Miguel from the Dominican Republic

Miguel* came to Casa Monte Plata years ago after his life fell apart. His mother died and his father, who struggled with substance abuse, was unable to care for or provide for him. In those dark days, he felt like there was no hope. But our great God stepped in! From the moment he entered our programme, Miguel was loved and nurtured holistically. He was given physical safety, healthy food, and quality academic instruction while also learning about the love of God.

 What a joy to see him grow in gratefulness to God, instead of giving into bitterness for the trauma of his past. Last year, Miguel graduated from high school, moved into a transition house, and took

a year-long English course where he studied for four hours every day. He recently accepted a full-time job with Casa Monte Plata, working in maintenance, general support, and transportation. It has always been his dream to study law and he hopes to start university soon. We feel privileged to watch Miguel grow, thrive, and succeed, and we know God will do great things through this young man!
