I have been saved since the moment I received the Lord Jesus Christ into my heart. Three months after my conversion, I was invited to a Bible study and from then on I felt a great need to study and immerse myself in the Word of God. Three years later I went to a place far away from my residence where there were no Christians and there I began my ministry where there have been many souls converted for the Lord. I now pastor a church there. I was saved in July of 1968, and was baptized 6 months later.
When I met my wife we were in a worship meeting. She was a Christian, by the grace of God, but her parents still had not received the Lord. Shortly thereafter, we decided to marry and did. Since then, we have been serving the Lord and my wife is very good at supporting me in the ministry of the Lord while we are waiting for God's glorious coming. My wife accepted Jesus Christ in February 1962, and was baptized 2 months later.
Through our ministry, 5 churches have been started and I have trained 4 men to work in the ministry. Three hundred seventy-five people have come to Christ, and we are busy taking the Gospel to the prisons, preaching on the radio, holding open air evangelistic meetings, and of course discipling new Christians. We have children's ministries in our church and in Huehuetenango. I speak Spanish and Mam and work with the Mam tribal group.
Our income is about 300 quetzales a month but it does not meet our needs of over 500 quetzales a month. Please pray for us and support us financially so we can have a greater outreach in our area of Guatemala.
Every 4 months sponsorship funds are sent to the preachers. With it goes a Missionary Report Form for each one to complete and return to our office. After compilation of statistics they are forwarded by mail or email to the sponsors. Below are past report forms from this preacher. They have been modified to protect the financial data of the sponsor.
I was saved by the glory of the Lord in 1981. The fellowship of the church made me strong in my faith. In 1985 I joined a Bible School because I saw the hand of the Lord leading me throughout my life. By the end of 1988 I graduated and began my ministry on the spot. I assisted my pastor before starting my own church.I have been a pastor ever since.
