Happy New Year!

We pray your new year is off to a great start. Here at Casa Gabriel we continue to trust in God’s guidance to daily live out love, respect and service with the five young men God has currently entrusted into our care. We are also busy working through the acceptance process of several new boys, ages 15 to 18 who have applied to participate in this discipleship ministry. As we enter 2016, take a look back at 2015 in photos.
