Denis is a HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATE!!! Denis has been a part of our family at Casa Robles for most of his life. He has accomplished something so amazing in graduating from high school. He is breaking generational chains, he is doing something no one in his family has done, he is doing something none of our boys at Casa Robles has ever done…Denis we are so so proud of you!!!

He graduated from Colegio Bautista de Managua. This is a prestigious school that has been operating in Nicaragua for over 100 years. As you can see in his pictures, his promotion ceremony was held in the Ruben Dario National Performing Arts Center…it was beautiful, and none of us complained that it was air conditioned. It was an invite only event and the graduates were all very excited…watching them throw their caps was soooooo awesome! (But I forgot to take a picture…dang!)

Mama Angelica and Papa Yuri escorted Denis across the stage, and honestly it was pretty emotional for us as they walked together. There was the beautiful moment where Mama Angelica followed the tradition of putting Denis’ graduation ring on his finger. It was beautiful to watch Papa Yuri standing there proudly looking at his son in his cap a gown as a graduate. And of course we brought some levity to the event but jumping up and down and shouting Denis’ name! We are just so very proud of Denis. Jesus has been so amazing in rescuing him and changing his life, and in these last two years Denis has made decisions in his own life to draw closer to God and really embrace the future he has walking with the Lord.

Some great adventures await. Denis is actually just now turning 17 years old. This coming year he will enroll at the Nicaraguan Technical University and pursue a degree in Engineering…following in his Papa Yuri’s footsteps. The University is located in Managua so he will keep living with our Casa Robles family and learning that new life rhythm of being a university student. Please pray for Denis as these vacations days come to an end and he starts this next adventure in his life. Papa Yuri and Mama Angelica will be there with him every step of the way…and we will too!
