Pastor Abel Molina Gonzales is changing Huayllani as he serves the children in Jesus’ name. This church oversees a Compassion child development program and is looking to partner with a church in the U.S.

  • Compassion-sponsored children are given regular dental and medical check-ups and benefit from the center’s nutrition program. 
  •  Activities at Asambleas de Dios Esmeralda Student Center include: academic support, first aid courses, soccer and other sports games, special celebrations, and youth camps. 
  • Preschool classes are available for non-school children and parents are encouraged to participate and engage in their children’s activities.
    Benefits of Compassion programs:
  • In an area with many broken families, the Gospel is shining a light of hope.
  • Children receive consistent educational help and they are infused with the truth that they are loved and have purpose.
