Ministry News Brief:
Agustin, sadly, left us for the fourth time 10 days ago and although our street team have done all they can to try and encourage him to return to El Camino, it seems that he has decided not to.
Erick who came through our Reception House a week ago and moved into El Camino last weekend, also had two days away from El Camino this week, but thankfully decided to return on Thursday. Please be praying for him to settle in soon.
This last week all the boys and girls from El Camino and El Alfarero were involved in the Bolivian Independence Day celebrations with parades in El Torno, the town closest to the homes. We were proud to see them all parading with their schools and many being recognized for their high achievement in their classes!
Joe from Alaska will be joining us tomorrow (August 9th) on our Year For God program. He will have two weeks of orientation to Operation Restoration before starting his DTS at the end of this month and then volunteering with Operation Restoration from January to July 2016
On Tuesday August 11th we have a team of 7 short term volunteers from York, UK joining the ministry and offering their services for two weeks, mainly working with El Alfarero girls’ home as well as visits to the streets.
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT THROUGH PRAYER, GIVING AND FUNDRAISING, AND DON’T FORGET OUR 25TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS ON 30TH/31ST JULY 2016 HERE IN SANTA CRUZ. PLEASE PLAN ON JOINING US!
