What do you do after finding fifty-nine children living inside an old, abandoned warehouse that’s crumbling apart?

It was January, 2001, and a deadly earthquake had just struck off the coast of El Salvador. In its aftermath, several friends faced this very question.

Gary Powell began to dream about how they might help the children. He was inspired by the life of a man in the 1800’s, who built an orphanage that cared for more than one-thousand children, yet never asked anyone for money – he solely prayed to God to meet the children’s needs. Would God allow Gary to witness something like that?

With limited resources and no plan, Gary, his wife, Sharon, and their friends agreed they had to do something. So they took a step of faith, where there was no turning back…and trusted God with the outcome.

In this book, you’ll find:

  • A picture of what it looks like to trust God, even in the most difficult circumstances.
  • Compelling examples of God’s faithfulness and provision.
  • Real stories of hope, healing, and life change.

Love for La Casa de mi Padre & The Miracle Farm

Our family has witnessed firsthand the love and care La Casa de mi Padre provides for children. We’ve been privileged to visit and see the extraordinary things God is doing to bring healing and hope for a better future to these kids. In addition to the personal impact La Casa has made on our family, it’s been an honor for our organization to partner with them and watch their reach and influence expand even beyond the borders of El Salvador. – Andy and Sandra Stanley, North Point Ministries

The story of La Casa de mi Padre is a tangible expression of God’s goodness and power in this world. Through the obedience of Gary and Sharon Powell and so many others, children in El Salvador and beyond will find hope and healing. – Eddie Staub, Founder of Eagle Ranch

It’s been the fulfillment of a lifelong dream and an honor for our family to invest in the vision of La Casa de mi Padre, where lives are transformed. And there’s nothing more compelling than a transformed life. In this book, you’ll find remarkable examples of more than one. – Gary Niebur, President and Co-Founder of Stan Smith Events

In 2009, our family became connected to the ministry and mission of La Casa de mi Padre and the vision of Gary and Sharon Powell, through a Father/Daughter trip with the Nieburs. We’ve been enthusiastic supporters ever since. Many times Americans go on mission trips to bring and reflect Jesus to their host organizations, which is a good thing. But with La Casa, it is so much more. We don’t go or give to La Casa simply to bring Jesus. We go to La Casa to see God tangibly and visibly at work in the lives of their amazing staff and children. This book wonderfully chronicles the willingness of a few families, the vision and faithfulness of dedicated founders, the support of some amazing friends, and the faithfulness of a very big God. – Bill Willits, La Casa Board Member; Executive Director of Ministry Environments at North Point Ministries
