Miguel just had his 8th birthday. I met Miguel 4 years ago when I visited El Salvador for the second time. I remember that Miguel liked to dance. He said we would be dance partners forever. Miguel lived in another house with a different ministry when I first met him. That house closed and Miguel was then placed in a govt. agency with his mother while their Judge decided what to do with them. It was then that I started the fight to have Miguel and his mother live with us at Esther's House. It was a long wait and a lot of red tape and fighting. It took 6 months before I finally got Miguel with us. The first week Miguel was here I sat down and had a talk with him. He was certainly confused by what he had just gone through and was acting out a little bit. I told him that he was the man of the house. He had a lot of responsibility in teaching the other children how to follow directions. I told him that I depended on him to help me. I saw him well up with pride as he told me he could be resposible. I remember him thinking for a few minutes and then he said to me: "If I'm the man of the house, I think I'll need a motorcycle so I can get to work and back". We call Miguel Pastor Miguel. He loves to play church. He gathers all of the children and they have church services. Miguel is always the one to preach. His sermons are always short, sweet and to the point, but very wise and powerful. I am thankful that God entrusted us with Miguel. I know that He has a grand plan for this young man's life. Miguel is currently taking guitar lessons. He wants to join the worship team at church one day. As for the dancing; you can still catch Miguel and me doing a waltz every now and again.
