I was born in Barillas, Huehuetenango, Guatemala. I grew up in a Christian home. I speak Spanish, English and Chuj (Guatemala dialect). I am married to Katherine Santiago from Colombia, South America. I have two daughters, Kayla and Melody. I love reading God-related books.
God called me to the ministry when I was a child. I learned to read and write with the Bible. I loved to attend children’s Bible studies and adult groups; I even attended the church’s business meetings. I felt like Samuel in the Bible when he was called by God during his childhood.
At the age of 13 I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior, and got involved in youth group ministry. I participated in different activities and outreaches in my Church and learned more about God and the Spiritual Values of Christianity.
At the age of 21 I was baptized and started serving in the ministry at my church. After that, God placed a desire in my heart to study His Word deeply by going to study at the Seminary in San Antonio, Texas. He prepared me in the area of Pastoral Ministry and Church Planting.
How I met my wife:
Through friends, then by telephone and internet
Reading, watch news and sports, go out with my family
Favorite Christian author and why:
Rick Warren, because he is pastor and church planter, there is a lot to learn from him
HOW WE CAN PRAY
♦ Pray for my family
I am very thankful for my family, my wife and my daughters are very supportive in the ministry. Pray as we continue working and walking together in the ministry. We want to stay healthy physically and spiritually.
♦ Pray for me
I want to stay closer to God, resist temptation, and believe in the promises of God to never give up. I want to be a pastor that God wants to bed-according to God’s own Heart.
♦ Pray for the church
I want to see my church growing in numbers and knowledge of God. I want to see the new members to get involved in the ministry. I want to see leaders being raised. I want to see the new members tithing to support church.
I see a healthy, loving and growing Hispanic Church in the City of Indianapolis by Evangelizing the lost people, disciple the new believers, and send them out to reach other people for Christ
