There are several ways you can give to the amazing work God is doing in the hearts of the children at Casa de mi Padre!

  1. PRAYER. Y’all. I need so much prayer! I know that God is so sovereign, but I am imperfect and incapable of pulling this off on my own. Please pray that the Lord continues to provide the funds for me to live here, and also the strength and wisdom needed to do my job well.
  2. RESOURCES. I am in need of some counseling resources. If you know (or are) a christian counselor, I’d love to learn from you, and get some educational recommendations!
  3. DONATIONS. It will cost about $1,165/month for me to live in Guatemala. I’m also in need of an additional $5,000 to purchase a mode of transportation. I’m currently renting a four-wheeler from Casa de mi Padre, but I need a vehicle to transport children with and sometimes drive to Guatemala City as needed (4 hours away). I am confident that God will provide, because He makes a way for His glory to be made known!! I am raising support through Midland Ministries, and there are three ways to donate:
    1. ONE-TIME: You can mail a check written to “Child Rescue” with “33-Alexis Putthoff” in the memo to:
      Midland Ministries
      Attn: Child Rescue
      709 E. Hyde Park Ave.
      Saint Joseph, MO 64504
    2. MONTHLY: Contact your bank to set up a monthly recurring check with the same info above. Many banks have this feature online, so it’s pretty easy to set up and hassle free after the first check!
    3.  You can also go to this link:, and click “Alex Putthoff” under “Staff Member”.P.S. All monetary gifts are tax deductible through this organization

For questions, comments, or just to chat more about this new journey of mine, you can email me at I’d love to connect with you or meet for a cup of coffee when I’m in the USA!

Thank you!!
