Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given.
It is the last month of the year and we are in a very special time in which we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. It is a time to thank God for all his goodness throughout the year. It is an opportunity to make amends, to love, to remember, to thank, to celebrate, to rejoice, in the birth of that lamb that takes away the sin of the world.
God has been good in everything we have done. The students of the La Fuente program are now on vacation and we are very happy with the results achieved. They all strived to achieve the best results in their studies. We are proud of our students and happy to have collaborated by providing the necessary tools so that they could receive tutoring and homework material to improve their grades in school. In the last week of November, we also had our camp and closing of the program for this year 2022. We shared prizes and fun times with all the students, but most of all we shared God's love and salvation for all.

THE ESCALANTE FAMILY
After a long wait in the process, the Escalante Family has finally become US Permanent Residents. Tony, Claudia, Diego, and Raquel are living with family in beautiful (but very cold for now) Colorado Springs, CO. for at least 6 months before they can come back to the Site, they are going through a kind of Home Assignment period and will be applying for a re-entry permit with the US Immigration Services to be able to go back to El Salvador for a while with the permission of the US government. Please pray for the kids to adjust well to preschool in the US and learn English. Please also pray for Tony and Claudia to become full English speakers and for the language not to be a barrier at all. Please pray for God to work amid the process of asking for this re-entry permit.
PD: Tony’s new phone number in the US is (719)284-1058, this number is for calling only. If you want to reach out to him through message, FaceTime, Whatsapp, or Telegram please use his Salvadoran number +(503)7877-6987.

* For the interns and resident that will be with us this year 2023. Sam (Resident), Nick and Elijah (Interns)
