God has been faithful in all the years of ministry at Niños de la Luz and to say we are grateful is an understatement. To see even one life changed for the better, to see one heart leaning toward God, to witness young boys accepting Jesus and growing with him, and to see our Lord and Savior glorified is such a privilege.
So as you read Wilton's experience at Niños de la Luz, we hope you'll see what God has done. Where there was no hope, there is now life and beauty. Where there was once pain and suffering, there is a life lived to the fullest. Once there was loneliness, there is now family, friendship, and love.
"My name is Wilton, my time at Niños de la luz has been a learning experience, and I've learned something new from my mistakes.
At first, I wondered, why am I here? Where is my family? Why am I not with my family? Although I still don't understand, I'm sure that God will help me understand one day.
I'm glad that there are people besides my family who care about me. I thank God because I have a home, a school, three meals a day, a room, good clothes and shoes, and good teachers. I'm also grateful because I have good friends.
I have learned that a good friend tells you the truth, even when it hurts, that God loves us and has a purpose for our lives, that even if our parents abandon us, the Lord will protect us and that everything happens for a reason."
