We envision motivated and self-sustaining communities throughout Latin America for mothers and fathers who have few options and little hope, where they can receive free, compassionate, godly counseling, training and viable options that will save millions of impoverished babies and mothers.
To be the voice of the most impoverished, instilling hope, providing counsel, job training, education, and preserving life as dictated by biblical principles and the 1969 Organization of American States (OAS) Pact of San José, Article 4.1: "Everyone has the right to have their life respected. This right will be protected by law and, in general, from the moment of conception." The OAS countries signed this pact in order to enforce the agreements reached in 1948 on the rights and duties of man.
"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute."
Proverbs 31:8 (NIV)
Foundation Adonai Vida y Dignidad in the United States is a ministry branch of Seminario Reformado Latinoamericano (SRL) that provides services and financial help to the CORPORACIÒN ADONAI VIDA Y DIGNIDAD in Latin America.
Corporaciòn Adonai began in 2017 with a small group of volunteers in Medellin, Colombia. In the beginning, it used the SRL Building as a center of operations. Now this foundation has its own center of operations and is completely independent from SRL. This group of volunteers reached out to women from poor neighborhoods. These women were often found in severe circumstances with few options available to ensure their health and safety. The volunteers of CAVD offered services to children, godly counseling to pregnant women, and encouraged them to make the best choice possible after they were fully informed of all consequences. Free services were provided to all of them, including adoption information and help from the agency and churches.
Because of meager funds and resources, the lack of its own physical plan of operations, and the fact that it was managed by volunteers, Corporaciòn Adonai's work was very difficult, albeit productive. For example, in early 2019, Natalia* learned that she was pregnant. Coupled with a painful history and excessive emotional baggage, she was convinced that an abortion was the only option. However, by God's grace, a volunteer approached her before this decision was finalized. The agency accompanied Natalia through this difficult time, uplifting her in prayer and encouraging perseverance. Eventually, sweet little Saray was born, and she and her mother are grateful for the assistance they received.
