Friday is the day! The DHMs annual trip to Rome begins! This year we will be taking Shyla Montoya, a young 22-year old who has totally turned her life around since the day we walked out of the Post Office after applying for her passport. She now has an apartment and a job where she was made "crew leader". She was accepted at LaGuardia college in New York and will be starting this next April.
The Lord has so blessed us in getting to know her.
We have also been blessed through Scott Scherer, owner of the Catholic Travel Centre. http://www.gocatholictravel.com
We have been given so much to make this trip memorable. Please follow the DHMs and Shyla's Rome journeys on the Catholic Travel Centre's blog at:
Shyla will be posting live on Facebook, you can see all our post on the Denver Homeless Ministry's Facebook page. She will also be interviewed by Daniele Campoli, director of the Catholic Travel Centre Rome office. These interviews will be posted on our website (www.thedhms.org) and on the Denver Homeless Ministry Facebook page. These interviews will also be posted on the Catholic Travel Centre Blog page.
