Calvin Balca and Jose Zezatti have graduated from the Work Faith Connections Program! Calvin and Jose, who also graduated from our Life House recently, are the first participants of the Life House to go through the 8-day job search workshop successfully. They had to apply, participate in the selection interview process, and submit to a drug test. They attended the program from 9 am – 4 pm (Thursday-Thursday), and used metro as their method of transportation to and from Work Faith Connections.
Although they would arrive back to Impact exhausted, they still managed to complete their assigned duties at the church. It took dedication, hard work and commitment to be where they are today. The graduation was full of joy and emotions. Calvin and Jose received all the guidance they need to be successful in finding a job, but also grew spiritually.
We are extremely proud of them for not only graduating from The Work Faith Connections Program but also for recently completing the Life House Program.
And after the Friday graduation the celebration continued on Saturday! Jose made the greatest and most important decision of his life, which was to get baptized. Jose is very reserved and chose to get baptized in private. We are all extremely excited and happy that he now forms part of our Christian family. Please continue to pray for Jose and Calvin as they start this new journey. May God bless them and may they continue to obey Him and glorify His name.
