Ecuador Hope House was started in the 2006 with one girl and a lot of faith.  Through the years, God has blessed and multiplied.  Today, we have 43 girls from the ages of 8 to 21 and we are excited about the days to come.  As we celebrate ten years as Ecuador Hope House this year, we realize this ministry would not be possible without the many prayers and support of those that have partnered with us throughout the years and continue to do so.


Our team is working on more ways to not only give each girl an incredible experience in the Hope House, but to take what is happening in the home and spread that same hope into the communties of the Amazon. We recently launched project Hope Spot, click here to learn more.

​Meet the Founders

Joil and Leah Marbut


Over 18 years ago, our lives collided in Ecuador as God was preparing us for a life of ministry together in the jungles of Ecuador.  Through this journey we have had four wonderful children who are a big part of our ministry and love being a part of what the Lord is doing!  It excites us to see what the Lord has done in and through the lives of the Shuar people we work with.
