From the mountains of Cedar Crest, New Mexico to the mountains of Marinduque, Philippines.
Celing and Lorraine Lamar, the directors of Faith Hope and Love Kid's Ranch, met in the Philippines and were married in 1990.
Daddy and Mommy, as they are known, currently have three children, DJ (26), Micah (24), and Catherine (21). Lorraine, a native New Mexican, and Celing, a Philipino islander, have been involved in missions since 1984. Their passion is working with kids, being a father and mother to those who need it the most.
It's a calling...........and when you obey the call, amazing things happen!
They walk by faith, not sight~
The Lamar family has grown........... being who God created them to be and enjoying it!
If not for these 3 amazing kids, the ranch doesn't exist. This is their heart as well as their parents.
They agreed to adopted 3 more siblings into the Lamar family so here we are! added 3 more Lamars
As time goes by, our kids grow up and eventually go their own way.. We just hope and pray that its God's way. We did our best the raise them His way! It's so painful to let go but it's a part of life to watch your kids fly out and away from the nest into the next chapter of their life. Dj went to California for almost 2 years but is now back working on his music here in the Philippines. He takes pictures and makes videos for the ranch. Micah is training and mentoring young boys in basketball and helps at the ranch a few days a week whenever he can. Catherine is living in the USA. We have adopted 3 children Avrio,Appy and Avy. It's almost like starting over again and hope we can do a better job the second round. God continues to provide all we need and is so faithful to our little family!
