I have three kids at the school and each with varying degrees of attributes and talents. Gaston Christian has met each one of them at their level and made them a better student, a better citizen, and a better person. The people there believe that through God's Word people can be made whole. Thank you, Gaston Christian for being a light in a dark world!
