Meet the Gabriel Family. Jared is 13 years old (grey shirt) and is essentially the head of the home. His mother Maria came down with severe post-natal depression after the birth of her child – almost catatonic. Jared’s older brother Gideon has mental impairment. Older sister Celina cares for her baby Sophie. Jared was forced to leave school during first grade to care to earn a living and care for his family.
When Stefan Radelich asked Jared if there was something specific that we could pray for him, Jared just looked up at Stefan in the eyes, and said
“Pray for my mum, please, just pray for my mum to get better.”
