Antonio: A testament to God's grace

We can hardly think of Antonio without smiling. This young man has come such a long way over the several years that we have known him, and his life is a testament to God's grace and faithfulness. 

Antonio lived as a part of our BC family for a few years. During that time we watched his character soften from a hard, defiant teenager, to a helpful and respectful young man. He began growing in responsibility, and he loved and was loved by our BC family. However, at a certain point Antonio fell into addiction. Rather than hide what was going on, he made the brave and wise decision to come tell us and ask for help. He then diligently completed a period of time in a Christian drug rehabilitation program. Upon leaving the program, we decided it was best that he not to return to the BC facility to avoid the temptation of the streets which are so close in proximity. He moved in with Mountain Top Ministries, another area ministry run by our close friend David Logue. Under their guidance, Antonio has continued to thrive and grow in ways I'm not sure he even imagined possible. 

Antonio just completed his fourth grade year of education and is currently working in Santa Lucia, where Mountain Top Ministries is located, helping to repair roads. We are so grateful for Antonio's story the example it shows of God's power.

Despite no longer living in our facility, Antonio will always be a part of our family and, as such, it is always a joy to spend time with him during Beach Christmas. Please consider donating to make his trip possible!
