World-changing in Cheyenne
Jerry Haag, president and CEO of the South Texas Children's Home (center), pauses with several participants from the children's home in a World Changers project in Cheyenne, Wyo -- (right to left) 15-year-old Rebecca, 16-year-old Brian, 18-year-old Ram and 20-year-old Katie. (STCH has a policy of not giving last names of children.)
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (BP)--"Good-bye mi hijos," Maria said as they closed the front gate to leave. They weren't exactly sure what she meant, but the look on her face said she was thankful -- very thankful.

One might suppose she was thankful for their company during lunch. She was, after all, an elderly woman, living alone in a small, one-bedroom house. Over homemade tortillas and beans, the group of students had done their best to overcome the language barrier. Eighteen-year-old Reyes had translated quite nicely.
