As I previously announced, my wife and I are heading to Venezuela this summer as a part of a mission team assisting Project Jonas, a home for troubled boys in Barquisimeto, Venezuela. Most of the boys chose to enter the home after living on the street and running into all sorts of street life trouble. They range from age 7 to age 16. The workers in the home give the boys a disciplined life style, provide positive role models, and are actively helping them reshape their lives.
While there, we will be working on renovations on the home that they all live in and working with the leaders in the home as well as the boys.
We covet your prayers for the team going down, the leadership of the home, and for the boys themselves.
