     01- D. Oliveira, boy, Boy, Age 9 (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. are in the process of being released for adoption, but it is taking a long time because their mother is unwilling to release them. 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 repeating the 3rd grade and has significant learning disabilities, specifically difficulty with memory. He just cannot retain what he has been taught. He receives special help at school and at home but continues to have great difficulty. Recently, it was discovered D. has strengths in the mechanical area. He 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. Although his sister dreams of them being adopted, D. has declared that he does not want to leave CLM. He wants to grow up here and then work and live here. May God’s will be done in their lives and that if that includes adoption, may God prepare D. for that. May they 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 May 2019)

     02 - E. Correa, Boy, Age 15 (Sponsored)


    E. & E. are brothers who arrived at CLM in November 2015, along with their older sister. She only stayed a month before running away, and she was not brought back to CLM. E. just turned 18 and continues at CLM, studying and working. 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 7th grade and could be a very good student. Last year he started in the middle school and did not apply himself very well. His class has quite a few not so well-behaved students and unfortunately, E. has joined in with the group. 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 11

    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 after a few months and have not been located. Pray for their safety and that they will listen to God’s voice however He may show Himself to them. G. is a very responsible and respectful young man. He does well in school and plays indoor soccer. Please pray that he will come to know and love Jesus Christ during his time at CLM (Updated September 2019

    04–G. Marçal, Boy, Age 14

    G. and his older brother W. 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 Gabriel’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 big for his age. When he arrived at CLM, he had serious difficulties with self-control and obedience. He is on medication for aggressiveness. He is immature for his age and tends to like to play with the younger kids. G. was obsessed with provoking his older brother, W., until it ended up in a physical fight. It was so constant and dangerous that Willian was moved to one of the other family groups. Gabriel is repeating 6th grade. He doesn't seem to have difficultly learning but lacks confidence and motivation and has difficulty staying on task. Emotionally, it is very difficult to penetrate his heart and bring about a change of behavior and reaction to his environment, although he has been doing better the last few months. 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. (Updated May 2019)

     05 - G. Oliveira, Girl, Age 10 (Sponsored)


    G. & 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.& D. are in the process of being released for adoption, but it is taking a long time because their mother is unwilling to release them. 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”. She was very angry and her attitudes greatly concerned us. 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 being sensitive to the needs of others, and she is usually happy and cooperative. G. is starting the 4th grade and received excellent grades last school year. She is receiving extra help at school and at CLM and is participating in Kumon for Portuguese, as well. 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 May 2019)

    06-G. da Luz, Boy, age 8

    G. first spent time at CLM in 2014-2015 with 8 older siblings and two nephews. After less than a year, the oldest siblings were returned to the family. The intention was to see if the family would improve in areas like providing a cleaner home environment and sending the kids to school and not to the streets to collect recycling items. After several months, the 4 younger boys were also returned home. G. spent a few years at home before he and 2 of his brothers were removed again. He spent a short time in the government group home, then returned to CLM in October 2017, with his younger brother C., who was born during the first time G. and his siblings were at CLM. G. returned loaded with anger and very difficult behavior such as lying, stealing, fighting, violent tantrums, etc. Since G. is very intelligent, he received a scholarship at the private school in the colony; however, he was behind his 3rd grade classmates and had some catching up to do. Unfortunately, he was totally resistant to study. His behavior at school and at home was very difficult and time consuming. He ended up failing the school year at the private school and is now repeating 3rd grade at the public school. Please pray for wisdom for his caregivers as they seek to mold godly character in him. Pray that G. and his younger brother C. could be released for adoption soon, so that they can be adopted while they are still young enough to adapt well. (Updated May 2019)

    07- I. Nunes, Boy, Age 10

    I. and his older brother P. and younger brother I. 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. I. spent most of the time with his paternal grandmother, so he was a little more protected. At first, the three siblings were in the same family group and due to violence with each other and with the other children, it was necessary to separate them. We are now slowly working on their sibling relationships. 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. I. has a loving and caring heart. Separated from P., he is not rebellious and readily accepts teaching and correction. He was in 3rd grade last year, and at the beginning of the 2018 school year, had many difficulties in his studies. He is very agitated and has difficulty sitting still. He had also been out of school for a year before he came to CLM, so he was far behind and not interested in making an effort. I. is now improving in school, but still has a lot of catching up to do to get to grade level. Lord willing, he will be starting K. to help him continue improving this school year. I. is starting to learn that he does not need to do everything that P. tells him to do. We are working with him on his identity and being his own person, so that he can base his character on God's principles. 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. (Updated May 2019)

    08- I.Nunes, Boy, Age 7

    I. and his older brothers P. and I. 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. Israel spent most of the time with his paternal grandmother, so he was a little more protected. At first, the three siblings were in the same family group and due to violence with each other and with the other children, it was necessary to separate them. We are now slowly working on their sibling relationships. 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. I. is rather agitated, making it difficult for him to sit still and sometimes giving him problems in school, where he currently studies in the 3rd grade. He is very loving, affectionate, and friendly. When he does something wrong, he feels deep regret and sadness for disappointing adults he admires. I. had his eyes examined in 2018 and now uses strong glasses (7.0 in one eye and 7.5 in the other). Please pray for I.’s continued development in all areas, and for God’s perfect plan for his future. (Updated May 2019)

