My name is Felipe Renault. I was born and raised in Mexico in a city called Hermosillo in the state of Sonora. And I have been a full time volunteer since May 2009. For the first 10 years, I was a full time volunteer with YWAM (Youth With A Mission). From the YWAM base in San Diego/Baja, I was sent out to different counties in Central America, the Caribbean and Africa to train and teach other YWAM bases in running a program called Homes of Hope.
In 2017, I went to Europe to look into pioneering the program in Romania. It was at the YWAM base in Lausanne, Switzerland where I met my beautiful wife Yeji Hwang (Renault). She was born in South Korea but raised in East Africa (Tanzania) by her missionary parents who have been investing their time and effort in the youth of this country.
After so many years of traveling the world building shelter for the poor, me and my wife have decided to help her parents in Tanzania. By creating a non-profit in the US called 12 Stones to raise awareness and finances to continue helping those in great need of shelter, we plan on investing our near future in helping those who need help the most.
We invite you to come along this journey with us, and to join us in prayer. Thank you!
