Spiritual Family

This summer, we have been focusing on re-launching our Spiritual Family program. Our focus with the Spiritual Family is the following:

Our prayer is that these boys, most without a spiritual heritage, will grasp that God loves them and has redeemed them. We believe God’s desire is to graft them into His spiritual family made of individuals who realize the power of God's love and redemption around the world. Through the Spiritual Family program, we connect individuals who are committed to invest through prayer and relationship in the life of a specific boy at Casa Gabriel. Just as each of us might have immediate and extended family members who have through prayer supported us throughout our lives. We believe God is raising up a spiritual family network for the boys of Casa Gabriel. Through your commitment to prayer and building a relationship, we are convinced your investment can have an eternal impact.

If you have been a part of the Spiritual Family in the past and would like to re-commit, or are interested in learning more about becoming involved for the first time, please contact us! Thank you for your prayers and support which allow this ministry to reach out to former street boys and help them become everything God has for them.
