My name is Antonio José Sandoval Ávila, I was born in 1989 and I am the fifth of seven children. My father is Alberto Sandoval and Rosa Avila. I entered the community at the age of 12 in the parish of "San José" in Loja. I entered the Redemptoris Mater "San Pedro Clavel" Seminary in Esmeraldas at the age of 25: the Lord called me at a very difficult moment in my life. Thanks to the Church and my family, I have received, with concrete words and deeds, the experience of God's love and providence, through the testimony of my parents who have always put God first, both in the joys and in the sorrows that we have passed. All this has been possible thanks to the service of evangelization carried out through the Neocatechumenal Way, which has been the means that God has used to rescue me from the slavery of sin and grant me a change of direction for my life. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity towards us and I entrust myself to your prayers.
