Yeison is growing up in a troubled home in Guatemala. His mother abandoned the family some time ago. Yeison’s father is a land worker, but his income is not enough for their basic needs. Yeison’s father needs a safe place for his son to go while he works. They live in a house made of adobe walls, tin roofing and dirt floor along with seven other people. Since they have no electricity, meals are cooked using firewood. Thank you for choosing to offer Yeison hope for the future and for touching his life for Christ. At the childcare center, he will receive nutritious food and a good education. He will learn God’s Word taught by a loving staff. May the Lord bless you for your kindness.
Oratorio Child Development Center
The Oratorio Child Development Center serves children in the small city of Oratorio in Guatemala. At the center, children attend general education classes in addition to learning life skills. Staff provide the children with nutritious meals each day. Every week teachers share from God’s Word in devotion time in addition to leading Bible classes. Since many children do not attend church, the center also participates in evangelistic events such as summer camp each year.
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.
