Today, a letter from CO-607, which is located in Colombia. My young man, Ronaldo, attends this project.
From my heart, I hope you and your family are enjoying the wonderful blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
This is Edmundo Castellon, pastor of Dios con Nosotros Church, which is located in the town of Sincelejo in Colombia. We are ministering to Ronaldo at the Child Development Center.

We see the children's interest in following the Lord and helping their families. I am very grateful to you for praying for us and for supporting the development of Ronaldo. For us as a church, the work we are doing for the children and young people is a great challenge and at the same time, a dream.
The community sometimes fails to hear the message of our Lord because it seems that they are interested in other things. There are dysfunctional families due to the conflict at home and with society. Our responsibility is to show God's love in a context of unconditional love. We are very motivated to continue with our Lord Jesus Christ's work entrusted to us, bringing the message of love and salvation to all children and parents in our community. Every day we see the Lord's blessings and support in the work we do with these children. Seeing the children's smiles and young people's effort increases our faith and we know that our work is not in vain. We can see many children and parents coming to the Lord's feet, and I know we will continue to see more families being released from that spiritual poverty in which the world has been submerged.
Thanks to the efforts of the church, right now we have a children's restaurant which feeds 50 children in the community. Parents and children are being blessed through these foods. I know this is a great tool to bring hope to the community.
It is thanks to sponsors that children smile, through the letters, photos, cards, and gifts that are sent to them. I am glad to see children's smiles and their satisfaction when they get letters or when they are going to write letters to their sponsors. Children want to know their sponsors and they are happier knowing that people far away love them and are praying for them.
Thank you very much for everything that you do for Ronaldo. Thank you for praying for our children and for our church so that the Lord gives us more faith and the strength we need for this work with children every day. Our church is praying for you and your family so that the Lord fills you with love and passion for the lost, for those people who need to hear the message of hope and salvation that the Lord Jesus gives us.
