Por un comentario de que podía tocar la guitarra de manera muy básica y por la inmensa misericordia del Señor que se fijó en mí comenzó todo. Me hace un hombre privilegiado porque en la iglesia los encargados de alabanza son las tropas de choque del Señor. Son quienes levantan al pueblo y lo preparan para escuchar su Palabra viva que produce fe y salvación. Yo vine a Calvary Church en un momento de prueba, donde experimenté muchas cosas dolorosas que me hundieron. En esta familia, que es mi casa, encontré el alivio, consuelo, hermandad y restauración de mi vida. En esta casa mi Padre Dios salió corriendo a abrazarme y a sanar mis heridas. Comencé desempeñándome como líder de alabanza y asistente del pastor de español, pero los propósitos de Cristo a quien sirvo junto con mi familia, me llamó a ser Pastor del servicio de Español. Cargo que me demanda mucha responsabilidad, pero que hemos abrazado confiando en el genuino llamado de Jesús y que diariamente con la gracia del Espíritu Santo seguimos firmes para el Señor. Soy un hombre feliz, bendecido, lavado de sus pecados, mi vida ya no es la misma porque sirvo a mi Dios con quien tengo una relación especial: la guitarra, una alabanza y su Espíritu Santo nos permiten adorarle, porque “Dios habita en las alabanzas de su pueblo”. Y por supuesto el pan de la palabra que se predica cada domingo apegados a la Palabra de Dios que es nuestra fuente única y la luz del Espíritu Santo.
