Ministry Partner Information:

Agua De Vida Orphanage/House of Prayer Ministries located in Ciudad Morelos, 25 minutes south of Yuma, Arizona. Agua de Vida is both a church and a safe, secure and loving home for 35+ orphans aged 0-18 who have sought refuge due to less fortunate circumstances. Mario and Veronica Santos are the host parents at the orphanage and their mission is to provide an atmosphere that builds a child’s faith in God and grows them in Godly character. Mario and Veronica have 6 children: Stephanie, Michelle, Kevin, Nathan, Julio, and Natalia. Originally from California, the Santos family said yes to the Lord’s call on their lives and left America behind to pursue God in Mexico, over 10 years ago. Mario and Veronica have a heart for the surrounding community and often assist with neighborhood relief projects, evangelism and community outreaches.

Quarterly Update Information:

With a family of 30+ the needs of the orphanage are constantly changing. They range from fresh fruits and vegetables, milk, and cleaning supplies to large-scale building projects. We try to maintain an up to date on the website but you may want to contact us for more specific information.

After a year and half, we were presented with our License of Operation for Casa Hogar Agua de Vida by the governor's wife, Brenda Ruacho De Vega . This law gave us limited to time to change a whole orphanage. It was some of the most exhausting and stressful times for our home, but with the favor of God and all of the the love, prayer, and support of our friends and family, we are finally done! Can you say GLORY? (See photo below)
