Mid-Week Update!

Hola!

We’ve arrived and we have had a few days to catch up and spend time with the boys at the project. Everyone is doing well except several of the boys have caught colds due to the cooler weather.

However, spirits are high and the youngest boys, Milton, Josue, Wilmer, Angel, Oscar, Michael and Marquitos are keeping us busy running around and playing soccer. Marlon insists we only speak in Spanish so that we learn the language and he has been a huge help! Meanwhile, the older boys are very busy doing their homework each day. And on Monday, Geovanny celebrated his 17th birthday!

The school at  Ninos de la Luz now has grades 1-4 and plan to expand a grade every year. Currently there are two volunteers, JuJu from New Zealand and Elizabeth from Norway, who are helping teach in the classrooms.

Genna and I took photos of all the students at the school that will be added to the blog as soon as possible. Furthermore, we have helped decorate the library and computer room to “bring it to life.” We have also taken many new photos and videos of the boys that we will share with you all soon!

Dios le bendiga!
