Edgar is 15 years old and in the 10th grade at Lifesong Honduras.
On June 5th, 2009 his father was shot and killed because he didn't want to sell his property, leaving his mother alone to raise Edgar and his brothers.
Recently Edgar's family decided to move to another state and wanted him to join them. However, even though it was hard to watch them leave, he was determined to continue his education at Escalon. After being there for 3 years, Edgar understands his need for education as a step towards a better life.
When asked about these major trials he has had to face in his young life, he simply says,
"It's just like "Pastor Guy" (Lifesong Honduras director) always says, "we should never give up."
After graduating Edgar wants to study in the medical field. He desires to use these skills to help people in need and give back as he has been given.
