Colegio Esperanza….needs at the school

   Those of you who have visited or read about Colegio Esperanza know that it is a huge blessing to the dump community of La Chureca.  We have around 300 students who recieve their full education, two meals a day and lots of extracurricular activity all for free.  It is a place of much hope for the kids and a place where God moves greatly in the lives of the children of La Chureca.

   We will have many visitors this summer, so we wanted to share some needs of the school.  If any of you will be visiting and want to bring them down or would like to help buy these items, here is the list that we got yesterday from Sheyla Marenco who is our school director.  Thank you in advanced!

  1. Hey everyone! Pastor Russell here from Cape Charles, VA. Norman, I need your email address again to help me stay in touch with Johan Garcia. I have sent a couple of letters to him through Chacia but I think working through you would be a faster way of getting them to him. I so hope he is doing well and tell him I have been trying to get to him by mail. Thanks everyone and anyone who can help me with this.
