On January 23, 1999, a church van was returning from a Bible conference when there was a fatal accident leaving 3 of our dear ladies dead and 12 injured. One was the 5-month-old bride of our Assistant Pastor Juan Manuel Vallejo and another was his mother. From the time of the accident until the time that I was able to arrive to the scene, Juan Manuel Vallejo won 33 souls to Christ including hard hearted policemen, ambulance helpers and people that stopped to see the accident, among others.

Juan Manuel knew that his mother and his bride were right with God and were in the center of God’s will. Juan Manuel and his wife, Annabel de Vallejo, had surrendered to go to Brazil as missionaries. Our church had voted one month before the accident during our mission’s conference to save up enough money to send them on a survey trip to Brazil before they went on deputation. Juan Manuel’s mother Consuelo de Vallejo was quite a soul-winner. The night before her home-going, waiting to get into the building for the Bible Conference, she was winning souls. The other lady, Rosa, was also a dear dedicated Christian.

The accident was no accident in God’s plans but Juan asked, “Pastor, why would God let this happen?” As I pondered this, I visited the hospital of the other injured. One young lady, 15 years old, named Gloria Ramirez was in a comma in the Intensive Care Unit and was not expected to live. She recuperated by God’s help and I talked to her. She told me, that she had no one to take care of her when she left the hospital. I began to tell her of the Lester Roloff homes that used to take care of girls like her. God then began dealing with me to help her and others like her.

I told Juan that maybe from this “accident” we could start a Home to help and to train young people. I told him that maybe God would use this Home to see these people live for God and maybe they would be responsible to see hundreds and maybe thousands saved. This is our purpose. Our motto verse is Psalm 68:6, “God setteth the solitary in families: He bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.” We hope to help people that have been left to themselves and to help people that have been bound in sin.

In March of 1999, I took Juan Manuel to Pastor’s School in my home church, The First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana; to get his mind off the accident. While we were there my preacher, Dr. Jack Hyles, called us into his office and wanted to know about the accident. Later in the week, he called us on the platform and told the story and gave us $5,000.00 as well as an offering to start the Annabel de Vallejo Home. He also started a scholarship in honor of Juan’s mother, Consuelo de Vallejo and another in Juan Manuel Vallejo’s name for one young man and one young lady to go to Hyles-Anderson College as long as the college and the Annabel de Vallejo Home are in existence.

We would appreciate your prayers and support for the Annabel de Vallejo Home.

Yours for Souls,

Annabel de Vallejo Children’s Home Prayer Letter: Thank You for Your Continued Support!

Annabel de Vallejo Children's Home Prayer Letter: Thank You for Your Continued Support!I want to thank you for being such a blessing to the children’s home. We are very blessed to see what the Lord is doing. The Annabel Home is continuing because of your prayers and donations. My husband Romel and I are very grateful. We know that without the Lord’s help, we would not be able to continue this amazing ministry. I am also grateful for the staff that the Lord has given me; without them, the Annabel Home would not continue to be. The Lord has provided hard workers, for which we are very blessed.

I want to mention one important note. Many of you are wanting to know about sending items or clothing to the home. Unfortunately, at this time we cannot take things to Mexico, but you can donate money-wise. If you do decide to donate, please specify and let us know. I also know that some of you were sponsoring a child. We want to thank you for this grand act, but unfortunately, we are no longer doing the sponsoring. You can give a special offering for an outing or a special event or even one of the needs that is mentioned below in this letter. Also, we have canceled all Texas addresses, just in case your support or any other mail has been sent back to you. Thank you for being such a blessing. God bless you.

Now a word from our house parents, Juan Manuel and Betty Gomez

Hello, my name is Betty, and my husband’s name is Juan Manuel Gomez. We oversee the children of the Annabel de Vallejo Home, and it has been a blessing to us. On behalf of all the children and workers, we just want to say thank you. Thank you for being a blessing to us. We are very grateful to God for your lives and your being a part of this ministry.

This December was very different, but at the same time, we were very blessed. Many people, even government workers, gave the children’s home Christmas parties. The children broke piñatas, received many gifts, and played games. Our guests played with the children, and they had such a good time. The special part of this Christmas, though, was that God allowed us to share the Gospel with the guests who arrived.

Many children have rejoined their relatives, which gives us a lot of joy. All those who have already left call us to greet us and thank us for the great blessing that the Annabel de Vallejo Home was in their lives. We are always encouraging them to seek the Lord and also praying to reach their families one day.

We thank God for letting us receive many new children. This January 2023, we received 4 new children—3 boys and 1 girl: Robert, Alfredo, Rafita, and Teresita. We have 15 kids total—7 girls and 8 boys. The oldest is Liz, who is 16 years old, and the youngest is Rosita; she is just 6 months old. We are thankful that we will be receiving some more younger children in February. My husband and I are very happy to be able to have a part in the lives of these children.

We would like to share with you some prayer requests and needs. We are in desperate need of an industrial washing machine, a dryer, and a commercial refrigerator; and we need repairs done on our mini-bus. In total, we need $6,500.00. Lastly, we are also needing some cribs and single beds since we are receiving mostly younger children.

My husband and I, the children, and the workers of the Annabel de Vallejo Home want to say thank you for your support and prayers. May God continue to bless you and your family.
