Update from Casa Gabriel in Quito, Ecuador
November, 2016

Recently, one of our boys, Paulo, accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior. It has been an interesting road which we at Casa Gabriel have been walking with Paulo, ever since he first came to the house at the beginning of this year. Paulo lived with us for about three months before needing to leave the house for a time as a disciplinary action due to a series of poor choices. He was invited to rejoin the home after a month, with certain stipulations; however, Paulo chose to remain on his own. During the summer, Paulo visited Casa Gabriel often and received help and prayers from the staff, even living with Phil and Debbie for a time. Phil had many heart-to-heart conversations with Paulo. Not only that, but one of our graduates, Juan Miguel, sat down and spoke with Paulo about the tough choices you have to make when you truly want to make a life change, and how living for God has shaped his own life. Paulo listened, and soon responded with his own life declaration:

"I want to accept Christ into my heart, and I want to be baptized."

On Saturday October 22nd, Paulo was baptized by the pastor of the church we attend all together on Sundays, Dios Es Fiel (which translates to 'God Is Faithful').

Pray with us for Paulo as he lives for Christ. Not only that, but please pray for the Casa Gabriel staff to have wisdom and discernment as we walk alongside Paulo. Discipling boys who are not living in Casa Gabriel is something we are continually learning how to do well. We are his family in Christ. Pray for us and with us, please, that Paulo would live for Christ, and that we would support him in a healthy and loving way. We are so thankful for Paulo and for the truth that God is faithful, always.
