The Aragons have been actively involved in evangelism and visitation work for ChildCARE Plus (CCP) since January 1997. The program is presently benefiting 15 communities in Guatemala, each with a school and a local church, and with a total enrolment of more than 3,500 children. Hector works with the local pastor, visiting the parents of sponsored children, encouraging them to receive Christ, attend church and to continue sending their kids to school.

They work with the William Cornelius Vocational Training Centre (WCVTC), which provides education in technical studies to CCP graduates.

They are continually taking short term missions teams from Canada to do ministry on the streets, in public schools and in hospitals. They also take Canadian task force teams on any building projects needed on the WCVTC, or to help fix or remodel ChildCARE Plus schools. They also help to lead these teams on work done on new edifices for developing local assemblies. Hector also engages in teaching and preaching in churches and gatherings of pastors and evangelists.

Ministry goals:

  • Translate, print and promote a Sunday School Certificate Program.
  • Train pastors and their leaders with a discipleship program.
  • Help the CCP schools close the three-year gap for preparing students for the William Cornelius Vocational School.
  • Promote the need for more child sponsors.

Medical care is all but unavailable to hundreds of poor families in Guatemala. Minor injuries or illnesses can quickly become life-threatening. Pray for local and international ministries seeking to help meet pressing needs like infant mortality and malnutrition, which are among the highest in the region.
