Success Story: A Boy With No Name

Untitled design (26)We noticed this little boy off to the side of the road.

Sister Agnes asked his Grandmother,

"What's the boy's name?"

The Grandmother said,

"I don't Know."

We were shocked...so poor that he didn't even have a name!


So, Sister Agnes decided to namePicture4 him "Martin."

At the time,

Martin was sleeping in the trees,

his fingers and toes were affected with chiggers,

and he was in no condition

to go to boarding school right away...

Martin's 1st step was to go to day school.

Here you see him getting his first uniform!

In a short time,

he began to heal and adapt,

and then we could send him

to a boarding school.

His sponsor family was overjoyed whenUntitled design (24)

they received Martin's first written letter. 

And although it wasn't easy for him,

Martin's first report card made them very proud. 

Most of all, they were happy

Martin was finally in a safe place.

These are the dormitories at the Boy's school.Picture8

Remember, this is a very prestigious school!

And now, Martin continues to grow

strong and upright,

thanks to the education, food, lodging,

and love that he has been given

through a CARITAS sponsorship.

Untitled design (25)Although children are not required to be or become Catholic,

they are taught the faith.

This is Martin’s first Communion Picture.

It's amazing! We are not able to help every child, but

by helping one child be educated,

we are helping his/her village,

country, and family for generations to come!

 

Please pray that, one child at a time,Martin Age 16 with Fr. Frank (1)

we continue to transform these villages.
