I was born in a broken home. I have never met my father, and to this day I still don’t know his name. I was raised by my mother but she got very ill and passed away just a few days after accepting Christ as her personal Savior. After her death, my maternal grandmother raised both my younger sister and me. God used a friend of my mother to allow us to attend a church which was the instrument used for us to come to Christ. In 1992, I decided to accept Christ as my personal Savior. I was convinced that was the most important decision I could ever make and that He is the only one that could ultimately changed my life and my eternal destination. I grew up in church, but I didn’t allow great things to occur in my life. It wasn’t until I was invited to attend to a Word of Life camp when I began to understand what greater things God wanted to accomplish in my life. At the campfire service, I was led by the Lord to dedicate my life. I told Him that night that I was willing to be an instrument for His glory. Sometime later, God gave me the opportunity to serve as a bible club leader with the teens at my church. Then I was challenged by the Word of Life director to pray about going to the Word of Life Bible Institute in Argentina. God’s provision was evident and I ended up traveling to the Bible Institute with the goal of receiving the necessary training to serve Christ in Honduras. I am now serving with my wife Heidy, and our sole desire is to be instruments of God to reach Honduras for Christ.
