I accepted the Lord on March 4, 1975, in a Central American Church called Christ Love You, in Concepcion Sur, and after six months I was baptized. I was living in a village, and traveled to a church where I came to know the Lord more deeply as I learned the doctrine which enabled me to grow spiritually.
After one year I began preaching the gospel. God began to use me in ministry and I was able to start a church called the Luz and Vida Church (Life and Light Church). Now I am preaching in the Nueva Esperanza village in Emanuel Church, where God also has used me. Also, in two other villages, La Vueltasa and La Chuchilla I have started two other churches. I am actively and consistently training others for the ministry. I have led many people to Christ, but I do not know the number.
In April 1975, some brothers visited me and held a gospel meeting in my home, preaching the Word of God, there my wife received Christ. They later taught her the Word of God and one year later she was baptized along with nine of her other brothers.
We live in a 2 room house built of adobe. We are poor and so beans and tortillas are our normal meal. In order to provide for my family, I work in the fields growing beans and corn. Your financial help will be a great blessing to our way of life.
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 born into the family of aHindu priest and as his only son, I was expected to take his place. I grew up watching my parents give daily sacrifices, cleaning idols and going to weddings and homes to bless the people. But all my life for some reason, I hated the gods that my parents served. I saw them as powerless. They were not even able to eat the food offerings that we gave to them each day.
