We became close and she was always praying for the ministry. After we left Belize, she told us about 5 different kids in Belize who had financial struggles when it came to cover their school fees and school supplies. From serving at the home we know how important education is in Belize. Almost half the population there is under the age of 18 and a good majority of youth wind up in gangs or on the street. By providing them with education it decreases their risk of this to happen.
Vessels for Christ supports Debbisha Moriera, Alvin Sandoval, Preyia Andrews, Danielle Andrews, and Kylesha Andrews. These kids range in age from 12-18. We keep an eye on their school report cards every semester and urge them to grow in Christ. It has been encouraging to see some of these kids already graduate from high school. We are continuing to try to help them as they transition into college and trade school.
