Open Doors Orphanage
We knew nothing more than our Lord’s calling deep within our hearts for those HE loves! We also knew that the time was now, in this country “home” to more than 370,000 orphans!
Though Paradise Bound continues to live out the mission of James 1:27 since our humble beginnings in 1997 by ministering to Orphans and Widows in their distress through our Mission Trips, Kingdom Builders, Medical Clinics and Discipleship programs. And even though Paradise Bound, through our Lord Jesus Christ has touched over 100,000 lives, HE began calling us to even more through fervent prayer and Acts 7:34!
“I have surely seen the mistreatment of my people…and have heard their cries, and I have come down to rescue them. Come now. I send you!”
Our Lord had done HIS part, HE was now asking us to do ours!
The battle for the souls of “the least of these” began! The Guatemalan government said “No!” Friends within Guatemala told us, “It is impossible.” Others laughed and said “You’ll never receive your certification, many have tried and failed.” The enemy mocked and rallied everything against us, yet God continued saying, “Come NOW. I send you!” In faith believing we never lost sight of our Lord and it was then that HE began to show us who HE is as doors opened!
On Nov 3, 2011 the “impossible” happened as the enemy could no longer stand against the prayers of thousands for Paradise Bound and Open Doors. That day was marked months before to formally dedicate Open Doors Orphanage to our Lord. In HIS power, our certification was signed only hours before the dedication by a government that had said “No!”
Late on Dec 1, 2011 our first two children were safely tucked-in at our brand new 4,200 sq ft facility! More children will follow in these next days as the needs are great. Praises continue to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as do our prayers for HIS wisdom and guidance as we fully enter HIS call to ALL of us! Join with us in prayer and allow HIM to move in and through your hearts as HE has ours!

Being dedicated to and existing for the glory of God Almighty, our vision is to see the children of PBM’s Open Doors Orphanage obedient to the calling of Jesus Christ in their lives, in order to fulfill what He has called each one of us and them to: a personal relationship with Him and to “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
We will accomplish this vision by 1) raising the children of Open Doors with emphasis on a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, fostered by a Christian upbringing centered in God’s word; and 2) protecting, nurturing and restoring children and families in need through Jesus Christ. Thus Open Doors will develop the potential of each individual child to become the hands, feet and heart of our Lord wherever He may lead them.
