In just one week, teams working with Casas por Cristo transform an otherwise empty lot into a safe and secure home, complete with cement foundation, electricity, windows, and doors. The family that receives the home receives a tangible symbol of the faithfulness and unconditional love of Jesus Christ. As volunteers gain perspective on the extreme poverty that exists in our world, so do these families better understand God's plan for their lives and His deep desire to take care of their needs.
As we go, our core mission is to reach the people of Guatemala with the love of Jesus Christ. Our ministry is about bringing hope to families in need. It's about a God that loves His children so much that He sends strangers to build them a home with no strings attached.
When families have adequate housing, they are relieved of one of their greatest financial struggles, and a break is made in this vicious cycle of poverty. Children are given hope for the future as parents are able to use their resources for food and necessities rather than shelter. As the American church partners with the Guatemalan church, a perfect picture of the gospel is painted. Cultures and nations are bridged together, bringing tangible hope in the name of Christ.
