Alexia lives with her parents and older sister in a small home in Guatemala. She has three other siblings, but they are married and moved to live with their new families. Alexia desires to study and graduate from school. Will you help this dream become a reality? Her father works hard as a farmer but struggles to meet the needs of his youngest daughter, Alexia. You can give her the opportunity to attend the Matochos Child Development Center where she will receive physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual care. She will be taught the Word of God on a daily basis and be discipled as she grows in her relationship with the Lord. Thank you for sponsoring Alexia and offering her hope for the future.
Matochos Child Development Center
The Matochos Child Development Center shows God’s love to children in need. The center partners with a local church through an evangelical partner made up of church leaders. For five days a week, children eat delicious meals cooked by the center staff. In addition to receiving an education, children are taught from the Word of God. Every afternoon a devotion is given and two times a week Bible classes are taught to the children.
Guatemala is the most populated country in Central America. The majority religion is Christianity and is primarily Roman Catholic. Families in Guatemala suffer from many difficult circumstances such as drug use, alcoholism, physical violence, broken homes, and malnourishment. Often children are forced to begin working at an early age. Many families are extremely poor, live in small dilapidated homes and don’t make enough to provide for their physical needs.
