Rick and Lisa Bursey have spent their lives leading and teaching children. Rick was the youth pastor for Heartland, A Church Connected and Lisa was a schoolteacher. They led several groups of youth to do humanitarian work amongst poor families in Mexico. With each trip, Rick and Lisa longed to be a greater voice for orphaned and abandoned Mexican children. In 2008 the Bursey’s left their careers, sold their home, and moved with their sons Alex and Jackson to Linares, Mexico. Rick and Lisa have partnered with in-countrycharity Back2Back Mexico and have spent many years working in the community among the poor with government workers, building the infrastructure that is now allowing them to open this new orphanage project in Linares. Possibilities House or Casa Posibilidades, is a labour of love that will set a new standard for children’s homes in the Linares region and potentially nation-wide.
