The Guajitos district of Guatemala City is considered by some to be one of the most dangerous places on earth. Rampant drug use, unimaginable violent crime, and the horror of prostitution combine to lead desperate mothers to send their sons and daughters north to our country in hopes of finding a pathway to a better life. Living Stones Ministry, pastored by Rolando Gomez, a street child in his youth, has opened the doors to a rescue center for the past several years. To date, no child among the hundreds that have been taught and touched by his ministry have been ensnared in the rampant evil that surrounds them. His secret – the love of God and the Word of God. Hundreds more could come into these walls of refuge but the space is too small. Another spacious building is for sale around the corner; rooms for Bible teaching, Christian youth groups, and especially for a trade school. The cost is $100,000. For GCRI, this is a vast sum but we are praying for God to touch His people. Will you help!
