Every year, we welcome a number of groups to partner alongside Esperanza.  What joy to hear from those who came as a youth, returning to give the next generation an opportunity to experience life in our remote region while serving others in a meaningful way.  

We love the relationships that develop through these partnerships.  With your help we are able to serve our coast in ways we never could imagine otherwise. Past group participation have included: building, renovations, exterior/interior painting, various services, maintenance, crafts, VBS in local communities, camp counselling, medical services, classes, housekeeping... the list goes on!

If you are interested in bringing a group to Esperanza, please contact us.


This video comes from New Life Church who put up our beautiful greenhouse.  It is a good picture of what it can take to access and get things done around here.  

It never ceases to amaze how much firewood can be chopped, sorted and stacked by 60 youth in just a few days!   Most houses in Esperanza are heated with wood heat, so every winter when we are reminded of the loving hands and hearts that contribute so tangibly to our lives.

The Greenhouse - contributed by New Life Church of Abbotsford after our old one blew down in a storm.  Fresh fruits and vegetables were carefully rationed prior to this gift!  Now we have fresh produce year-round, not only in Esperanza but also in two neighbouring villages!
