Missionary Spotlight: Br. Raúl Mejia, ST

Life in Guamal is bleak. Many live in fragile hovels, trying their best to live off the land through small-scale farming, fishing and odd jobs here and there. There are very few opportunities in Guamal, which lead many young people to turn to lives of crime just to get by.

One big problem in Guamal is lack of clean drinking water. Br. Raul has made it his mission to solve this issue. Recently, he completed a water filtration system for the people of Guamal. His work has immediately benefitted more than 50 local families.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, Br. Raul has been able to bring clean water to even more families. He hopes, with your help, to continue to expand the program throughout the region.

Br. Raul serves one of our poorest missions, in Guamal, Colombia. His primary focus is to bring systemic change to the communities he serves.

“I want to change lives and help the vulnerable know that they are loved and can make a difference in the world,” says Br. Raul.
