My Redeemer Lives CarePoint

My Redeemer Lives CarePoint is in El Jicaro, which is located three hours northeast of Guatemala City in the department of El Progreso. In 1992, Noemí and Don Gustavo Carranza began a Christian fellowship in El Jicaro. The Carranzas grew up in El Jicaro and are extremely invested in this community. They began to create projects for social support and outreach. The New Jerusalem Christian School (Colegio Cristiano Nueva Jerusalén) began in 2002, and “I Am a Promise” (Soy una Promesa) was started in January 2014.
The New Jerusalem Christian School (Colegio Cristiano Nueva Jerusalén) educates 200 vulnerable children ages four to 18 years old. The school also provides additional food for children who are undernourished.

With the partnership of the St. Matthew Lutheran Church, the children at My Redeemer Lives CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the St. Matthew Lutheran Church community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at My Redeemer Lives

Empowering a child is one of the most personal ways that you can make an impact on global poverty. It is more than providing for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. When you sponsor a child, you build a relationship that shows that child they are valuable, worth loving, and worth investing in.

Your sponsorship is the starting point of a journey that equips vulnerable children, their families, and their communities to create sustainable transformation. When you sponsor a child with HopeChest, you are not just supporting one child — you are helping transform entire communities.

Start a Fundraiser for My Redeemer Lives

HopeChest’s approach to alleviating poverty is asset-based, because we believe that in every place on earth there are resources, not only for surviving, but for thriving and succeeding. Local leaders tell us what they do have instead of what they don’t have, and we walk with them to see their vision for their community come to fruition through development projects.

A fundraiser for My Redeemer Lives CarePoint is transformational rather than transactional. It promotes empowerment rather than dependence. Your support for these projects will go a long way as, together, we invest in holistic and sustainable solutions that address the root issues of poverty.

Write My Child

When our staff visit CarePoints, the most common question they get from children is how their sponsors are doing. They LOVE hearing from you!
