Luiz Fernando, like every other child at Living Stones, is anxiously awaiting October 12, which is Children's Day in Brazil. When Luiz started coming to Living Stones three years ago, it was the last hope for his parents. Luiz suffers from some difficult learning disabilities, as well as being mildly autistic. He lived in his own little world, and refused to come out at school or at home.
One of Luiz's gifts is creativity. Instead of doing classwork, he would take his worksheet and twist, tear, and turn it until he had created a dinosaur or other creature. Instead of disciplining Luiz, the Living Stones workers patiently saw his talents and used them to slowly draw Luiz out of himself. Now, during breaks, you can often find Luiz Fernando surrounded by friends, still creating interesting art pieces.
Thank you for your support of Living Stones, that enables transformation stories like Luiz. He is succeeding at school, at home, and at Living Stones: physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Come alongside us as we celebrate these kids and these successes for Children's day--as well as have a time to share Jesus with the whole community!
