about

“Why do you not have dreams, Kristal?” Rodrigo asked.

“Because dreams are for people who already have food.”

In the remote hills of Guatemala, hope is not a familiar word. Rodrigo, Kristal, and Javier live in a one-room shanty with dirt floors, bamboo walls, and a rusty tin roof that leaks.  At twelve, Rodrigo dreams of going to school but must work in the fields every day to help the family make a meager living.  By striking a deal with his sick Mama, Rodrigo goes to school but when tragedy strikes the family, Rodrigo's dreams are suddenly shattered.

Meanwhile, a mission team from the US travels to Guatemala to build houses.  Next door to their shanty, Rodrigo, Kristal, and Javier watch as volunteers deliver hope to another family.  Find out how a realist, a pessimist, a negotiator, and a missionary rediscover hope in the remote hills of Guatemala.

A percentage of the book’s profits are donated toward Casas por Cristo, an organization that helps meet the physical and spiritual needs of our neighbors through volunteer teams in Guatemala, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic.
