Allen’s Changed Life

Allen is currently in the carpentry school at Love Guatemala. He is a great student who shows much promise in his future as a carpenter. That being said, life has not always been easy for Allen. When he was just three years old, his father left his family. It was a very hard day for him. 

Although he has had difficulties living without his father, he is very grateful to God that his mother has always been a great support. He is also very thankful for all that God is doing in his life.

He is very grateful for Love Guatemala. Allen said, “Love Guatemala has blessed me in many ways and I am thankful for the opportunity to be here”. He is thankful that he can learn a talent that will help him succeed in life, but he is even more thankful for the devotionals that he is learning from. He said, “Learning in the devotionals has helped me to know God more and learn more about the Bible”. He knows God is doing big things in his life and he is so excited to see all that God will do in the future in Love Guatemala and in the rest of his life.

Thank you for being a part of changed lives like Allen’s!
