December, 2021 Christmas mission visits Arturo at the shelter for the homeless
In 2007, Arturo lived with his mom, who is a drug addict.
Mom and another drug addicted 'friend' got into a fight. This 'friend' covered Arturo, who was only 5-years old, with gasoline and set the little boy on fire.
His entire body is a mass of scars. He lost both his ability to hear and speak as a result of the fire.
The muscles in both hands were badly burned and he can never unclench his fists.
He lives at the shelter for the homeless.
