In Paraguay, 15-year-old Carlos placed the barrel of a loaded gun in his mouth. He had been practicing witchcraft to try to help soothe his pain and find some acceptance and love– and it had led him to this. He pulled the trigger expecting to end his life… but nothing happened! By a miracle, the gun wouldn’t fire.

Soon after this, Carlos’ family experienced financial problems and he was transferred to the only school they could afford – a Christian school.

God was at work, and through the prayers and witness of his teachers, Carlos accepted Christ as Savior. The very next week, Carlos received a Book of Hope, attended a Hope Fest crusade and was trained in how to use the Book of Hope in ministry!
