I grew up in a non-christian family in Guatemala. As a young kid I started making not the best decisions, and by 11 years old I was already very involved in a life of alcohol. At 14 years old my parents separated. Soon after I began to get involved with drugs, and by 17 I was put in a rehabilitation center for drug abuse. After leaving, I fell back into drugs. At 22 years old, I didn't know what to do any more, and came to the church. At that time I received Christ in my heart, and He began to change my life. I was baptized, and began to serve in my church. But a few years later fell away from the church. My brother died from a misfired gun, and I began to fall deeper into drugs. But this time it was worse, and I suffered depression, knowing that what I was doing did not please God. No one wanted to help me, even my own parents were tired of me. But soon I reached out to Marcelo Diez to ask for help. He invited me to join the Word of Life Discipleship Training Canter in Guatemala, to study the Word of God and get out of the life I was living; saying that it wasn't a drug rehab center, but the Word of God has the power to change lives.
At 25 years old I began to study the Bible with Word of Life, and by the Grace of God, He changed not only my way of life, but also my way of thinking. And He called me to serve Him full-time. I studied in Guatemala for 3 years, and then served in the ministry for one year there. Now God has brought me to serve here in the Dominican Republic.
Matthew 28:19-20 "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
