A Father to the Fatherless

Father to the FatherlessIt wasn’t supposed to happen! A tragic car accident … his mom injured … both his dad and little brother killed.

Christhian’s life was thrown into turmoil. Not only was he heartbroken and grieving … but he and his mom soon found that eking out a meager existence became a daily struggle.

Today, though, Christhian says, “Thanks to the help of the people in our church and my school, we’ve been able to survive.” He attends the LACC school in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

“Thank you to God and all the generous people who help me have an education, lunch, and many other blessings,” he says.

We’re grateful to friends and sponsors like you who allow Latin America ChildCare schools to be there for children when they suffer such terrible loss.

Denisse, another student at the Guayaquil school, has also benefited from the strength and comfort of her teachers and church family: her father died when she was just in second grade. Almost simultaneously, her little sister was born … but the birth was difficult, and both mom and baby suffered severe complications.

The little family struggles, but Denisse says, “I want to thank all the people who help me with school, food, and clothes, because they are a blessing to my family.”

She wants to be a doctor when she grows up, saying, “With the school’s help, I will make my dream come true.”

Her mother has recently chosen to follow Christ as Savior, and Denisse is thrilled that everyone in her family is now a Christian.
