Meet Randy. We first met Randy through the Cusco women’s shelter, where he and his mom fled to for refuge. Since then he’s held tightly to a new chance at life through Nuevo Camino. He and his mom live off of very little, but one day he arrived to a Nuevo Camino volunteers’ apartment with a very special gift in his arms: a wooden armadillo. Randy saved up his own money to purchase the armadillo, out of gratefulness for all his family received. With their hard armored shells, armadillos represent protection, and Randy wanted to give this to friends who had shown him protection. A million dollars couldn’t compare to the heart behind this gift.

You’re welcome 🙂
When Nuevo Camino volunteers visited San Juan for the first time, they promised to return with school supplies, medicines, and building supplies for the village. When they returned a few days later, they were surprised to be greeted by a crowd of people, furnished with crowns of flowers. Students had spent two afternoons hand crafting the crowns, to show appreciation to their new friends. Their gratitude was beautiful, and represented the heart of Nuevo Camino…spreading love between neighbors across the globe.
2018 has passed and 2019 is upon us! Each day holds beautiful opportunities to do something new. From our Nuevo Camino moms to our long term volunteers, each person has committed to supporting one another in walking toward better futures. From now on, destructive cycles can end. From now on, there’s a reason to get out of bed each morning. From now on, tomorrow can be better than today. What is your “something new?”
2018 has been an incredible year – thank you for all your support!
