My name is Marco Antonio Gaspar Villegas. I am 16 years old, and I come from San Pedro Mixtepec. I arrived at Casa Hogar with my sister when I was 8 and she was 6 years old.

Arriving at Casa Hogar was a bit difficult, due to all the changes. I was very used to always being in the streets and I didn’t have the stability of a home. Now I am more adapted to the rules of the house and being obedient. I learned to love and respect my authorities and family.

On a normal day each child has responsibilities before going to school. After breakfast I must fulfill my assigned area. Then I go to devotionals and come home after lunch to do schoolwork. Then I get ready to go to school from 1:00 to 8:00 pm. When I get home from school I rest for the next day. During my free time I enjoy playing drums, reading, and hanging out with my friends or family.

I am currently studying at “Victory High School”. I like it because it is a Christian school with values.  We have Bible studies and group activities. Sometimes it is complicated, but I thank God I have been able to continue with my studies.

After High School, I would like to study Bible School here in Roca Blanca for a year and then study in the Worship School, perfecting my knowledge on drums and learning even more about the art of music. I know that God has great plans for my life. I am grateful that He brought me to Casa Hogar and continues to restore my life and affirm me. I love the family that God has given me and the parents who take care of me, even though we are not of the same blood. To them I am their son, and they are my parents.

Children's Home Needs

We are so thankful to those that regularly support the New Day Children’s Home.  Due to prices continuing to climb and a much lower Dollar to Peso exchange rate, the Children’s Home has been struggling to make ends meet.  Would you prayerfully consider giving a one-time gift or being a regular supporter? Thank you!

It costs us $280 dollars a month for each child.  Your help is appreciated!
