Children atop “La Bestia” or “The Beast” in Oaxaca for the dangerous and uncertain ride north to the U.S. Pray that God’s Word, through AMO Program, reaches all families in Latin America to head off such desperate measures for a “better life.” God has a wonderful plan for everyone, right where they live.
