Hispanic Preaching Minister
I have been called to preach the Word and have been since 1975. I am married to Cilvia and have 5 wonderful children. We both have been involved in Youth Ministry for the most part of our ministry. The Lord has sent me to various countries, including - Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Cuba, Nicaragua, Thailand, Laos, and our beloved USA. I am forever grateful that He has used me in His work. Here in the States, we have preached at Mineola, Atlanta, Ga., Odessa, Abilene, Lubbock, Tx., and have been at Robinson Ave. since April 2, 2004. We are indeed blessed to be a part of a growing and thriving Hispanic congregation! The fellowship with our anglo brethren has been wonderful. My favorite verse will always be - Isaiah 1:16 - 18.
