About My Family

My family and I seek in all to obey the Lord, that's why we are working in church planting ministry. Yordania is my wife. Our daughter, Josary, is 8 years old. Please keep us in your prayers.

About My Church Plant

We are currently planting Family Baptist Church in Santurce, which is a municipality of San Juan, Puerto Rico. We pray for partners in this divine challenge.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at


We ask for you to pray for good health and wisdom to know and obey the voice of God. Please also pray for partners to continue expanding the kingdom.


In addition to praying for us, you can participate in our ministry as a partner in church planting. Contact us for more details.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
