This is Salvador, and he is now sponsored by Eric and Roxanne Schweitzer from Colorado Springs. Salvador reminds me a lot of my son, very athletic and full of energy.

This is Franciso, and he is now sponsored by Brett and Nicole Irwin. Franciso is 21 years old, and he has lived at Nuevo Reto almost all of his life. Orphans in Guatemala do not “age out,” and Jacob (the director) assists the young men in getting an education, learning a trade and preparing to live on their own. Franciso serves as a de facto assistant director at Nuevo Reto because he has taken it upon himself to help all of the other orphans.

This guy is so friendly, and I was surprised that his English is so strong. He hung out with me as I went around Fond Blanc taking photos. One of the things I’ve still got to arrange is send him books in English. He and his classmates scramble to find books in English to help them practice reading and speaking English better.
