CARLOS & CHERYL VARGAS
Carlos and Cheryl Vargas have had one mission for the last 30 years, saving lives. In 1987 Carlos returned to his native Guatemala to live out what he thought were his final days, God had a different plan. Carlos recovered from his illness and felt that God was calling him to care for the needy and sick in his native country. Since that day Carlos, his wife Cheryl and their family have founded the far-reaching ministry of Hope of Life International. Hope of Life has rescued over 25,000 children, built a village of transformation for orphaned children to be raised in family settings, cared for the elderly at their Oasis de Eden elderly home, fed thousands of families across Guatemala and provided medical care to countless more. SCG has had a front row seat to this eternity changing ministry for the past 15 years and is honored to play a small part in the impact they are making in Guatemala.
