I was born in Venezuela, and moved with my family to the United States at age 6. I grew up in a Christian home with parents that loved, and still love to share about God with all they meet. Living with missionary parents, and being exposed to God’s Word, I wholeheartedly made the decision to repent of my sins, and believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
Years later, I graduated from High School, and attended Word of Life Bible Institute. It was that special year, that I gladly accepted the call of God to go into foreign missions. Moreover, reading missionary books at Word of Life, I became interested in Missionary Aviation. Like the books I read, sharing God’s News with people in remote and isolated parts of the world, is what I feel a passion for. Though my wife and I consider ourselves missionaries while we are here in the U.S. After I graduated from the one year program at Word of Life Bible Institute, I then attended the five year Missionary Aviation program at Piedmont Baptist College. The summer before my senior year, I went for six weeks to the jungles of Papua New Guinea, while Hannah went to Morocco Africa. After our short term missions trip, we both felt the confirmation to serve overseas. Four months later on December 12, 2009, we got married!
After graduating from college, I began working for the airlines in order to pay off the student loans. During those two years of working for the airlines, my wife and I began to attend a church in Winston-Salem called Calvary Chapel Fellowship. We truly enjoyed serving and worshiping there. Later, Calvary Chapel became our sending church. Though my job as a mechanic on airlines helped tremendously to pay off our debt, it was not giving me the experience I needed to fly and maintain mission planes. With God’s leading, and the encouragement of Calvary Chapel, we moved to Compass Aviation in Shelby NC. It was there, that I began to gain experience as a Missionary pilot/mechanic.
After two and a half years at Compass Aviation, the Lord led us visit the jungles of Rus Rus Honduras on a survey trip. We fell in love with the people of Rus Rus and surrounding villages. We helped with the medical brigade at the jungle hospital, and got to minister to 1,200 people in seven days. While there, we began to pray for the Lord to open the doors for us to go full time to Honduras. After our trip to Honduras, we officially joined Missionary Air Group. We are now traveling around with the goal of sharing with churches and individuals with the goal of allowing an opportunity for them to partner with us. I will be flying missionaries, medical teams, medicines, emergency medical evacuations, and much more. Please pray with us, that the Gospel would effectively reach Honduras though the work that Missionary Air Group does by providing medical assistance to an area of 25,000 Miskito Indians.
