2015 Photo of the Day – Day 19

This is the boy who followed us around the barrio. I wonder what has become of him these four years on.

Note: For this last week of photos, we have decided to post photos that started as Instagram posts on an iPhone 3s (through a personal Instagram feed:

The iPhone 3s had a lot of limitations that the new versions do not, specifically horrible low-light capability and a characteristic low-resolution output. These were all run through Instagram filters which add to their unique look. We hope that you will enjoy these archaic photos from an earlier era… four years ago (my technology changes rapidly!)


This is last week of photos exclusively on Gabriel’s work in Ecuador. Thanks for all of your interest in the work he is doing in Ecuador. Ecuador posts will appear from time-to-time throughout 2015, but this is the last week of exclusive focus on this particular project.

I have known Gabriel for nearly ten years. Apart from his time spent in the US to study at the Master’s College in California, he works with street kids and barrio residents in Guayaquil, Ecuador. This is an extremely dangerous ministry.

I spent a week with him travelling the streets of Ecuador’s most dangerous neighborhoods. I watched him as he made connections, ministered to hurting residents, and keep up good relations with the people of the barrio so it will continue to be safe for him to work with the barrio’s abandoned children.

After I returned to the US, the dangerous nature of his ministry was emphasized. I learned that one of the men who helped us during our forays into the barrio was murdered in that same neighborhood.

He has a home set up with some local help to rescue a few children from the streets, but very few. The money is always in short supply.

If you want to help Gabriel, please give using the link below. AMPP will transfer all money to Gabriel in Ecuador.
