About Keith Britton

Keith works with children at risk and very poor families in two barrios near San Jose. He’s also the Director at a men’s recovery center, 1 hour from San Jose. He has an average of 12 addicts living at the center for 6 months, mostly learning how in Faith, God can take there addiction away.. for ever. He also helps run  a children’s feeding center in Los Guizaros, near San Jose. He helps feed from 30 to 80 children lunch 6 days a week and helps with Bible Studies every Saturday. Keith’s mission supplies a lot of the food the children receive, fore 20% of the children, this is there main meal each day. Before God sent Keith, the children were sitting on the floor. God provided funds for him to build seven sturdy 10 ft. long benches and expanded the feeding program from 3 days to 6 days a week. Keith’s ministry also helps with maintenance and construction and other necessities as funds are available.

In the past 7 years, Keith has helped families in Los Guido by repairing their homes, helping with food , medicine for flu or other normal aches a pains and clothes and shoes when available. He is able to witness and fellowship with the families as he repairs the shacks, (more like your great grandfathers tool shed) that they lived in with no flooring, usually two room maybe two beds, no sanitary facilities, accept what runs down hill, small sink with water and one light. These shacks have tin siding and roofs, ( a lot of holes). He has repaired or replaced roofs, bathrooms,  wood or cement flooring and facilitated the building of over 380 stairs up two hilly walkways for the community and a bridge which provides safe passage all year, while always witnessing and praising God to all that will listen.

In 2010 the Government closed this area and moved most of the people in to a new government housing project close by. Keith continues to help the families by supplying over 150 children with all there school needs every Feb approx $135.00 per child. He has no money but God provides through your help, and still helps with food and medical as needed.

“Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven … and whoever receives one such child in My name receives me.”

Matthew 18: 3,5
