On June 28th I celebrated 30 years of serving God as an ordained minister. They have been years of a great deal of experiences of success and challenges. Thank God I can rejoice in the outcome. After many days of preparations the gathering took place. I had visitors from several places from the metro area and beyond. Our main messenger for the night was Pastor Tom Lovan from Morningside Lutheran Church and Director of the Asian Ministries. It was a real honor to count with his participation and attendance. I had several pastors who in one way or another were participants on my ministry along the years. I received letters from Pastor Bill Bruggeman, from Pastor Bruce Nelson, and Barb Dejonge Overline. We showed three video messages. One from Pastor Mark Vander-Tuig, LCMC Service Coordinator, Kip Tyler Chair of the LCMC BOT, and from Pastor Juan Vazquez from Family of God Lutheran Church in Zapopan Jalisco. And the presence of our pastor in Rio Bravo Victor Barbosa. Also I was surrounded by friends and members of our congregations too.
Make out if this gathering a historic meeting. There were several recognitions for the congregations and pastors. In addition to that one of my members in my previous ministry from Saltillo Coahuila, Professor Gerardo Laguna a great Musician came to perform a few songs with another person using a piano and a Clarinet. As we ended we offer a great banquet to the people present. It was a magic evening and I give honor and Glory to our King Jesus.
