Through a Pastor from one of their supporting churches, the Troups were introduced to A Place of Hope Africa. A Place of Hope is an orphanage that cares for 52 children from ages 2-18 years old in Enugu, Nigeria. Nigeria has 8 million orphans and a reported 2.2 million of them suffer from HIV-AIDS, making this truly a place where the hope of Christ needs to be given. Along with the orphanage, A Place of Hope has planted two churches with Nigerian Pastors in place. The Troup Family oversees A Place of Hope making sure the children are properly cared for, loving them, and showing them the love of Christ on a daily basis.
