Israel Garcia Ramirez
I'm the Comunication's Coordinator & a Youth Leader in Sant Celoni's Church (Barcelona)
My focus is on evangelizing the Good News to our generation in many ways. Serving at the Local church investing time on teenagers and young guys through discipleship.
Also, through new technology tools that millions and millions of youth use everyday, is an awesome way to spread the gospel to them!
Another role I have is to create new things to make this ministry known, by helping our missionaries on everything related to communications.
• I come from a Christian family. My grandparents were converted many years ago and that is how my family came to know Christ. Some of my brothers and cousins are not Christians, and some of them are, but they are mainly Sunday Christians.
• My parents got divorced because my father was addicted to drugs when I was a child. This caused me to rebel against my family completely while I was growing up, never wanting to be at home. I thought we were a broken family.
• One day, at the age of fifteen I met a friend in one of the Christian camps that I usually went when I was a child. A year after that he invited me to an evangelization camp called “Operación 3:16." I decided to go because I thought it was going to be the same as all the other camps I had been to before.
• Nevertheless, this camp was different. They started talking about the gospel, about the way of salvation. They were teaching how to share the bad news and the good news of the gospel, but actually, they were evangelizing me.
• One night at the camp, we were watching the movie Fireproof. At that moment I decided to follow Jesus and ask him to be my Lord and Savior, because no one except Him could heal all the pain I had inside of my heart. I decided that I was going to make a difference in my family; I did not want a broken heart anymore.
• God put a missionary in my life called Bill Rose, and he and his family helped me so much when I was away from the Lord. Bill was the example of the father that I’d never had.
• He invited me to go to a Word of Life Camp in Ciudad Real. Weeks after the camp I was praying and I decided to be a missionary 24/7, because nothing makes sense for me if I’m not serving the Lord in my everyday life.
