Caring for Orphans in Guatemala

Guatemala orphan alliance 1st mtgIn Guatemala, something new is happening, and LifePoint has played a significant role! The church in Guatemala is coming together to answer God’s call to care for orphans. The Guatemala Orphan Alliance met for the first time after being created at the inaugural Orphan Ministry Conference held in Guatemala earlier this year in June. A subset of the 225+ Guatemala orphan advocates attending that conference have decided to step up and work together to address the orphan crisis in this beautiful country. The Alliance will focus on coordinating a National Orphan Sunday later this year and in working together with the government to have the local church step up to care for orphans through foster care and adoption.

The Orphan Conference was conceived by Legacy, LifePoint’s Orphan Ministry, and Oscar and Anna Maria Campos, our missionary partners working at the SETECA seminary in Guatemala City. Legacy then engaged other key partners such as Hope For Orphans, Orphan Outreach, and the Christian Alliance for Orphans who provided great content in numerous presentations alongside local Guatemalan speakers that included the former First Lady of Guatemala and the Undersecretary of Child Welfare and Protection. It is amazing to see how God can use ideas generated at LifePoint to impact global orphan care. Please continue to pray for the Guatemala Alliance for Orphans and most of all for those beautiful children who will find forever homes due to these efforts
