Proyecto Genesis is Alonso and I's church’s outreach program that serves in a government run protection center for adolescents ages 12-17 on the west side of Santiago. This particular center is divided into four smaller homes, two for the boys and two for the girls. Currently we have the capacity to visit 3 of the 4 homes on a bi-monthly basis. Our goal by the end of this year is to grow our volunteer basis and consolidate our serving teams in order to visit all 4 homes every other week. The mission of this project is to reach out to the young children and adolescents in Chile that are abandoned and forgotten and teach them valuable life skills and values through the Biblical worldview and the Bible. Our vision is to establish a model that can be replicated and used by different churches across the country to serve in these government-run homes in all of Chile. There is so much need and our church alone cannot combat this problem, but united as the body of Christ we are capable of so much more. We desire to bring churches together to share the love of Christ to children who are outside of the system and so often forgotten. Alonso and I feel that God has called us to dedicate our marriage and our lives in service to this mission and we would appreciate your partnership with us through prayer and if you feel led through your financial support.
