How you came to know Christ
I was born into a Christian family. My mother’s faith and love for God inspired me to get closer to Him. When I was twelve, I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior, and I remember saying that I wanted to get to know Him better. I had listened to the word of God and all of my mother’s teachings about Him, but I wanted to have a personal experience; I wanted Him to be real in my life. All I can say is, from that moment on, He has been with me. I grew up with a wonderful mother, but not with a father by my side; still, my God has been the best Father anyone could have. I have experienced His Eternal love and patience. I consider Him my friend and my Savior, my guide… my everything. Once you get to experience His unconditional love, you realize that life loses its meaning if He is not with you. Then Psalm 84:10 becomes a reality for you. “A single day in Your courts is better than a thousand anywhere else! I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God, than live a good life in the homes of the wicked.”
How you discovered FSBC
I was looking for a church to attend. One day I asked my mom, Daysi, to help me and join me in the search to find a church and she agreed. We were driving by FSBCH and we pulled over. While still in the car and thinking if we should go in, Brother Jim came out of the church and invited us, and so we went. I remember Pastor Tibbs preached that day and, for some reason, God touched my heart with the message. My beautiful twins loved Sister Argelia and stayed with her at Sunday School, something I couldn’t get them to do at another place before.
I help coordinate some church activities and/or community events. I am assisting with the church’s press kit and website development. I love doing anything, from cleaning our church, organizing donations, going on missions, to finding ways to be a blessing to others, etc. I love to serve doing anything needed at church when possible.
Since I am involved in many areas, I will share a general vision for all of them. This vision is to share the Gospel, the Good News, to thousands; to reach out to those in need so they can under-stand that God hasn’t forsaken them no matter how bad their situation is. I want to offer a hand and an encouraging word when needed. I want to pray with them, cry with them, and rejoice together on God’s Goodness.
