Juan had gotten a good paying job right out of school. He worked as a prison guard at a juvenile detention facility in Mexico. The job paid enough to give Juan and Rosie and their kids a good middle class lifestyle. However, Juan couldn’t sleep well at night because of the constant rotation of young boys he saw come through the detention facility. He kept thinking that these boys could amount to more. So he and his wife decided to open a home for troubled boys.
Located in Santo Tomas, Oasis Boys Home now cares for and educates around 25 boys. The boys receive training in skills like carpentry and baking. A sustainable farm is also maintained on the land. The ministry has grown with the help of the government and now receives referrals of young boys. The vision for the next phase is a home for children with special needs. Juan and Rosie have been able to work with the government to locate and place troubled boys under the age of 18 to Oasis. A working plan for each of these boys is started upon their arrival and the goal is to return them to their homes. We believe this work needs to be relevant and lasting in these boy's lives.
In September 2021, we will come along side Juan and Rosie and help begin construction on a home for special needs kids. Your help is needed as we are offering a trip to begin the building of this home in Santo Tomas. You can also help by donating to this project. Can you serve with us?
