Ricky & Susan, Founders |
1993, Rick & Susan Fowler joined their church on a missions trip to the Philippines.
On this trip they were to help out with various crusades. While on this trip their
hearts were touched with one thing- love. Love for the precious children around
them that went without the things that the Fowlers took for granted to live. While
there they met a missionary couple, Larry & Bobbie Womack, who had been working
in the Philippines for 8 years training and raising up disciples through their
Disciple Training School. They also had just begun a small feeding program with
the children in the village where they held school. The Fowlers gleaned much from
the Womack's and from there continued a relationship both financially and prayerfully
with the couple.
1995, while on furlough, the Womack's visited Rick & Susan. While there the
Fowlers expressed to the Womack's their desire to do more for the children of
the Philippines. They made the decision to return to the Philippines in 1996 and
to live there until directed by the Lord on what they should do. Through much
prayer the Fowlers got their answer and that answer was to begin The Hope Foundation-
a foundation to reach out to the forgotten children of the world and all who are
hurting and in need. Four months later, with their own finances and the help of
their family, the Leyte/Samar Hope Foundation was established and incorporated.
Seven more feeding programs were formed, and a new facility to house food and
train new believers was purchased.
returning to the U.S. in 1996, the Fowlers then set up The Hope Foundation of
America where the financial and fundraising part of the organization would be
established. Since then the Foundation has assisted financially in forming feeding
outreaches in the U.S. and has established and operates The Haven of Hope Children's
Home for the children of the Philippines.