    09 – L. Santos, Boy, Age 17

    Leonardo came to CLM with his brother, C., in 2012 when their mother was dying of cancer. The idea was that when she died, they would return to their aunt who was taking care of their mother, but that did not happen. None of their relatives wanted to take responsibility for them. L. suffered greatly with that disappointment. During that time of struggle, he ran away and went to the house of a neighbour, who was almost like family to them. He heard from her the truth that there was no one in the family that had any interest. That helped him accept reality and readjust his plans. L. appears to be a loving, well-adjusted boy, although he tends to hide his true emotions and tries not to get attached to people. He is starting the second of three years of high school and is a very good student. He is also participating in a youth work program at a local meat packing co-op. He was baptized in 2018. He takes drum lessons and plays with the praise team at church. L.'s brother, C., turned 18 in 2017 and decided to leave CLM at the beginning of 2018. For several years the brothers have had the involvement of a special couple, E. & S., who sought permission from the Judge to take the boys on weekend visits or just to spend the day with them. It is an opportunity for the brothers to be together. Pray that L. would continue to understand more deeply the love of the Heavenly Father and trust and participate in God’s plans for his future. (Updated May 2019)

    10 - M. Voncik, Girl, Age 15

    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 her sibling E. & 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 died 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. will be repeating the 8th grade in 2019. Pray that the school can learn how best to meet her educational needs as well. (Updated May 2019)

     11 - P. Nunes, Boy, Age 12 (Sponsored)


    P. and his younger brothers I. & I. arrived at CLM in 2017. Their mother had abandoned the family, and their father would send P. & 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. At first, the three siblings were in the same family group and due to violence with each other and with the other children, it was necessary to separate them. We are now slowly working on their sibling relationships. 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. He has discovered that he likes school and is a good student. He will be starting 6th grade at the middle/high school. He is good at drama and music. Lord willing, he will be starting clarinet lessons in February through a scholarship at the local cultural center. 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 May 2019)

    12 - P. Matias, Girl, Age 18

    P. came to CLM at the end of 2017. Both her mother and father have mental problems, and her father was an alcoholic. When P. was born, her mother tried to kill her several times. As an infant, P. was removed from her parents and stayed in the government group home until 4 years of age. At that point, she was returned to her parents. As a teenager, she got pregnant and had a baby boy. However, she was not prepared to care of him, and he was removed from her. He is probably about 3 years old today and shows signs of autism. After P.'s son was removed from her, she was brought to CLM. She had some problems with alcohol in mid-2018 and had to go through a chemical dependence rehab program. She takes medication to help her avoid this addiction in the future. After returning from rehab, she ended up spending the rest of the 2018 school year at home to help her stabilize and be able to resist temptation in the future. During this time that she was not going to school, P. became a very calm, loving person and is very helpful at home. Lord willing, in March, she will start taking classes at night again to work on completing her middle school. Pray for her protection and understanding of God's loving care for her. Pray that she would be able to progress in school and also resist the temptation to get involved with alcohol again. P.’s father seems to have cleaned up his life and is making visits to her. Please pray that God’s will be done regarding the possibility of living with her father after she turns 18. (Updated May 2019)

     13 – S. Amaral, Girl, Age 16 (Sponsored)


    S. came to CLM when she was 9 months old, along with 4 older siblings, A., F., L. & R. S. was a very angry baby. All of CLM celebrated when, after several months, we managed to get a smile out of her. Their father was in jail for killing his brother, which was witnessed by the children. Their mother was not taking good care of them, so they were removed and taken to the government group homes, but were separated. Coming to CLM made it possible for the 5 of them to be together. When S. was about 7 years old and CLM Turvo was reopened, she was transferred there with 4 other children. This was done to prepare her for adoption without her siblings. Two adoption attempts failed and after a time at the government group home, she returned to CLM Entre Rios in April 2015. S. greatly desires to live with one of her sisters. However, neither A. nor F. have been at a point in their lives where they can take on this responsibility. F. requested the guardianship at the end of 2018, and we are in the process of seeing how everything will pan out. Please pray for S.’s emotional stability during this waiting process. S. worked as a helper at Kumon during the second half of 2018, correcting the students’ papers. In February, she is to start a teacher’s training program in Guarapuava, parallel with her high school studies. S. is a very beautiful girl and enjoys playing the violin and singing. S. has a very hard time believing and trusting in a loving Heavenly Father and needs much inner healing. Pray for S. that she can allow the Holy Spirit to do a mighty work of healing and creating godly character in her. May His love and her value become very real to her. (Updated May 2019)

    14 - V. Goes, Girl, Age 16

    V. came to CLM in October of 2017 and adapted quickly. She is from here in the colony but had spent the previous month in the government home in Guarapuava. She was happy to be able to return to the same school where she was studying before that. She will be in the 9th grade in 2019 and is waiting on test results to see if she will be selected for the youth work program at the Agrária. Vitória has a complicated life story, but she is working hard to overcome it. She is starting to understand that God's plans for her are very different from what she learned was normal during the first 14 years of her life. She takes medication for mood swings and is learning to ask for help with she feels out of control. V. is taking violin lessons and can be a very good helper around CLM when she is in her up moments. Please pray that V. would continue to open her heart to learn about God's love and His plan for her life. Pray that she would continue to let God humble her and work on the parts of her heart that she stubbornly guards due to past traumas. (Updated May 2019)

    15 – W. Marçal, Boy, Age 15

    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.l’s life in a house fire.

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 a very big boy and is strong and a hard worker. When he arrived, he was taking excessive amounts of medication, which we were able to get reduced. 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 going into 7th grade and had to put forth a lot of effort at the end of last year to be able to pass. He is shy with low self-confidence and is slow to smile. W. needs a tremendous amount of orientation and help in all areas. 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 May 2019)
