On any given day Susan and I will receive six to eight requests for funds. Some from good causes, some from not so good causes. To very few of these will we respond. With One Hope Ministries we have no such reservations. We have seen the work that they do, and we have spent enough time in Guatemala to know the need for what they are doing. The education of young women is a key component of future prosperity and hope for countries like Guatemala. Larry & Susan Scott

I have been blessed to be a part of this wonderful mission to educate the young girls of Guatemala, to give them a hope and a future, and a path out of poverty. John & Judy's dedication to the girls training, education, health and welfare, their families and their futures amazes me. The hardships, challenges, sacrifices, and even danger they have faced makes them my heroes. They are far from their family and since the start have missed the births of their grandchildren.

The fact that some of our young women who came through the residential program are now teachers is a sign of great success and a source of pride and connection for me and those dedicated to One Hope.

We may never know the actual extent of those impacted through this mission, but I am convinced that lives have not only been changed, but many saved as well.

Being a part of providing an education for girls in Guatemala that would never otherwise get that opportunity is rewarding. I find it fascinating that many of these girls arrive at the home that John and Judy have provided not knowing how to take a shower, flush a toilet, eat at a table or brush their teeth. As their lives are transformed, all those who are a part of their lives are affected, which benefits the community in which they live.

Education for girls who would not otherwise have any hope out of the cycle of poverty. In the United States, we take education for granted. Research has shown that when a girl from an impoverished family is provided an education, her family and her community are also positively impacted. One Hope's vision is to expand and build a school to provide an education and hope for even more girls and their families. I support One Hope financially, have helped with the annual banquet and recently become a board member. How can one not get excited when you are involved with a ministry that is life changing?

John and Judy Prim responded to God's call to minister to the young girls in Guatemala to help them get an education and learn about Jesus and God's love so that future generations can be counted for His glory. John and Judy had homeschooled their own children and were well prepared to mentor other children's education. It was difficult for them to leave their own grown children in the states and work at One Hope Ministries, but they selflessly sacrificed that desire for their stronger desire to serve the Lord. Judy has great teaching and organizational skills and John is an excellent carpenter and handy-man. Together they make a great team. They love their work with the girls and strongly desire to impact more lives for Jesus.
