Over the years, every father and mother wants to see their children fulfilling their dreams, their goals, because they always want the best for them, and we praise God because we at PEPE have the privilege of helping in this process!
I share with you what Lord did in Antonella Soria’s life , which was part of the history of the first PEPE that we opened in the province of Los Ríos , city of Babahoyo . When she was four years old, her parents enrolled her to be part of PEPE. She was a very thin girl, with a beautiful smile, shy, but very intelligent. It was precisely at PEPE that she learned to pray, heard the first biblical stories, learned to tell, got to know his first letters forming words and took the first steps to make use of his skills.
I had the privilege of being her first missionary-educator . Her mother knew Jesus, but it was at PEPE that her father accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and after some time, the whole family was already part of the church that was being formed in this city. Today, we share one of her goals achieved, as time passed and the girl grew up, went to school, then to university where she studied Graphic Design and on August 3rd of this year was her graduation. Her parents were happy and proud and I was very emotional. I had the opportunity to say a few words and my mind took me back to Antonella ‘s first steps at PEPE. I feel happy, very honored and blessed to be part of this life story.
More than 15 years have passed and now Antonella is 20 years old, she is a young woman who loves God and is obedient to His Word and always very helpful to everyone around her. We pray that she will continue to be faithful to God.
