Architect's presentation February 15, 2009: The symbolism of the new sanctuary

Glenn has been such a blessing to our congregation, God brought him literally to us he was like a frontal encounter and I had prayed to the Lord, years ago, if we're going to do this we need a good architect.

And it's been a joy, I mean, part of the miracles that He has been doing. Glenn, please come forward. Glenn, welcome! It’s great to have you.  Read More »

Sermon December 31, 2008 : Without love everything is in vain

This year, more than ever God has led me to think and meditate upon the concept of love. You know, it’s possible that sometimes when you get to a certain age in your life you begin to evaluate your life and to think about it and you start to think particularly on certain aspects of your life. It’s also this year that we came to 25 years of marriage, celebrate our 25th anniversary. It was also the year that one of our daughters married.

Let’s give a hand to Claudio Yeme, a good friend of mine. You know, we’re going to have a little bilingual dynamic here, and I don’t know who’s translating this morning and I praise the Lord for you, and I thank you but you know what, just because I’m doing an experiment here, I’m going to be translating my brother from up here.
