Join the Student Mission   Latreia International - Extending Hope
to the Ends of the Earth.

Join Our Upcoming 2015 Mission Trip Team
BCHFS has begun a partnership with Arise Africa International and their Bukaleba Babies Home in Uganda. We will be hosting bi-annual mission trips - providing love, teaching/mentoring, construction and care for some of the 50+ orphans (age birth to 6) living there. We also hope to establish a relationship that will allow BCHFS to become a 'placing agency' for families wanting to adopt from Uganda.

Programs that give back and benefit others.

BCHFS Programs: Helping Others, Helping Yourself and Helping Him.

Part of the our process is giving back to the communities we serve. We have various programs that benefit not only BCHFS, but provide valuable tools for ALL individuals and families that help us thrive in the demanding world we live in today.

By building a strong relationship with Christ, we are all able to better serve those around us and do better in our daily lives. Together, we can move mountains, while changing lives for the better.

Come to me all you that labor and are burdened, and I will refresh you. Take up my yoke upon you, and learn of me, because I am meek, and humble of heart: And you shall find rest to your souls. For my yoke is sweet and my burden light.

- Matthew 11:28-30
