Jesus is a caring young boy who lives with his parents and his sister in Peru. His father is their sole source of income, because his mother must stay home and take care of the family. Jesus’ sister has muscular dystrophy preventing her from being able to walk. They live in a plywood house uphill, which makes things very difficult for his sister. Many of the people in their area also suffer from drug and alcohol abuse. Jesus enjoys attending preschool, and he loves playing with friends. He says when he grows up he would like to be a firefighter so he can help people. By sponsoring Jesus, you can help his family meet their basic needs, and discover the Lord’s love for them.
