Kids Stand Together

Description

More than 40 percent of Guatemala’s population is younger than 15. Many children are vulnerable to gang activity, poverty, and insecurity from decades of civil conflict.

More than 40 percent of Guatemala’s population is younger than 15. Many are vulnerable to gang activity, poverty, and insecurity from decades of civil conflict.

World Vision's Kids' Camps in Guatemala teach sponsored children to become Christian leaders so they can help tackle the big issues facing their country, such as violence and poverty.

Says Carmelina Saminas, the children’s leader, “Through this [camp] they will know about a guide and this guide is God. They will go back to schools to share with their classmates. That way we will have leadership, but not just any leadership, Christian leadership.”

Please pray for children to integrate biblical values into daily life:

“Lord, sanctify those who commit their hearts to Your lordship. Counsel them as they seek direction from Your Word. Transform their minds so they may become contagious followers of Jesus.”
