The message I want to convey more than anything else is this, there is no church, ministry or organization out there that is preparing to do what we are with a global outreach that will make inroads into the enemies territory and that is to bring the gospel, and safe places to educate, teach and restore broken people that will have an impact on them, their communities and even their governments when we show the love of Jesus with no hidden agendas or selfish motives but pure unadulterated religion that is pure and selfless. The reasons are it is big, costly, most Christians know we are in the end times but don’t have the ability to think outside the box - or believe a project of this magnitude can be undertaken as fast track as we are preparing to do – it takes world changers to get the job done who believe in the impossible, people with vision who are willing to be stretched and step out of the boat with walk on water faith; to make this initiative a high priority and focus and know that with these projects we can usher in a new move of God in these last days that will literally snatch souls from the enemies grasp!
America and the rest of the world is in need of Jesus and Christians who will stand up with courage, with boldness and a resolve to fill the great commission now more than ever in history! I am one, Billy is one, and our team is standing - we have moved out of our comfort zones we have set aside everything, and we have sacrificed much to do as our Lord said and go into the world and spread his teachings to look after the orphan and widow and not to be corrupted or polluted by the world. Will you stand with us? Will you step out of the boat? Will you actively participate to see these Hope Ranches and Hope Centers come to fruition quickly – every heartbeat someone is dying without knowing Jesus, children are suffering…
These projects will have a great impact in each nation and ultimately on the world. This is the most worthwhile project we can do. At the end of our lives we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made or how many great things we have done – we will be judged by I was hungry and you gave me to eat. I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless and you took me in. We can work for ourselves and ultimately we can’t take it with us – the only thing we can take with us is people - we can work for God’s kingdom and not just change lives, saves lives, see the smile on a child’s face that has a full belly and a warm and safe place to sleep but to receive the look of love and approval as we stand before the Father and hear the words “good and faithful servant, come partake of the heavenly rewards I have for you” - a priceless eternal reward!
How do we do this - first and foremost is the command from our heavenly Father in the great commission to go out into the world and reach the lost for Jesus. Second we are commanded to look after the widow and the orphans.
New International Version Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.
King James Bible
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
How do we reach people – we reach them by meeting their needs, by giving them a hand up not a hand out! We tell them about Jesus, we disciple them, give them a safe place to live or come to while they work on their issues, learn new skills and develop their relationship with Jesus. Each program works together.
Hope Youth Ranch – a 2+ year residential program for youth age 0 to 18 years, an intense program in a family atmosphere to meet every area of the child’s needs, and make sure they are equipped to go back into their homes and communities saved, healed and living victorious and transformed lives and for those who have no homes to return to they can stay in the home they were assigned when they came to Hope Youth ranch.
New Hope Ranch – a temporary residential program for homeless families, singles, seniors and vets (not those that are addicted, they will be helped through Hope Center Community Outreach.
Hope Center Community Outreach – a daily program that will reach into the lives of the lost, wounded abused and poor and bring them Hope, disciple them, train them, teach them new skills. We will refer clients that need the residential program to New Hope Ranch.
Hope Center Youth Outreach – a daily program that will reach into the lives of youth and bring them HOPE, disciple them, give them new skills, work with parents, guardians, social workers, the courts, probation and corrections. Clients that need the residential program will be referred to Hope Youth Ranch.
Hopetown – Is the final program – all graduates of the above programs have the opportunity to go to Hopetown. A safe community where people can start their own business, work for someone else, complete their education, own their own home, a self sustained community with church, shops, parks, community centers, school everything they need. They can stay as long as they want, some may stay others may feel confident that they can go back into the world and be successful.
Without this last step in the process clients may not be strong enough in their new found victories to go back to their communities with the poverty and dysfunction they left behind and succeed - they need the experience of working out their new found skills and what is functional and not go back into dysfunction, this last step will cement their new found life successes and the success rate of the programs will be very high.
Esperanza Springs Retreat and Conference Center – From one day breakaways to week-long, full service retreats handling every need: Personal and healing retreats, pastors and wives retreats, missionary retreats, family retreats, youth retreats, leadership retreats to meet the needs from a marriage in distress to a tired, weary missionary, tired and hurt pastors and wives to youth leadership training. This facility is an absolute awesome place that would also lend itself to corporate retreats, weddings, military gatherings, reunions, social group gatherings with the financial proceeds coming for this venture to be put back into the retreat side of the facility.
Esperanza Productions – Will produce faith films that will encourage and uplift people, films about true life stories of what the Lord has done in people’s lives, stories that will uplift and encourage people, films that will help people who are facing giants and mountains in their lives. Our documentaries of all the BOHMI projects. Esperanza Productions will also be used as a fund raiser and a vehicle for evangelism to get the gospel to the masses. We have plans to develop an internship for Hope Youth Ranch graduates, which will help youth to discover their God given natural talents in this area of broadcast and film. In this internship they will learn what it means to communicate to the masses.

‘You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free’…. The good news of the gospel, the love and joy of Jesus must reach every ear in the city of Kamloops, BC, this nation and the world.
In 2007 (after spending over 30 years as a foster parent with over 60 kids going through her home) Monica felt led to expand the ministry from filling and shipping containers and raising finances for the Philippine ministry also helping the local homeless with clothes and blankets to move in a new area and develop something that was much needed. With a crisis in North America and the world with our nation's divorce rate, soaring single parent families, economic times, child/youth runaways, and child/youth suicides, there is strong evidence that as a nation, our children are desperately in need of moral and spiritual values; so Hope Ranches was born to reach into lives of children/ youth at-risk and fractured families. Children and youth from all races and cultures face increasing obstacles on the road to adulthood in the 21st century.
Monica has worked three years on a two year residential program on a working ranch to reach kids in crisis and fractured families. Also at the heart of the city to build an outreach center complete with a church where the simplicity of the gospel can be taught, where people are led from tradition to truth. Day programs where they can be equipped and empowered to move forward into transformed victorious living. Bill has been working on the financial strategies, cost studies, coming from a passion to see souls won to the Lord and envisioning a faith museum of all time. Together they have envisioned a family vacation park to include.
We are now registered in the US, Kenya, Uganda, India and Pakistan with a waiting list.
It is time for the vision to become a reality. It is time to take back ground from the enemy; it is time to bring HOPE to children in crisis and fractured families. “Get ready….I will cause my Spirit to flood through the streets, says the Lord….The flood will go up and down every city, take larger steps, walk the way I walk, and you shall see the enemy flee – shout the end of the situation, and whatever you have desired in Santa Fe is yours, NOW! Get ready for abundance. It is going to come from everywhere, finances are going to come, building supplies, people, every need is going to be met -shout it….I release my power upon this city right now and revival shall engulf this place. You are going to have buildings and land that will fit every need, every conservable thing you will need is going to come. People driving by and flying over are going to know that my anointing in on this, they will feel drawn to give and of the skills without knowing why just that they feel something special is happening in this place.
I will make a way where there seems no way. Continue to stand without moving, I will show myself true to my Word - for I am not like a man that I should lie; every Word I have spoken into your heart will come to pass as I said it would . And it will not return empty handed in any way. But it will come with its fullness. You will; l lack in no area when it comes.
This is an eternal assignment from the Father. Don’t let go of the vision! Get ready!
We believe we receive our land, buildings, and everything needed bay faith in Jesus’ Name. We see it completed with the eye of faith. We take possession of it and lay hold of it by faith. We receive the skilled workers, quality materials, excellent furnishings, beautiful landscaping and all the finances. We call these things into this ministry. It will fulfill the vision of taking the good news to our cities, our provinces and states, our nations and the world!
