judy are truly dedicated to these young girls giving them opportunities for a future that they would not have otherwise. It differs from other organizations in that they do not seek merely to educate the girls, they also provide spiritual nourishment and basic life skills. They maintain family relations, too. They have endured many dangers and hardships, yet they rely totally on God to bless the ministry and get them through. There is always such joy in their home.
I would highly recommend One Hope as an outstanding nonprofit and encourage anyone to support them.
One Hope Ministries reaches at-risk girls in Guatemala. It is wonderful to be part of this ministries and see how Judy and John give girls a home, education, health care and most of all hope. They teach these girls how to break the pattern of poverty and help them to see that God loves them and cares for them.
John and July Prim left their home, their friends and their adult children and 2 grandchildren to go to Guatemala and start a girls home that is so desperately needed in that country, what they have accomplished is amazing, girls are educated they learn how to take care of themselves they find jobs and they learn how to take care of finances. This is a real plus for the women that come out of this ministry because so many of them live in poverty. Our prayer would be that they can just continue to keep helping more women and that the ministry might be able to grow.
The girls in One Hope Ministries experience God’s love first hand. John and Judy are great examples of this by sacrificing and giving their all to change the lives of these girls. They are receiving academic, spiritual and practical education that provides a better path. It has been a blessing to see them blossom and be more outgoing with confidence. It is pure joy to have them be a part of the church.
We have watched the girls that participate in this ministry grow into Godly responsible members of society. They don't just receive, but they serve too. John and Judy have taught them that.

The time, love, sacrifice and dedication poured in to the ministry of One Hope is clearly making a difference! I have been acquainted with One Hope since it's beginning and am now honored to be more directly involved as a board member. Throughout this time I have seen first hand the girls lives radically changed. Coming from situations of despair and hopelessness, they now have experiences and opportunities that will push them to fulfill their greatest potential.
We are fellow missionaries here in Guatemala and have been involved with this ministry.We have seen first hand the benefit in the lives of the girls in their care.The opportunities given these girls is an immense step up in this country.We highly praise this ministry for their service.

Seeing firsthand how the girls that participate in One Hope Ministries have changed for the better is overwhelming. I have seen the girls go from introverted, shy and insecure to vibrant, confident young woman. This, I believe, has been a direct result of the unrelenting love and support of the ministry. These girls have surpassed any typical expectation of their community and will be able to become a positive, productive member of society. This is absolutely the best ministry to be a part of to see lasting, positive change.
