Mission Bite #224: A Chance to Follow Their Dreams

A few days before Christmas I wrote Luis, a 17-year-old Immokalee, Florida resident who volunteers with Cultivate Abundance, a recommendation for DACA status.

DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) is an immigration program that allows some who arrived in the U.S. as children without proper documentation to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit.

As our Immokalee ministry has been blessed by Luis’ presence, we feel grateful that the DACA program continues to offer young people a chance to follow their dreams. Please pray for Luis and many others like him.
