Leonardo: Eighth Grade

Originally posted January 12, 2016



Name: Leonardo

Age: 13

Grade: Eighth

Oscar and Alba have been the house parents at Breaking Chains for just one year, but we already don’t know how we ever survived without them. Their care and love for our BC teens combined with the godly discipline and structure they provide has been invaluable over the past year.

Oscar and Alba have four children. The older three are grown and out of the house, and their son Leonardo is 13 years old. We value Oscar and Alba and the way they work so hard to serve Breaking Chains and provide for their family, so we are continually seeking ways to make sure we serve them also. One way we would like to do that this year is by sponsoring their son Leonardo’s education. Oscar and Alba have fought and struggled in the past to make sure their family has what it needs, and covering the cost of Leonardo’s education would allow them to save more and give them more peace.

Leonardo came with us this year on our Beach Christmas trip and was an absolute joy to have around. He interacted easily with our BC teenagers, was respectful of his parents, and was gracious to everyone around. Leonardo will be in ninth grade next year, which is an incredible accomplishment in Honduras. Our plan is to place him in Santa Monica, a private school which many of our BC kids attend. Leonardo has already demonstrated great discipline and hard work by making it this far in his education, and we hope to be able to help him continue along that road.

Please consider sponsoring Leonardo’s school costs!
