One of the greatest joys for our field staff is seeing the young people that came to our Children’s Homes – all from such desperate circumstances – grow up to live successful lives! This week, Jeff VanDerMolen, our Vice President of Operations for Latin America, shared this story:
“Walkiris came into the Ark when she was just a young girl following the death of both parents. It has given us a lot of joy to see her grow up and she is now one of our university scholarship students! Today she was married to Miguel in the civil wedding – which is the legal ceremony in the DR – and this will be followed by a church celebration in April. It is good to see their love for each other and their growing relationship with the Lord.
Be encouraged that, by supporting Kids Alive, you are part of changing lives! We have a large number of kids who are becoming amazing young adults. Walkiris is one of these. Thank you for all you do!”
