BUILD THE FAITH INC creation was inspired by the faith in God of Christina Dangond Lacouture, who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer on December 12, 2012 at the age of 6 years. During her long fight against cancer, Christina gave us a beautiful testimony of strength, courage and an unbreakable faith in God. She taught us that it is indeed possible to live through the most difficult situations in life with a beautiful smile and a profound confidence in Jesus, always saying “Jesus I trust in you.”
BUILD THE FAITH INC started first by organizing weekly rosary gatherings to give thanks to God and our blessed Mother Mary for Christina’s life. With time the group started to make rosaries to collect donations to help build Catholic churches in areas of economic distress or in need for financial resources. The faith and trust in God started to grow among the volunteers and inspired Christina’s parents to create in 2016 our non profit BUILD THE FAITH INC in Christina’s honor.
We believe it is possible to confront the difficult moments in life with the peace, love and strength that are derived from an unbreakable faith in God. In Christina’s memory, we continue the mission of charity and love for our neighbor inspired by Jesus Christ.
