Meet Pan de Vida.

Ministries Pan de Vida was founded in February 1994, when twelve children were placed under the care of a missionary couple, Dario and Maria Elena Hilbrands.  Within two years they were caring for forty children who had been rescued from the streets or situations of abuse and neglect.

In the year 2000, with the support of the German Federation of Soccer and groups from Canada, they were able to obtain more than 7 acres of land to build separate spaces for the boys and the girls, a school, an auditorium for different activities and an area for recreation to promote the children’s integral development.

In 2015 the Hilbrands delegated the responsibility as directors to Jeremy and Ana Laura Van Beelen, an exemplary couple with a serving heart.  The Van Beelens continue with the vision of Rewriting Stories.

Pan de Vida's goal is to continue changing the lives of more children and youth by supplying their basic needs within an environment of love, acceptance and hope.

FBC Chanute's last mission to Pan de Vida was in 2021. Here are some photos of that trip.
