Jose came to Rehoboth in the middle of March of 2011. His parents left him in the park and told him they would come back for him soon. They did not return. Jose was scared when it got dark so he went to the police for help. The police brought him to our Home on the afternoon of the next day he was found. Jose’s father is an alcoholic and was physically abusive with Jose and his mother. He has seven siblings and his older sister has not lived with the family for a while. When his mother was interviewed she told the psychologist that Jose was not well behaved and often had an attitude and would not shower. She also said he had been stealing. The mother also said the father was very abusive to Jose and he was better off with us . This year 2014 the courts wanted to give him back to his parents but Jose refused and asked the judge to grant him permission to stay with us and the judge granted us permanent custody praise God!  He is mostly eager to please and is very affectionate. Jose is a very nice boy that helps with everything at home and he interacts well with the other children. He is attending a private school and enjoys learning English and playing soccer and loves to give hugs.

About Rehoboth

Rehoboth Children’s Home is located in the town of Chimaltenango, located 35 miles west of Guatemala City. Rehoboth is home to boys and girls between two and 18 years old.  The name of the home is based on Genesis 26:22. In this passage, Isaac had dug two wells in the new land and those around him quarreled with him, saying it was theirs.  Once he had dug the third well, no one quarreled over it and he  named it Rehoboth, saying, “Now the Lord is given us Room and will flourish in the land.” This means a lot to the children of Rehoboth; it reminds them that though their parents and others have abandoned them, God has made room for them. Guatemala has one of the highest violent crime rates in Latin America; your sponsorship will help this child.
