IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS

1 Timothy 1:12 “And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry.”
May 5th, 2019 was a special day for Sami and I as we celebrated my ordination as a Pastor with all of our friends and family. The verse that came to my mind as I got the opportunity to share was 1 Timothy 1:12 “And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry.” There are many things that I will take out from such special night, but more than anything it was a day of thanksgiving, praise, and honor to the One who has enabled me and counted me as faithful.
The fact that we saw many friends and family supporting us, celebrating, and affirming the calling that God has placed in our life is a testament of the grace of Christ Jesus towards a sinner redeemed. The truth of the matter is that being a Pastor, Church Planting in Mexico City, and doing it alongside of my wife is impossible on our own but the grace of God enables us to do the things that we can’t do on our own so all the Glory goes to Christ. The greatest honor is that Jesus takes sinners, enemies of God and has the love, power, and desire to transform them into a new creation by giving His own life to call us and count us faithful in the ministry. We will go to Mexico City humbly knowing that it was His grace that makes us who we are.
Thank you to all who have been a support to us during our season here!
