"Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world." (James1:27)
Colina De Luz
Located just outside Tijuana, Mexico, Colina de Luz (Hill of Light) is home for about 60 boys and girls. How did these children end up at this home? Some have been abused, some orphaned, some abandoned, reflecting the poverty that surrounds their family life and community. Situated on top of a hill, as the name suggests, Colina not only offers a literal and figurative oasis to these desperately needy children, but truly provides a home.
We are a Christian home for children that has been under the directorship of Tomás and Maricela Shockey since 1989. They, along with the loving Christian staff and missionaries have cared for, educated and loved hundreds of children from backgrounds of abandonment, neglect and abuse. It’s not uncommon for these children to arrive at the home without any previous schooling, never having felt warm water from a faucet, and many living on the streets.
