On a recent trip to Guatemala, I met the Mendoza family, who recently received a sturdy concrete home through the generosity of Cross International benefactors, and our ministry partner, Hope of Life. Before Cross stepped forward to help, the family was living in a crumbling, broken-down shack.  Now they have a safe place to raise their children. Cecillo, the father, has also experienced a heart transformation in the process — just a few months before construction, he accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior!

At Cross International, our goal is to not only help the poor out of material poverty, but introduce them to the saving love of Jesus. In this photo, the family’s pastor is seen dedicating the new home to the glory of God!
