I am originally from Guatemala (revival is sweeping the nation)
being in the us for most of my life I have become not just a bilingual person but a multicultural person. Its not enough to know languages but you have to understand their way of thinking.

allow your kids to be kids let them have fun they grow up quick

the word that best describes me is REVOLUTION
my goal in life is to start a spiritual revolution with kids
1) They would become totally sold out to God
2) For them to become empowered with the Holy Spirit and walk in power
3) To walk in authority
I would like to fallow the example of the biggest revolutionary in the world Jesus He took 12 man and turn the world upside down he was able to penetrate even the deepest part of the world his name commands authority just by saying his name demons run, diseases disappears
his words still have power today the same way they did over 2000 years ago -Milton
I want to be a revolutionary

During a service in Columbia SC God really spoke to me about spending time with my son
and to take the time to disciple him in the ways of God.
I challenge some of you to take the time with your kids even if its just to be goofy like we did with this video, afterwards he hugged me and told me thank you for taking time to make him a video he called it (our memories)
1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you confessed the good confession in the sight of many witnesses
I am a minister. I minister to the largest mission field in the world. I minister to children.
My calling is sure. My challenge is big. My vision is clear. My desire is strong. My influence is eternal. My impact is critical. My values are solid. My faith is tough. My mission is urgent. My purpose is unmistakable. My direction is forward. My heart is genuine. My strength is supernatural. My reward is promised. And my God is real.
In a world of cynicism, I offer hope. In a world of confusion, I offer truth. In a world of immorality, I offer values. In a world of neglect, I offer attention. In a world of abuse, I offer safety. In a world of ridicule, I offer affirmation. In a world of division, I offer reconciliation. In a world of bitterness, I offer forgiveness. In a world of sin, I offer salvation. In a world of hate, I offer God’s love.
I refuse to be dismayed, disengaged, disgruntled, discouraged or distracted. Neither will I look back, stand back, fall back, go back or sit back. I do not need applause, flattery, adulation, prestige, stature or veneration. I do not have time for business as usual, mediocre standards, small thinking, outdated methods, normal expectations, average results, ordinary ideas, petty disputes or low vision. I will not give up, give in, bail out, lie down, turn over, quit or surrender.
I will pray when things look bad. I will pray when things look good. I will move forward when others stand still. I will trust God when obstacles arise. I will work when the task is overwhelming. I will get up when I fall down.
My calling is to reach boys and girls for God. It is too serious to be taken lightly, too urgent to be postponed, too vital to be ignored, too relevant to be overlooked, too significant to be trivialized, too eternal to be fleeting and too passionate to be quenched.
I know my mission. I know my challenge. I also know my limitations, my weaknesses, my fears and my problems. And I know my God. Let others get the praise. Let the church get the blessing. Let God get the glory.
I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose. ~Woody Allen
Even if there is nothing to laugh about, laugh on credit. ~Author Unknown
Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.
Laughter is an instant vacation.
Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.
A man isn't poor if he can still laugh

Its time for a revolution
Many people see that there are dying souls in the streets people that are living life with no purpose. This is just a thought
How would our city change if 144 people would find what God put them in the earth to do
and it would burn in their hearts and run with the vision of change - what would be the outcome in 12 months in our city
(a revolutions of radicals for God)
To accomplish much you must first lose everything.
We cannot be sure of having something to live for unless we are willing to die for it.

Galadriel:The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was, is lost, for none now live who remember it.
I love that quote
Life is like a dogsled team. If you ain't the lead dog, the scenery never changes.
Being the a kids pastor some of the things that you always have to pray an ask God about is the direction that God is moving.
looking at kids program at this time we use kidmo its a great program but I think God wants us to go DEEPER. Our church is a full Gospel church we have great worship some of the songs are by Hillsong a great A/G church in Australia they put together a program called BIG its cool and most of it all it teaches sound doctrine the same one we teach here in our church. the worship is out of this world its BIG

I feel like reaching for the big one (God)
this is the word of today for me
Momentum: force or speed of movement; impetus, as of a physical object or course of events: The car gained momentum going downhill
I believe that God wants us to gain momentum in him and what we do for him.
During the time I played football one of my favorite things to do was to gain (speed) momentum before I would hit the other player and plow them down
in the same way I know that if we gain speed with God most of the obstacle's we face in life would get plowed down.
Today I am ready to go for the big one
check out this joke: A group of friends went deer hunting and paired off in two's for the day. That night one of the hunters returned alone, staggering under an eight point buck."Where's Harry?" "Harry had a stroke of some kind. He's a couple of miles back up the trail." "You left Harry laying there, and carried the deer back?" "A tough call," nodded the hunter, "but I figured no one is going to steal Harry."
“Good actions give strength to ourselves and inspire good actions in others.”
“An unfortunate thing about this world is that the good habits are much easier to give up than the bad ones.”

what did I mean about THE HIDDEN JEWEL- its about my journey that I am looking for God and I realize that he is not that far away , Its not that I don't know him but I want to know him better.
This is a thought ( That he is not far away but we get distracted by life and sometimes he is even speaking to us but stuff gets in the way so he is speaking he is working in our lives he is doing miracles )
could it be that we have turn away from him
like I said its just a thought --- check out my videos on
one of the things that is growing inside of me is the hunger to be close to God
its seems that he is calling me to a new level
looking for some new worship music I came across Rick Pino the dood is awesome has a song called daddy it shook my world
the mane part of the song goes like this ( when I am with my daddy innocence is restored)
I KNOW THAT GOD IS UP TO SOMETHING
* It takes a long time to grow an old friend.
* It's good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it's good, too, to make sure you haven't lost the things that money can't buy.
* You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Many of life's failures are men who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

I feel like I lost my best friend :my Ipod is gone
could it be that we depend on electronic devices too much and we have become dependant and we cannot function with out them.
but in the positive end is that they are tools for ministry i use my Ipod for devotions and to spend time with God, I hate to go back to (Cd's) my time with god is not going to be dictated by if I have an mp3 player with me to talk to him.
