     01- D. Oliveira, boy, Boy, Age 10 (Sponsored)


    D & G are siblings from here in Entre Rios and have been here since November of 2015. They come from an abusive and dysfunctional family and have been exposed to lots of very negative language and activities in their lives. Their mother has had 5 children, and all but one have been taken from her due to neglect. Their father is in prison for abusing his own child. G & D have been freed for adoption. When D arrived at CLM, his behavior was very inappropriate at home and at school, requiring him to be very closely supervised. Thankfully, that is slowly changing as he comes to understand that he is loved and valued. D is in 4th grade and has significant learning disabilities, specifically difficulty with memory. He has great difficultly retaining what he has learned. He receives special help at school and at home but continues to struggle. D is great at Legos! He can follow the picture instructions from beginning to the end and is so proud of his accomplishment. D is shy but comical at the same time. May God’s will be done in D’s life and that if that includes adoption, may God prepare him for that. May D and his sister be adopted together by a couple who will understand their needs and be instruments in their continued healing. Pray for D's continued growth and development and for healing of his deep woundedness. Pray that he would understand the deep love of Jesus for him. (Updated February 2020)

     02 - E. Correa, Boy, Age 16 (Sponsored)


    E came to CLM in November 2015, along with his older sister and brother. The sister only stayed a month before running away, and she was not brought back to CLM. His brother stayed at CLM till age 19 and left with a steady job and prospects of marriage. The boys had been through a lot before coming to CLM, often having to leave the house and sleep on the streets to escape the violence of their alcoholic father. Their mother left their father and does not seems to have much interest in the boys. They came from a rural area and adapted well at CLM. They had already learned to enjoy hard work on a farm. E is in the 8th grade and could be a very good student. He is working to apply himself more in school, although he tends to be the class clown. E committed his life to the Lord at a young age and has had very real experiences with the Lord. He has a sensitive heart and has an exceptional ability to understand the Word of God for his age and was baptized at the age of 12. He can be extremely polite and well behaved. He enjoys sports, riding bike, swimming, playing the guitar, watching movies, playing chess, fishing, hunting, and lots of other things. Please pray that he will continue to seek the Lord with all his heart and that the teenage years and pressures at school will not be able to sway his resolve to do what pleases the Lord.

    03 – G. Silva, Boy, Age 12

    G came to CLM in March of 2019, about month after his older siblings S and A arrived. They were all transferred from the government home because the two older siblings were constantly running away. Unfortunately, S and A also ran away from CLM after a few months. G is a very responsible and respectful young man most of the time. He does well in school and had the highest grades of all the boys at CLM during the 2019 school year. He also plays indoor soccer. Please pray that he will come to know and love Jesus Christ during his time at CLM (Updated February 2020)

    04–G. Marçal, Boy, Age 15

    G and his older brother Wi had spent time at CLM Turvo and Entre Rios several years ago and returned to CLM in May 2018. They first went to CLM Turvo as very young boys. They left there to return to their mother, but that lasted only a week due to her involvement in a neighborhood fight that almost cost G’s life in a house fire. They were returned to CLM and spent several more years between CLM Turvo and Entre Rios. Then they left to live with their father. That lasted a little bit longer until he ended up in prison for sexual abuse and the pregnancy of a teenage girl. After that, they were sent to the government group homes where they spent several years, until they were transferred back to CLM in May. G is tall and strong and can be a good helper around the CLM farm. When he arrived at CLM, he had serious difficulties with self-control and obedience. He has shown much growth in trusting the adults and obeying most of the time. He is still somewhat immature for his age and tends to like to play with the younger kids. G is in the 7th grade. Over the last year, he has improved his behavior and grades at school. Please pray for G that the Lord could break through the traumas and rejection and help him (and us) to understand who he is and his strengths and talents. Pray that he would learn to know the love of God deeply and fully commit his life to Him. (Updated February 2020)

     05 - G. Oliveira, Girl, Age 11 (Sponsored)


    G and D are siblings from here in Entre Rios and have been here since November of 2015. They come from an abusive and dysfunctional family and have been exposed to lots of very negative language and activities in their lives. Their mother has had 5 children, but all but one have been taken from her due to neglect. Their father is in prison for abusing his own child. G and D are now free for adoption. When G arrived at CLM, her trauma was evident in her behavior through verbal and physical aggression. Sometimes she would shut herself off from others and refuse to interact. She had a very selfish spirit, had to be first, get the best and the most, and was envious of anything others had. She would sometimes destroy what someone else had, in an attitude of “If I can’t have it, you won’t either”. Thankfully, G has made good progress in response to love and limits at CLM. The envy and selfishness have greatly decreased to the point of often being sensitive to the needs of others, and she is usually happy and cooperative. G is in the 5th grade and puts forth her best effort at school and for the second year in a row had the highest grades of all the girls at CLM. She dreams of being adopted, but only if her brother would be adopted with her. She has shown tremendous love and protection for her younger brother D. Pray for G’s continued growth and development and for healing of her trauma. Pray that she would feel the deep love of Jesus for her. (Updated February 2020)

    06– G.Cavalheiro, Girl, Age 14

    G came to CLM in May of 2019, after having spent time in a clinic for substance abuse. G’s family situation is very complicated, and family members had rejected her after she reported the abuse she had suffered. Arriving at CLM, G was very rough around the edges, not knowing how to respond respectfully to caregivers and not sure if she could trust anyone. Miraculously, within three months of her arrival here, she was a totally different person. She is joyful, affectionate, and cooperates with authority most of the time. When she realizes she is wrong, she is repentant. She is interested in going through a discipleship program in preparation for baptism. G is interested in drawing and seems to have the gift of encouraging others. Please pray for her continued development in all areas, especially in her interpersonal relationships. Please pray that she will come to know Jesus personally during her time at CLM (Updated February 2020).

