Dear Sponsor, My name is José Carlos Prem, and I have been the Country Director of Compassion Guatemala for nine years. I am a chemical engineer and I also graduated from the Central American Theological Seminary. Compassion started working in Guatemala due to a terrible earthquake in 1976 and it was officially registered in 1989. We currently have 218 local church partners that are helping us release more than 57,700 children from poverty in Jesus’ name. I want to express how very grateful I am for your thoughtful sensitivity in ministering to the children of Guatemala.open_in_new Read full letter
