Louis had a dream. He wanted to share the story of Jesus with FARC guerrillas.
The members of FARC are terrorists in Colombia who want to rule the land. They attack, threaten, and kidnap people. Few people are bold enough to share the gospel with them. But that is what Louis wanted to do.
Louis was just a boy, and he seemed to have no way to follow his dream of preaching among the guerrillas. He and his family were very poor.
Louis was able to go to school because he had a sponsor from another country. Through a Christian organization, the sponsor paid money every month to help support Louis.
Louis finished all the classes at his village school. As a reward, the Christian group gave him a beautiful ring. Other than a few pieces of clothing, the ring was all he owned.
