Alberto teaches Math, Bible and Spanish.  He has been teaching at Cornerstone for a number of years.  Alberto feels strongly about the importance of Christian education and is thankful for the ability to teach the students about the Bible and the Reformed faith in particular. 

The majority of the students at Cornerstone are not committed Christians and some quite openly tell Alberto that they don’t believe in all this Bible stuff and they challenge him.  He tells them that he’s not forcing them to believe but they have to learn what he’s teaching them because that is what is required of them while they attend this school.  He tells them that they are entitled to have their own beliefs.  This usually keeps him and the challenging student from getting into heated discussions. 

In the meantime, what he hopes and prays for is that the Lord will work in the students' hearts so that the Bible and its truths begin to change their lives and they come to know God and His saving work in Jesus.  He knows it is not his job to convert the students but that he is just a tool in the work and plans of a Sovereign God.

Pray for teachers like Alberto as they work as instruments of God for the transformation of their students and their communities.  Join in supporting them financially through our Sponsorship Program!  Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of children and families in Belize.
