This month I want to introduce you to one of our amazing young men, Olvin Ramirez. He is 18, loves physics and sports, and hopes someday to learn to play the trumpet. He will graduate from our high school in June with close to a 4.0 GPA. I am teaching the Senior Ethics class this year. Olvin is my best student. He excels in math, science, writing, anything he puts his hand to. He is serious about his education and because of his character, his potential for success is out of the park. His English is one of the best. He has impeccable integrity, is extremely responsible, loves God, and the fruit of the Holy Spirit evident in him shows me that he is who he portrays himself to be to the world. Currently, he does not have a sponsor to study at a University in the US. If God does not provide one, we will enroll him in the University here in the fall. However, if anyone deserves a chance at a U.S. education, it is Olvin. If you or someone you know would be able to help us with this, please let me know. Please pray with us that God will provide this opportunity for Olvin. Please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org

- Clothes & Shoes: Our children have the same basic needs—socks, underwear, shirts, etc., all of which are in desperate need of being replaced: $10,500
- Christmas: Will you begin praying and consider sponsoring our children’s Christmas? It takes $100 per child or $10,500 for them all!
Welcome Yolany—This month we welcomed a new friend, Yolany Garcia. She is a graduate of The Leadership Center, a wonderful business education opportunity in Honduras, where students learn English, computers, and how to create business plans. After graduation, mentors from the U.S. provide funds for them to start a business and follow it for five years to help it be successful. Yolany has started a farming business in her hometown, hiring her brother to manage it, so she can help our school as a teacher next year. In the meantime, she is volunteering at our school and village wherever we need her. Welcome aboard, Yolany, and thank you, Leadership Center, for the work you do for this country.
