Cony is an energetic, sweet girl in Guatemala who lives with her mother and her brother. Cony and her brother are being raised by a single mother who works hard to provide for their needs. In both of Cony’s mother’s relationships, her boyfriends left when they learned she was pregnant. Cony’s mother’s job as a waitress does not pay well, and Cony does not always have what she needs. This kind girl loves music and is always singing! She wants to become a teacher when she grows up. Will you help her pursue her dream? By sponsoring Cony, you can help provide her with the physical, emotional, mental, social, and educational support she needs to thrive. Most importantly, Cony will grow up hearing the Word of God and will be discipled by the loving staff at the Getsemani Child and Youth Development Center. Thank you for making a life-changing impact on Cony’s life and for allowing her to hear about her heavenly Father who will never abandon her.
Getsemani Child Development Center
The Getsemani Child Development Center is a place where children experience the love of Christ. The local church provides the center with materials, furniture and the equipment needed to function efficiently. At the center, children receive a quality education and nutritious meals. Children also regularly participate in songs of worship and biblical readings. Finally, staff teach biblical truths and disciple children in their walks with Christ.
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.
