Santos & José are brothers that Yuli and I got to know in Casa Shalom. Their grandparents won custody of them this past year, and so in October they returned to live with them. They don’t have much money, but they’re so happy to be home. Fortunately for us, they live on the outskirts of Chimaltenango, which is the same town where we live.
We’ve gotten to visit them a bunch, and it’s great to see them so content to be with their family. But we also saw that money was really tight. They we’re looking to get them enrolled in a nearby school, but education is expensive here. As we mentioned in our previous newsletter, we decided to help out and pay for their schooling.
We enrolled them in a nearby middle school, where Santos is in 8th grade and José is in 7th grade. Here’s a picture of them one day after class. It’s been so much fun for us to stay connected with them and continue to build a relationship. They also now join us for church every Sunday, and we’re just so happy to be involved in their lives. We would appreciate your prayers as we continue to work with Santos and José.
We would also appreciate your prayers as we continue to meet with other kids who have many needs.
