Serving Children in Mexico

At a glace

Mexico is one of the world’s top tourist destinations, known for its mountains, rainforests, and tropical climate. But the beautiful scenery and vibrant culture can’t hide the country’s malnutrition statistics–affecting over 34% of children under 5. Additionally, indigenous communities throughout the country still struggle to educate their children, and the Gospel remains largely unknown.

Population: 130,306,099

Ministry Overview

Believing fatherless children often grow up to create more fatherless children, we work to break the orphan cycle by caring for at-risk youth and raising them to be godly, faithful, and responsible young adults.

By God’s grace, we have been privileged to love and care for many children who–with Gospel-centered care and mentorship–have grown to love Him.

  • 25 children served

Areas of Focus

Since 2007 we have worked with Mexican nationals who are passionate about rescuing and caring for orphaned and vulnerable children.

The children we serve are given regular opportunities to hear the Gospel and observe the converted lifestyles of believing adults. Many children come to a saving knowledge and relationship with Christ and are baptized while in our care.

We work hard to motivate students to study and learn. Children who arrive in our care are often behind in school, so we teach them to read and help them catch up with their peers.

We work with DIF, the Mexican authority over children, to care for those they send our way. These children have nowhere else to go, and it is our privilege to love and serve them for either a short- or long-term stay.
