Alex is...

Alex is the oldest son of a single mother living two blocks from the church. He is eight years old and his little brother is two. After his mother was abandoned pregnant with Alex's little brother Alex also began to struggle more with school. It doesn't help that she is illiterate, a single mother, and can't find a steady job. Alex has to repeat this year in school again.

Our hope and prayer is that we can find a sponsor for Alex and his little brother. If anyone would like to support Alex and his family by fully or partially adopting them please send your donation to the address above with an attached note saying "Ridenour Project - Tacna, Peru (Alex)".

Let us know if you need any more information. The cost per child per month is $14. Per child per year is $140. If you would like to sponsor the family it is double the donation, $28 a month and $280 for the year.

Ruben is...

Ruben is 8 years old and lives with his sister and recently single mom. He is very loving and grown on the hearts of many of the tio's here. His mom spoke with me a couple weeks ago about the possibility of lowering the costs of Nuestras Semillas to make it possible for both her children to attend. She loves the idea of the program helping her and her children out, but now she is alone and even though the $14 a month per child is very cheap, it is also very difficult without a regular income.

If anyone would like to support Ruben's family or any other family by fully or partially adopting them for a month(s) or year please send your donation to the address above with an attached not saying "Ridenour Project - Tacna, Peru (Ruben)".

Let us know if you would want anymore information. The cost per child per month is $14. per child per year is $140. If you would like to sponsor the family it is double the donation, $28 a month and $280 for the year.

Nuestras Semillas

Our children's program is almost here! For those of you who don't know much about it, we will be opening up a children's learning program joined with the feeding program to help families in the neighborhood. Children will come for lunch and stay all afternoon doing their homework, learning different crafts and trades, playing sports, etc until 7pm while their parents can be at work all day and not worry about their children. Then when they get home they can spend quality time with their children and not just help them with their homework and then everyone goes to bed.

So many families have told us how much they want and need this in order to work and not have to take care of their children all day. We are praying that many will come to know Christ through the program and that their children can flourish with the hours a day of investment in their lives.

Please pray with us for Tacna. Thank you all who have helped make this possible.
