Abele is a gripping Christian children's story about three siblings who live in a dystopian world where a corrupt global government has banished Christianity. It follows the three Elpizo siblings on a unique mission to save their grandparents. Noah, Evangeline, and Izak escaped the labor compound from Harromog and now need food, water, and shelter. Luckily, on the way to the Spirit Tree, God eases their journey by sending messages through pinecones, birds, and animals that only Noah can read and hear, as he is the only one baptized in the Spirit. When they arrive at the hidden place, the Elpizo siblings learn God has good plans for them, and they must always keep their faith, discover their purpose and be patient. Yet, once again, they must travel back through dangerous places to rescue their grandparents from the compound.
