But since August, when Javier came to be the head care giver, I have seen a huge change in Miguel. He always is seeking ways to help, even when he isn't asked to. He jokes with the other boys and seems to always have a positive attitude. In church, Miguel is almost always one of the first to come forward for prayer. And then, the other day during the sermon, I heard a couple of "Amens" coming from the left side of the congregation. When I turned to see who it was, I smiled when I saw that it was Miguel. I'm thankful for the work that God has begun in the life of Miguel. I know that just as Paul wrote to the church in Philippi, "that He that began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus," God will complete the work that He began in the life of Miguel.

If I were to tell you the child I have seen the most change in during the last 6 months, it would be Miguel. Miguel is 12 years old and an only child. His mother has many psychological problems and he has lived at Casa Hogar Douglas for as long as I can remember. A year ago, I was very worried for Miguel. He was always angry and depressed. I had many people who came to serve in groups notice the same thing about him.
