Hello everyone, I'm known as Colacio! I'm so glad you are interested in knowing more about me.


Here is a younger picture of me so you can see how much I've grown

Birthdate: March 30, 1998

Since: March 31, 2006

"Colacio is one of the oldest boys in the center, he just turned 22! He lives with his friend in a house next to the center that we recently purchased. Colacio has been very sick since he was a child and we think this is the reason he has learning disabilities. He can read a little bit, but that’s it. He is very kind and we are seeking employment for him, although it has not been an easy task in Mozambique. He could start his own hair salon and make a living from that. Colacio’s father works with us as our nightguard. Colacio loves the Lord and serves in the worship team at church."

Please pray for a good job for Colacio, especially because he cannot read very well.


We praise the Lord that Colacio is such a responsible man and is very friendly.
