I was a medical volunteer at the Finca from 2005-2008. I came as an older, retired adult. I was a little concerned how well I would fit in, since I was not only older, but a Protestant. I found the Finca staff to be very warm and accepting and I soon felt part of the group. It honestly was a wonderful experience, certainly not without challenges, but one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
My 3 years as a volunteer missionary at Farm of the Child changed my life. Not only did I make life-long friends with my fellow missionaries, but also met three of the greatest blessings in my life--my three oldest, adopted children. Farm of the Child changes lives--the children and families served, the missionaries and volunteers who serve, and all those who share in this mission through prayers and financial support.
