Subject: Walter

Something I forgot in my lengthy update.... Walter will be taking 2 final tests tomorrow.  These 2 tests will determine if he graduates high school at this time or not.  Here it is a little different how it works.  He has come into this school in what we would call his senior year.  At the orphanage he was at prior, school was very different and not near the level that he has had to work academically this year. He has had a hard time with the math and elementary physics.   Here, also, your last year is a year of social work in the community.  They worked in elementary schools, built a park for the collegio (high school) and gave immunizations and vitamins to school children.  They also have to pay for these social projects.  The students log in a certain amount of hours of work to be able to graduate.   He has worked very hard in school this year, and we would hate to see him loose the year because of these two tests.   Before the end of November he will be taking an aptitude test with the Honduran military.  He wants to be an aircraft mechanic.  We do not know much about the military here.  But, with the high school degree he will have (an academic one as opposed to a technical degree) he has a better opportunity with the military (the type of job).  Walter also has a heart to work in serving others and eventually would like to work in an orphanage (maybe he will come back here and run the show!).   We are proud of Walter.  He is a fine young man.  He has worked hard to finish school.  He has a heart after God and is very caring of the other boys here.   Blessings, Paula
