The Chesneys were invited to have dinner with a visiting pastor from Vietnam. During their visit, the pastor shared a dream he had which was to create small homes for orphans and at-risk children where they would be taught about Christ and experience the love of a real family. Sharing the same heart to help orphans in Vietnam, the Chesneys quickly acted and Homes of Love began.
This home is at the very site where a team stood and prayed asking the Lord to establish Christian homes for orphans. (The mother for this home was an orphan herself.)
Local Christian leaders were so impressed with what they saw from Homes of Love that they asked to partner with HOL and establish more homes for children throughout Vietnam. This partnership allowed us to grow and make a much larger impact.
This home was created within the new partnership. (The mother for this home was also an orphan.)
The mother for this home was an orphan and created a family for five little boys.
This home was established for little girls.
This home is established for boys. Both the mother and father were orphans themselves.
In June, our children enjoyed their first Homes of Love camp, complete with a beach party theme.

This home was established for little boys. Like so many of our parents, this mother was an orphan.
