An excerpt from Do You Believe…In Promises?
By Tracy Dubois, Support Staff
Te veo en la universidad! This promise, meaning see you at the university!, is shared with students at Amor, Fe, y Esperanza (Love, Faith, Hope) in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The school, which began in the city garbage dump in 2001, has expanded to four buildings and teaches 130 students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. In fact, AFE will hold its first graduation on December 10.
“God has made me a better person,” Merlyn shared. “Before AFE, I didn’t go to church and life was hard. I used to be angry and get into trouble. Since being at AFE and going to church, I am more understanding and my view of life is different.”
Congratulations to Yuri, Gaby, Mariela, Rene, Mirna, Mayra, Karla, Griselda, and Merlyn!
A grant of $5,000 will pay for a student’s tuition, books, transportation, food, and housing for one year. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to help an AFE graduate rise above the odds and bear witness to God’s promises!
