New Hope for a Guatamalan
New home brings hope for a Guatemalan family
The Quisqué Suquén family is a family of five, including two boys who attend Mi Especial Tesoro school in Guatemala through sponsorship with ChildCare International (CCI). The parents wanted to better support their children’s education and approached Mi Especial Tesoro a few years ago.
The father used to drive a truck to collect garbage in Chimaltenango. He now dedicates his time to preach the Gospel, while his wife takes care of the children.
Like many in the region, the family faces ongoing economic limitations. Until recently, they lived in a house made of wood and sheet metal. Their living conditions were inadequate, where the parents had to share a bedroom with their three children. Our partners in Guatemala recently helped to build the family a new house through donations received at ChildCare International.
The family now has a comfortable place where the parents and the children have their own rooms. They also have a kitchen area where the children can do their homework. The new house also features a washroom with a pump that brings clean water to the sink, as well as a high-efficiency stove so they can cook using less wood.
The new house has been life-changing for the family, who along with our partners, are grateful for God’s provision and goodness.
