I was born in the last country in the world, in Santiago, the capital of Chile. A busy and fast city where I found God's love and mercy in my teens.

 

I graduated as an Industrial Engineer and worked for several years in my profession. At the same time, I worked leading various ministries of the church I attended in my country, such as Youth Ministry, Worship and Praise, and Teaching. However, God's call became more and more clear to me and I was unable to continue working at his ministry part-time. Therefore, together with my wife, to fulfill God's purpose in our lives, we made the decision to change our way of life, and we left our country to prepare for the Ministry.

 

Finishing my studies in Theology and Music at the Baptist University of the Americas, God made us part of his plan to reach the Hispanic community of the city of Castroville and its surroundings in conjunction with Vista Community Church. I never thought that God would take my life for such an important mission.

 

My favorite hobbies are playing the guitar and spending time with my beautiful wife Daniela and our two little children who expend all our energies. In each process and adventure that I have lived with my family, I have could verify their love and mercy day after day, that is why my favorite verses are:

 

Proverbs 3:5-6

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart
   and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
   and he will make your paths straight.”
