I married my best friend Gladys 16 years ago. We currently have 10 children – Angel, Damian, Summer, Natelie, Jacob, Faith, Adrian, Isaac, Phoenix, and Demarcus. We are a BIG family!
About 8 years ago God called my wife and me into foster care. Something we never thought about. Even though we experience all the weight and emotions that come with doing foster care, it’s evident that God has been with us every step of the way. At times it is messy, but there is so much beauty because GOD is with us.
Even though I was raised in the church, I didn’t know Jesus. I turned to a false life of sin and darkness. I would do any drug you put in front of me. BUT GOD! About 15 years ago GOD stripped everything away from me and got my attention. He got my heart! He saved me! He showed me what real life in Him looks like. He showed me what true love is.
Not only has God given me the beautiful privilege of caring for our family at Redemption Alhambra, but I also get to care for and pastor the community that LORD has placed our church in. Even though Alhambra is known for its high crime and sex trafficking, it is our home. It is beautiful, GOD is moving, and we get to be part of what HE is doing. As I continue this life that God has called me into I pray that I’m a man going after God’s own heart.
