Jose lives with his father and his mother. His duties at home include running errands. There are 4 children in the family. His father is sometimes employed as a laborer and his mother maintains the home.

For fun, Jose enjoys playing with cars and playing with marbles. He attends church activities and Bible class regularly and is in primary school where his performance is above average.

Please remember Jose in your prayers. Your love and support will help him to receive the assistance he needs to grow and develop.
Jose lives in the mountainous community of San Antonio del Mosco, home to approximately 6,600 residents. Typical houses are constructed of dirt floors, wood walls and tile roofs. The spoken language is Spanish.

The regional diet consists of maize, beans, bread, rice and potatoes. Common health problems in this area include the flu and diarrhea. Most adults in San Antonio del Mosco work as subsistence farmers and earn the equivalent of $96 per month. This community has electricity, drinking water and telephone and internet access but needs libraries, computer centers, employment opportunities, vocational training centers and recreation facilities.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Niños Viviendo Para Cristo Student Center to provide Jose with Bible teaching, hygiene and first aid education, medical checkups, birthday celebrations, field trips, academic reinforcement and nutritious snacks. Forty percent of the children in this project are not attending school because they are underage.
Most Salvadorans live in the country's subtropical central region of valleys and plateaus. A hot coastal plain is in the south and the north is mountainous. Nearly all the land is farmed; coffee is grown in the mountains.

Ninety percent of El Salvador's population is of mixed Indian and Spanish descent; about 60 percent live in urban areas. Although a few Indians have retained many of their old customs and traditions, most people have adopted the Spanish language and culture. Fifty-seven percent of Salvadorans are Catholic but there is extensive activity by Protestant groups and over twenty-one percent are Protestants. Compassion works in the central, southern and western regions of the country.

El Salvador is the smallest and most densely populated country in Central America. Spain claimed the country in 1525. Almost 300 years later, El Salvador declared its independence and, after a brief union with Mexico, joined four other Central American countries to form a federation. When this union ended in 1838, El Salvador became a republic. The country experienced a period of increasing unrest during the 1970s that culminated in a civil war in the 1980s. In 1992, a peace agreement was reached.
