We are very excited to announce that Ben Soden has moved to Guatemala to work fulltime for the Mi Arca project.
Ben, 21, is from Amersham in the UK and came out to Guatemala last year and ever since has felt a strong calling on his life to give up the plans he had for working in the UK and join the street team from the Mi Arca 1st July 2017.
His first few weeks in Guatemala have been particularly tough. In 15 days Ben had to attend 3 funerals for young people who had died on the streets, the last being young Gerson who Ben knew well.
Please read Duncan´s recent blogs to understand more about how hard it is to be a street worker in Guatemala City.
Street Invest in London is supporting Ben and we are very grateful for the training they have given Ben and the weekly support they offer.
