The morning Gabriela’s father asked God for a Bible, he could have never expected four women from Florida would be the ones to deliver it.
On their last day in the Dominican Republic the women visited VisionTrust’s children at Sabana Perdida School. While there, one of the women felt called to sponsor a child and picked Gabriella, age 6. They visited her home, prayed with her family, and brought her father a Bible, not knowing he had prayed for one that morning.
This Bible then started an amazing chain of events.
Gabriela’s father went to church that week and brought along his oldest son, Ernesto age 14. Both accepted Jesus as their Savior! Ernesto is now a part of “King’s Castle,” a ministry which evangelizes to youth in the community.
When all of this happened Gabriela’s parents were separated. After coming to know God, her father reconciled with his wife, and she eventually became a Christian seven months later. Now, the entire family, including Gabriela and her three siblings, are involved in church, Bible studies, and various other ministries.
Praise God for the way He bridges countries and circumstance in order to expand His family.
