Role Model

Description

Pray that good guidance will safeguard the lives and futures of children like Rony in Latin America.

Rony Artica, 19, is a role model for other youth in his village and surrounding communities in Honduras. He teaches them how to avoid HIV AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. The program is being expanded to include alcohol and drug abuse.

Rony says he’d probably be in prison or the graveyard if he hadn’t participated in World Vision training through the Channels of Hope youth program, a Bible-based approach to responsible conduct. He says this program allowed him to think about his future.

He's a different person now, he says. He participates in community festivals with other teens. To get across their serious messages, they perform plays, present traditional Honduran dances, stilt-walking, and hands-on games.
