Arcelia is a part of our junior high after school program with her twin Arleth. Her younger siblings Esmeralda, Sofia and Isaias all attend the daycare. Her favorite subject in school is math. Arcelia is a smiley, sweet girl who loves to play. Despite escaping her abusive father with her mother and three sisters, she still has a smile that lights up a room. Her mother finally found the courage to leave their dangerous situation, and Arcelia and her siblings were forced to move from southern Mexico to La Mision to escape their abusive father. They came to the only family they have, Maricela, our cook in La Mision. Eight years ago, it was Maricela who came to us with a very similar story, and she naturally turned to us to offer the same love and help for her sister. Arcelia’s mom gave her life to Jesus after arriving in La Mision and faithfully volunteers and attends a local church. Now, Arcelia and her siblings are being raised in a godly home and safe in our care during the day while their mom works. Please pray that this family will continue faithfully following Jesus!
