Meet Casa Shalom's newest child, Carlos, age nine. After Carlos was orphaned, some friends of his parents took him in and began abusing him and denying him food and the chance to attend school. To feed himself, Carlos tried to steal some plantains from a nearby store and was caught by the store owner and burned with hot metal. We are so glad to have the chance to care for Carlos and to help him heal physically, mentally and spiritually. Please pray for Carlos as he transitions into life at Casa Shalom!
