Almost everyone who met Cherie knew about her vision as it was her driving force. She always spoke excitedly of the one hundred kids and ten homes that she would one day have, of Jeremiah 29:11, and of the dream God had given her while she was in her early twenties. Life’s delays never swayed her and in 2012, after years of serving in other countries and children’s homes, her own dream was transformed into reality when she opened the doors to Residence of Life for six young children in Atenas, Costa Rica.
As of July 1, 2019, Residence of Life will no longer be accepting donations or child sponsorship through Globe International. While Cherie was a missionary under Globe, no one in our current team is. After much prayer and discussion with Cherie’s family, our board, and Globe, we have decided to step out on our own. We can’t say enough for Globe’s partnership through the years and for their support during this transition.
