Hello everyone, I'm known as Guebuza! 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: August 4, 2003

Since: October 20, 2012

"We have so many children in the center by the name of Armando. This Armando goes by his nickname “Guebuza” (a former president of Mozambique). He is a quiet boy and young for his age. He just moved to the older boy's dorm and seems to be happier. He is in the 5th grade for the 3rd time because he cannot properly read or write. There is one thing that he absolutely loves...watching movies. So he is the one in charge of the movies in the center."

- Corrie Ockhuysen

Pray that Armando opens up more about himself and his future goals.


We praise the Lord that Armando is doing better, that he's happier, and that there are less fights.
