Located at the southern tip of México, Guatemala is the most populated country in Central America. Of its more than 13 million inhabitants, approximately 75% live below the poverty line. San Raymundo is a rural town located beyond the bustling streets of Guatemala City. The majority of the Guatemalans we serve reside in the rural mountainous areas around San Raymundo. These mountainous countrysides are where you find the heart of this nation.
In just one week, alongside of Casa Por Cristo, we will partner with a local church to construct a home from start to finish for a family in need. This home will consist of three rooms and a large front porch. With adequate housing provided, families are relieved of one of their greatest financial struggles and a break is made in this vicious cycle. Children are given hope for the future while parents can use their resources for food and necessities rather than shelter. As the American church partners with the Guatemalan church, a perfect picture of the Gospel is painted as cultures and nations are bridged together bringing about necessary provisions in the name of Christ.
