Allan’s Story

If you’ve ever visited the Rayo de Sol office, chances are that you’ve met Allan Altamirano. He’s almost always working, singing (very loudly), or trying to practice his English with you, and he’s constantly bringing laughter to those around him.

Allan Altamirano is a Rayo de Sol university scholarship student, and he is the first person in his immediate family to attend college. Thanks to the scholarship he receives, he is able to continue his studies and have a say in his future career.

Apart from being a role model to his family, Allan is also a great example to his peers in the community. He is a volunteer leader at his local Young Life club and regularly travels with us to help run the rural Young Life club in the Piedra de Agua community, where he leads games and shares biblical messages.

“There are some young people that are caught up in vices, whether that be drugs, alcohol, or any of that. So we are volunteers who help those people to follow God and not go down the wrong path.”

Allan has been a tremendous blessing to Rayo de Sol, and we pray that he will continue to grow in his faith and his leadership role in the community.
