Elmer is a young boy in Guatemala who lives with his parents and two sisters. He is an excellent student and his favorite subject is Math. Elmer says he would like to become a doctor so he can help people in his community and talk to them about God. Playing the piano and supporting his parents are two more of his favorite things to do. His parents work hard to provide, but Elmer’s father’s job as a farmer does not pay very much. He sows corn and beans, which he harvests to feed his family and sell for profit. Unfortunately, the family sometimes struggles to afford basic needs such as food, education, medicine, and clothing. Elmer is looking for a sponsor who will pray for him and his family and give him the opportunity to receive nutritious food, educational assistance, healthcare, and biblical training. Your sponsorship of Elmer would greatly impact his life. Will you sponsor Elmer today?

 

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.
