Melvin: Our shy, sweet boy

The first time most people see Melvin, he has probably already seen you; hidden somewhere, behind a wall or around a corner, cautiously watching those around him. It may take some time, but once you break through to him, you’ll find an incredibly sweet boy. When I first met Melvin he was a shy toddler who wouldn’t say a word to me. Now, every Sunday he is one of the first to run up to me to steal my hat, running away from me and laughing with all of his friends.

Watching Melvin make this transformation has been one of the biggest things drawing me to continue working in Honduras, and I am excited to see how he continues to grow and let God’s love mold him.

Please continue to pray with us that Melvin continues to grow emotionally, spiritually, and academically.

Will you consider sponsoring Melvin for Beach Christmas this year?!
