As you make your end of year giving, consider financially joining us in what God is doing in Miami.
Sandi and I have set a goal of $10K by December 31. Every dollar donated is doubled by City To City Miami! We are especially looking for those who might partner with us at $30-$50/month – that’s less than a tall coffee at Starbucks a day.
If 4 people committed to $50/month, we would meet our end of year goal!

After serving in Peru, South America for nearly a decade, we moved back to the United States with a dream to plant a church in America.
September 12, 2014
To help evaluate our desire to plant a church, we went to Mission To North America Church Planter Assessment. And on this date, God confirmed our call and the MNA assessors fully recommended us for church planting. At assessment, we met Danny & Kimberly Iverson, who connected us with Bob Cargo and his church planting training program at Perimeter Church.
April 20, 2015
Bob Cargo formally invited our family to join Perimeter Church’s two-year church planting program, allowing us to re-acclimate to the United States and get some of the best training.

Moved to ATL!
October 28-30, 2015
Bob organized a meeting among key Hispanic leaders from all over the country to come to Atlanta to discuss the future of ministry and church planting among Latinos. Two key things happened for me at this meeting:
(1) Allen Thompson said, “If we are going to reach the next generation of Latinos and train its leaders, we must figure it out in Miami.” When he said that, a bolt of lightening with through my body, and I knew at that moment that I had to be part of what God was doing in Miami.
(2) I met several of the leadership from Crossbridge Church Miami (PCA): Felipe Assis, Jesse Carbo, & Henry Rojas.
December 12-16, 2015
The Crossbridge team invited us to explore Miami to see if it might be a good place for us to plant a church. We fell in love with the city and saw the great need for planting gospel-centered churches in one of the most unreached and challenging cities in America.
April 19-22, 2016
We went back to Miami to be assessed for church planting a second time, this time by City To City.
June 29, 2016
Crossbridge Church & City to City invited us to plant a church with them in Miami.

Just reviewing all these events reminds me of how much we have to do before the summer. Yet, we can’t wait to be in the city that God has been preparing us! With your financial gifts, we will be able to bring the hope of Christ to Miami.
May 2017 be your best yet as you begin the new year in the Lord!
