for the job because of his great grades and his ability to speak both Spanish and the local indigenous language, Quiche. Cesar will be moving and starting his new job in January and will be able to continue studying on the weekends. While its hard to see him go, this is exactly why Casa Shalom exists. Cesar is leaving here as a Christian young man who is educated and who has the possibility of changing this country. This is why you donate, this is why you pray and this is why we do what we do! Vaya con Dios Cesar.

Meet our Child of the Week, Enma! Enma has lived at Casa Shalom since she was a little girl, when she was removed from her mother’s house due to the abuse of her brother, who no longer lives at the orphanage. Enma has grown into a smart, funny young lady and she’s quick to make new friends. Enma is currently in her final year of high school. In Guatemala, high school students must choose a specialty to focus on, and Enma has chosen physical education. She hopes to one day be a physical education teacher.
