“A remarkable aspect of Door of Faith is the early engagement of their children in the service of others. By modeling compassion for the needs of others and living out the truth that even the least of these has something of value to share Door of Faith prepares their children to enter into the world with the potential for greatness as God defines it. “Whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant” Matt 20:28”Phil Hodges, Co Author and Co Founder of Lead Like Jesus
“Door of Faith is more than an orphanage, it’s a beacon of love and service to all of northern Baja. We really enjoy bringing groups to see this ministry because everyone always leaves saying they received much more than they gave.”Jim Kirk-Johnson, Director of Operations, Strong Tower Ministries, Southern California
“Portland Vineyard Church has been visiting and ministering with Door of Faith Orphanage since 1996. Door of Faith Orphanage is one of the most integrous, Christ centered, kingdom oriented ministries I have encountered in my 30 years of ministry. Every child is loved and cared for as they would be in their own family. Children are given not only a home and 3 meals a day, but resource and training for the future, hope for a better life and most of all, a family. I can’t count how many times a young person, sharing with our congregation after their trip has used the word “magical” to describe DOFO. While it may not actually be magical, it is without a doubt, one of the clearest examples of the ministry Jesus described when he said ‘Whatever you do for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’”Pastor Glenn Schroder, Portland Vineyard Church, Portland, Oregon
“We first met DJ & Lynette in Ghana in 2014 when they came to visit the CORM Children’s Village. They came prepared to equip, educate and encourage our staff. We had such a wonderful time learning from their 20+ years of ministry, they were vulnerable and real when talking about their experiences and lessons learned. Our lives and ministry were greatly impacted by their time with us.
We had the opportunity to visit Door of Faith for a few days this spring. We were amazed by the children, staff, ministry and grounds. Door of Faith is a true model of what a Children’s Home should look like. Door of Faith is a safe community, full of love and promise for the future. We are so grateful that God brought our ministries together!”Stacy Omorefe, co-founder and co-director CORM Children’s Village, Ghana, Africa
“Our group from Pella, Iowa (BAJA 101) has been coming to La Mision and staying at DOFO for over 15 years. You soon understand when you arrive at DOFO that it is a culture of servant-heartedness. The leadership and staff humbly (and excellently) serve groups as they arrive… and you see the “DOFO Family” (all 100+ of them) genuinely serving each other and the community in many unique ways. It’s a very special place that will inspire you and bring you back.”Sam VanMaanen, BAJA 101/Third Reformed Church, Pella, Iowa
“Relationships matter, a lot; you can spend years in the pews of your church and never really know the people you attend with; but put them together at DOFO for a week and true, lasting relationships are formed: 7 days on the mission field = 7 years in the pew!!!”Pastor Peter Bobbitt, Green Valley Church, Watsonville, CA
“I’ve been taking my youth group down to DOFO now for a few years. In my opinion it is a wonderful place with a staff that is committed not only to the betterment of Mexico but also the future of God’s church. It is a rare pleasure to work with an organization that is so committed to being an effective tool in the community in which God has called them to serve.”Mike Lyskoski, Director of Campus Ministries, New Heights Church, Boise, ID.
