This boy's name is Sergio Arturo.
The maternal grandmother asked for help telling us that he was hyperactive and he had to be under medication to control his actions. After hearing her brief history of the boy, whose parents are irresponsible drug addicts who abandoned him with his grandmother, I came to the conclusion that he was just like any other boy, lively and distracted but that the supposed treatment that they were applying, was not correct. For that reason I decided not to give him any pills that the grandmother had brought. I told her if we felt he needed them, we would take him to our own doctor to see what he says. Since he has arrived at Oasis, praise the Lord, Sergio has been detoxed, in that when he first came he was sleepy all the time, laughed to himself for no reason, now he is like any 10 year old boy. I am praying for the help of God to be able to work with him, as we worked with Mario and Fernando, who arrived in a similar state to Oasis, 7 years ago. Thank you for praying for us, for in that way we make a team, and we all work for the Kingdom of God.
PS Please pray for Sergio's sister, who is still with the grandmother. She suffers from epilepsy.
Here are some more pictures of the boys as they continue to learn while helping Marcelo with the wall around his house.

Marcelo is building a wall around his house, and the boys of Oasis are helping, while at the same time learning valuable lessons on construction and team work. Pedro has been available for needed advice, and some of the younger boys are starting to get more involved in this trade. Here are some pictures:

Here is a look at the latest craft they are making at the Inluuvi blind center, a special gift for mother's day. It is made from recycled materials.

Every tuesday at 10 AM, members of Caring Hearts in Mexico join together at the Oasis Boy's Home for prayer. It is a time of seeking God for direction for each aspect of the ministry. We hope you can set some of that hour (10 AM - 11 AM Pacific Time) to join with us in this spiritual endeavor.

The worker bees of Hands Extended of Yuma AZ came to give scholarships and school supplies to a number of children from the Caring Hearts Church, as well as some others in town. Their goal is to help needy kids get what they require to continue their education.
