Chiquimula is a new location of ministry in chiqui.pencil.boxGuatemala for Potter’s House.  Although different in terrain, the Treasures that live in that department (state) also live in extreme poverty and scavenge to sustain life.  In comparison, the  people scavenging in the Guatemala City dump earn an average of $3/day, whereas the scavengers in Chiquimula earn on average only $5 every two weeks! Chiquimula is a rural, arid, extremely hot area, and the scavengers and children walk up to 2 hours each way to get to work or school.

The only elementary school in the region Potter’s House is ministering to accommodates 250 children up to sixth grade – the last grade many of the children will ever attend.  School supplies are hard to come by, and the lack of resources make it even more difficult for them to learn and thrive.

Please consider blessing  the Treasures of Chiquimula with new school supplies when their school year begins in mid January.  A gift of $25 will provide a student with a pencil box filled with new school supplies, such as pencils, pens, crayons, a ruler, scissors, a calculator and other necessary items to ensure a productive school year. Would you consider a special gift toward the supplies the children need to prosper, and hopefully stay in school?

Helping to educate these children well will help to improve the futures they will have and hopefully lift them out of a life of poverty.
