Biblical education helps the very poor escape their current life path. Children born to poor parents have a very weak or no education. In Guatemala, when the boys turn 12, they head to the fields and become day labors where they make $10 a day. Once grown men, they will receive $14 a day.
The girls have their paths laid out as well. At age 14, they are expected to find a husband or their families will find one for them. Most of these girls will have their first child before their 17th birthday. A biblical world view and biblical education is the best way to break this cycle and give these children a fighting chance in life. –Mark Lee, GoServ Global Guatemala Director
