Justin is a kind boy who lives with his grandmother, mother, stepfather, and his sister at his grandmother’s house in Guatemala. Justin loves playing with his friends and going to school! Justin’s father left the family some time ago and does not contribute to the family anymore financially. Justin’s house is made up of block walls with tin roofing and a cement floor. As Justin’s sponsor, you help provide him with the opportunity to attend the childcare center where he will receive nutritious meals, medical care, and a good education. Most importantly, he will experience Christ’s love for him and learn from the Bible. Thank you for blessing this young boy and his family with this precious gift.
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.
