I thank God for the wonderful heritage that He has given me. I grew up as a missionary kid in the country of Spain. From childhood I was able to hear the gospel taught and see it modelled in my parents’ lives and in the church that my father pastored in Alcalá de Henares, Madrid. As a result, I came to faith in Christ at a young age.
In my early teens, God began to give me a fresh desire to study His word and serve His people. So at sixteen I began to lead the youth ministry at a new church plant in Valencia, Venezuela. God used that time to confirm his calling in my life for full-time ministry. After going to Bible College in the U.S., I went down to Peru to be mentored for ministry by veteran missionary Austin Gardner. While in Peru, I met my wife and we were married in 2006.
