We love supporting good ministries! The ministry of Ken and Maria Biron are among the best ministries that we are aware of.
Latin American Children’s Fund (LACF) was established as a not-for-profit organization in 1991 with the sole purpose of leading Latin America children and their families to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Through this child-sponsorship program, churches, individuals, and foundations in the United States are providing financial support for the Christian education and spiritual training of impoverished children in Peru.
American Ken Biron, and his Peruvian wife, Maria, worked in the capital city of Lima for a number of years. In 1996, the Birons responded to God’s call to establish a Christian school in Reque, Peru, a small coastal town approximately 500 miles north of Lima. Five acres of barren, desert-like land were acquired and construction of the school began. Short-term mission teams (known as workcamps) from churches, organizations, and schools in the United States are building the school one classroom at a time. The needs often exceed the resources, but God’s faithfulness is always near.
The school is named in honor of Roma Lee Courvisier, a missionary to Peru and other Central and South American countries who has inspired many to enter the mission fields.
Children are admitted to the RLC School at age three and progress through the preschool, elementary, and high school levels. The goal is to add 20-30 new students each year. Teachers have a deep love for El Señor (The Lord) that they share with the children along with academic instruction.
The Roma Lee Courvisier School provides the Christian education these children need to walk out of the world of poverty, malnutrition, unemployment and spiritual darkness. LACF is helping them realize their full potential and empowering them to become tomorrow’s leaders for the world and for God’s Kingdom.
