Little smiles

Boys will be boys! Little Cesar, Santiago and Victor clown around and enjoy some free time together. Cesar and Santiago are in first grade and Victor is in second - the boys are all part of the Luceros house and are looking forward to a week-long break they'll have from school very soon.

Candelaria and Magdalena

Twins Candelaria and Magdalena play peek-a-boo from behind a bench on the babies' playground. The little girls are the youngest of a group of 8 siblings that is now thriving at Casa Shalom. The kids came from extreme poverty and near starvation, but are now happy, healthy and progressing! Please keep these precious little ones, and all the children of Casa Shalom, in your prayers.
