Name: Mirna Raxon

Date of Birth:

Gender: Female


Grade: 1st

Mirna is eleven years old and was abandoned by her birth mother and another couple was raising her and decided they couldn't do it any longer. They brought her to us and through the courts and we have temporary custody.

Mirna is very sweet, she never attended school before but this year she is attending school just to get ready to start first grade next year. She needs a lot of attention all the time because she felt really rejected because she knows that her mother left her and also the couple that were taking care of her. She has malnutrition problems but we are providing her everything to improve her health. Please keep Mirna in your prayers; we know that God can heal her heart.

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.
