Layo and Santiago come to Casa Shalom

Last week, two new children came to Casa Shalom from the town of Alotenango. Brothers Layo (pronounced Lie-oh) and Santiago were removed from the home of their alcoholic and abusive parents by social services this morning. Social workers report that the family's home was constructed entirely of cardboard with a dirt floor and was in the worst condition they'd ever seen. The boys are malnourished and have only ever worked instead of attending school. They will start school this week! The boys have already said that they don't believe in Jesus and that their parents have taught them that God doesn't exist. We are thankful that we have the chance to minister to these precious boys and we are praying that He reveals Himself to them in a powerful way!
