Donna Perry was born and raised in Gaston County, North Carolina. She and her husband Eddie have five children between them and seven grandchildren. On her first mission trip to Nueva Esperanza in 2006, she fell in love with the ministry and the children. She became a child sponsor on that first trip. Soon she will have the opportunity to see the first child she sponsored graduate from high school! The mission of this ministry, bringing the love and hope of Jesus to children and their families, is something she is proud to be a part of. In her mind, the familiar words “Train up a child in the way they should go” from Proverbs 6:22 summarizes Nueva Esperanza’s work.
