Rick and Lisa Bursey
Rick and Lisa left Canada in 2008 to pursue a call to help the orphans of Mexico. After visiting many times and seeing the quality of care being received by children in institutions there, they felt that they had to do something. Not knowing exactly how God was planning to fulfill this calling they sold everything and headed south. After all this time, Possibilities House is the fruit of their labour and the realization of the vision God has put in their hearts.
Possibilities House is a family style facility with homes of 8 children and a set of parents in each house. They are starting with a capacity of 16 and eventually will move up to 40+ as resources permit. It has been a long a tedious journey but they are excited at what God is doing for orphan care in Mexico. The Burseys have formed their own charitable organization in Canada called Possibilities House For Children (www.possibilitieshouse.org) and have teamed up with a global orphan care organization in Mexico called Back2Back Ministries (www.back2back.org). Together they have an opportunity to raise the level of care for countless numbers of Mexican children who otherwise would have no hope.
Ultimately, Rick and Lisa will raise children that understand that it is more blessed to give than to receive. The Possibilities House plan includes using its own resources and children to minister to their city, teaching them that we all have far more value through giving to others than merely receiving hand-outs. Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is older… he may just change an entire community!
