Editor's note: We're thrilled to again be partnering with our friends at Unbound to be a part of their mission serving families around the world! Unbound has joined us as a "World View Wednesday" contributor. Each month, Unbound will be sharing a column to inform you about the lives of families around the world. We will also offer you the chance to partner tangibly with them by prayerfully considering sponsoring a child or aging friend. Lisa Hendey
Bryan is a handsome seven-year-old boy growing up in Guatemala. His dream is to become a fireman so that he can help people. Bryan’s favorite subject in school is math. He also enjoys playing soccer and coloring. His job at home is to put his toys and clothes away.
Bryan lives with his mom, dad and younger brother. They all live together in a two room house; one room is used as a bedroom and the other room is the kitchen. The home is made of corrugated tin and concrete. Both of Bryan’s parents work, but their income is not steady.
Once Bryan is sponsored, he will begin to receive the tangible benefits such as education and nutrition. This will also allow the family to be fully integrated in a local caring community, with programs and services designed to improve their quality of life and empower them to break the cycle of poverty.
