Mark Estephan, more commonly known as Sabel Gonzales, revealed on social media that he has gone back to living as a male instead of a trans woman.
He is best known for winning Eat Bulaga’s Super Sireyna Queen of Flowers in 2014.
KAMI learned from his Facebook page and PEP.ph that Mark changed his life because of his Christian faith.
“It’s 2018, and I found my true happiness in life from Our Lord Jesus Christ. Only God can change to you and to me... So accept and follow Jesus now as our savior and repent from our sins.
“He is the only way , the truth and the life to be with the Father and to be in heaven. God is transforming me for His will in my life and I know that I was born as a man, that’s the creation of God…
“I realized that I just created an idol in my own desire but not God’s desire. Now, I surrender my life to Him. All glory to God.
“God changed me. He is the only one who can change us for His will. His love for us is eternal and everlasting. I’m just doing the right thing in my life with His guidance.
"Now, that I know the truth and following Jesus in my life, it’s a new life, new creation of God, it’s not my own desire anymore but it’s a God’s desire for my life.
"(John 14 :6) 'Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.'
"To accept Jesus Christ as our savior and declare that He is our Lord, to confess our sins ,ask forgiveness , to repent , surrender our life to Him and to obey His commandments, and we will be SAVED.
“I am free and I found my real FREEDOM, LOVE, EQUALITY, RESPECT , and ACCEPTANCE for being who I am and what I am because of JESUS!”
Aside from winning Super Sireyna, Sabel also made an impact in the 2017 Miss International Queen.
The contest was held in Pattaya, Thailand.
Although he did not win the competition, he was still able to enter the top 10.
KAMI is hoping that Mark would be able to find true peace and happiness in his life!
