At an orphanage, situated on a beautiful 13-acre campus near Guatemala City, more than 150 children find acceptance, stability, and healing in the love of Jesus. All of the children come out of difficult living situations. Some are orphans, others have been abandoned, and others abused. There, each child belongs to a loving, nurturing family made up of house parents and their own children.
Extend Global gives you the opportunity to show Christ to the children of this orphanage by loving them, serving them, and providing hope for them.
This is your opportunity to make an impact in the world, your chance to experience the Gospel, and your chance to love!
Each team will be able to serve the children and the staff at this orphanage by loving them. Everyday, with all we are, we will love on each and every child. We will serve the orphanage by helping them with light construction and general upkeep. As we live and work with them for our time there, we will share the Hope that Christ has given us and share His love with each child that has been forsaken by the world, but chosen by God.
"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." James 1:27
