Anderson is a wonderful boy living in Guatemala. Several years ago, Anderson’s parents divorced, and the children were split up. Due to issues with his stepfather, Anderson was recently reunited with his brother and is now also living with his father. Anderson’s father works as a builder, but his income is not enough to support both children. They rent a house made of blocks and tin walls, with tin roofing and cement floor. In their village, they do not have running water and must buy it. Anderson likes to study, and his favorite subjects are Math and PE. Anderson dreams of being an Accountant and Fireman. By supporting Anderson, you will bless this boy with a safe and healthy place to grow in his faith.
Las Vistas Child Development Center
The Las Vistas Child Development Center comes alongside families to help meet the needs of local children. Children are taught in school five days a week. Cooks at the center provide the children with delicious meals and they have access to safe drinking water. Children learn life skills at the center and receive counseling when needed. Additionally, the staff leads devotions each day and conducts Bible classes twice a week.
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.
