In Guatemala, and other developing places, many kids wake up each morning with much to overcome. Food and clean water are scarce, homes provide little shelter, school is unattainable, and serious sickness is a constant threat.
Edgar’s life began much the same way. When he was 11 days old, his father was killed. His mother could not provide him or his sibling’s basic needs, and placed them in an orphanage to give them a chance at life.
It was here that Casa Bernabé, our longtime ministry partner in Guatemala, connected with Edgar and his family. At Casa Bernabé, they found help, love, care, education, and the good news of Jesus.
“A lot of things changed when I came to Casa Bernabé. The biggest change was the love we felt. They gave us hope. They told us we could have a better future.”
Aware of Jesus’ love for him, Edgar grew into a strong young man. He attended college, got married, had children and began to give back to the community that supported him.
Today, Edgar is still at Casa Bernabé, but not as a young boy in need of hope. He is now the director of the entire ministry, giving daily love and care to children in need just like he once was!
