Guatemala is a country that covers an area about the size of the state of Tennessee. It is a mountainous country with fertile coastal plains. Guatemala is home to over 14 million people, and the majority of the people speak Spanish as their primary language. More than half of the Guatemalan people are descendants of the indigenous Mayans. The majority of the population lives in rural communities rather than in urban settings. The weather in Guatemala is fairly mild. It is warm due to it’s location in the tropics. However, due to the higher elevation of Antigua, the temperatures are typically in the 70s during the day and dropping to the low 60s at night.
The vision of Casa Angelina is found in James 1:27 – to rescue orphans. Casa Angelina is a higher-education orphanage where they educate the children in three ways – scholastically, socially, and spiritually. On the complex of Casa Angelina, youʼll find homes, house parents, and children living in a family environment. They also have a school, feeding center, and medical clinic on-site.
