HOW THE SEEDS WERE PLANTED:

During the 1980's, Ken Biron spent his vacation time making short-term mission trips to Peru. He felt a Christian responsibility to make a difference in the lives of the children he met there and to bring them the Good News of Jesus Christ. In 1990, he felt God’s call to leave his home in St. Louis, Missouri, and move to Peru to help children in need on a full-time basis. The seeds of Latin American Children’s Fund had been planted. In 1991, a child sponsorship program in the poorest districts around the capital city of Lima began. Churches and individuals in the United States sponsored impoverished children and enabled them to go to school and improve their future.
Over the years, Roma Lee has ministered to many people in many countries. She has planted many seeds. Her hands have not been idle, nurturing seeds to further the gospel.” This quote, by Dr. John Doty, is from the book, One at a Time, by Bonnie Newell about the life of Roma Lee Courvisier. The book tells the amazing story of what one little girl from the cotton fields of Texas, by following God’s voice, could accomplish, feeding and nourishing thousands of hungry people, both physically and spiritually. And one of those seeds that Roma Lee planted was in the heart of Ken Biron. It was on a mission trip with Roma Lee to Peru that Ken felt the call of God to minister to the people there. He began Latin American Children’s Fund, a sponsoring program for impoverished children in Lima. He then planted a school which is truly an oasis in the desert! Against all odds, Ken, with your selfless, generous help, has sown more seeds of the Gospel by feeding and educating hundreds of children in Lima and Reque, Peru. God has truly made the desert to bloom!