    07- I. Nunes, Boy, Age 11

    I and his older brother P and younger brother Israel arrived at CLM in 2017. Their mother had abandoned the family, and their father would send Pablo and Iago into the streets to beg for recyclable items and money. If they returned home empty-handed, their father would beat them abusively. They learned that it was safer on the streets than at home, so they were spending more and more time there. Israel spent most of the time with his paternal grandmother, so he was a little more protected. The courts are in the process of removing the parents' rights and the boys should be freed for adoption, together or separately. May God prepare their future and may they all learn as much as possible until then. Iago has a loving and caring heart. He readily accepts teaching and correction. I is in the 4th and seems to be making good progress in overcoming his learning difficulties. He continues to be somewhat agitated and has difficulty sitting still. He continues receiving academic help through Kumon. Pray that Iago can deeply experience God’s love and truth and that this can bring healing of his traumas and stabilize his emotional health.

    08- L. Stadler, boy, Age 17

    L. and his younger brother M. have been at CLM since the end of 2019. They had spent a few months with us in 2015 and gone to live with an aunt. This didn't work out, and L. ended up on the streets and got involved with substance abuse. He is significantly behind in his studies, currently in the 7th grade at the age of 17. He has some learning difficulties, but he is a hard worker and is interested in doing his best in school in spite of them. Please pray for L. that just as he has begun to see hope for his future, he would also understand and embrace the Gospel. (Updated September 2020)

    09- L Santos, Girl, Age 15

    L arrived at CLM in October 2019. She had been living in an abusive situation with her stepfather, which drove her to the streets. Her family lives 30 km from the city of Turvo, far from civilization. Her schooling was greatly affected by that. Since she arrived late in the school year, she was not able to bring up her grades, and she is repeating 9th grade this school year. L still has many of the same behaviors she had on the streets, and we are praying we can get through to her with the truth of God’s Word. We trust that the Lord will help us to reach her heart and show her how precious she is. Pray for L and especially for J and L, who are her caregivers. (Updated February 2020)

    10 - M. Voncik, Girl, Age 16

    M arrived at CLM in March 2018. She was not unfamiliar with CLM, having lived at CLM Turvo and CLM Entre Rios in the past, along with older siblings E and J. When L was 7 years old, she was free for adoption and was at that time adopted by a widow. Six years later, her mother passed away and L was brought back to CLM. She has some complicated physical and mental problems. Her vision continues to be extremely limited and she takes several medications due to mental health issues. We are thankful that due to her mother’s pension which she inherited, she was able to have surgery to correct a lazy eye, and these funds can also help pay for her appointments with psychiatrists and psychologists. L is emotionally very needy and often demonstrates inappropriate behavior for her age. Please pray that we can understand how to best work with her and meet her needs. L is in the 9th grade. Pray that the school can learn how best to meet her educational needs as well. (Updated February 2020)

     11 - P. Nunes, Boy, Age 13 (Sponsored)


    P and his younger brothers Iago and Israel arrived at CLM in 2017. Their mother had abandoned the family, and their father would send P and I into the streets to beg for recyclable items and money. If they returned home empty-handed, their father would beat them abusively. They learned that it was safer on the streets than at home, so they were spending more and more time there. I spent most of the time with his paternal grandmother, so he was a little more protected. The courts are in the process of removing the parents' rights and the boys should be freed for adoption, together or separately. May God prepare their future and may they all learn as much as possible until then. P is changing significantly in response to the love and limits he has encountered at CLM, but is still in need of much prayer. P is in the 7th grade at the middle/high school and barely passed 6th grade last year. Pray that this year he will put forth his best effort and have a better year. He is good at drama and music. Please pray for P that he can respond to the love and limits he is receiving at CLM and that further progress can be seen. Also pray for the healing of his traumas and a recognition of his worth and God's love for him. (Updated February 2020)

    12 – W. Marçal, Boy, Age 16

    W and his younger brother G had spent time at CLM Turvo and Entre Rios several years ago and returned to CLM in May 2018. They first went to CLM Turvo as very young boys. They left there to return to their mother, but that lasted only a week due to her involvement in a neighborhood fight that almost cost G’s life in a house fire. They were returned to CLM and spent several more years between CLM Turvo and Entre Rios. Then they left to live with their father. That lasted a little bit longer until he ended up in prison for sexual abuse and the pregnancy of a teenage girl. After that, they were sent to the government group homes where they spent several years, until they were transferred back to CLM in May. W is strong and can be a hard worker when he wants to. He has a problem with one leg being shorter than the other, leaving him with an obvious limp. When he was younger, there was a possible diagnosis of cerebral palsy, but it was never confirmed. Even so, he excels in sports, especially judo. He is in the 8th grade and did better last school year than he had previously. W has a prideful spirit, and we are continually working to help him see and change his attitudes of superiority. He also needs prayer for all the typical areas teenage boys struggle with. Pray that God’s Spirit can penetrate his heart and convict him of God’s love for him, bringing deep healing. Pray that W will continue to grow in trust of his caregivers and the other adults here who are trying to help him. May he become all that the heart of God dreams for him to be. (Updated February 2020)
