About My Family

In November 2012, after more than 10 years of drug addiction, I was called to salvation and Jesus saved my life. In February 2013, I was baptized by pastor James L. Benson at the Primera Iglesia Bautista de Groveton in Alexandria, Va. I began to grow in faith and fall in love with the Word of God, seeking God's guidance for my life.

I am a native of Comerio, Puerto Rico, and Rebeca, my wife, was born in El Salvador. In January 2013, we got married and the results of that marriage are Sebastian and Sofia Santiago. We are a family who loves God and demonstrates that love by serving. Our family has experienced moments of joy and peace, as well as moments of sadness and tribulation. Each moment has been a tool to build the love of our family in faith.

About My Church Plant

September 20, 2017, Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, changing history forever. Rebeca and I were heartbroken when we visited Comerio two days after. We were in the midst of suffering, destruction and lack of resources. We left our house every day early in the morning in search of supplies to take to our people in Comerio. We prayed daily for God's provision, and He provided daily.

Rebeca and I put together a washing machine project for the city. We focused on Matthew 22:37-39. Loving the community genuinely caused people to want to hear about God. That is how One Church Comerio was born, on the foundation of love.

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 namb.net/send-me.

Pray

Our priorities are God's priorities. Pray Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. As we pray for God's will, we remember Matthew 28:18-20, and we go under the authority of Jesus to make disciples. Pray that the Spirit adds to the church those who will be saved. Jesus promised He will edify His church, and we pray for disciples and leaders committed to God. Jesus promised that He will be with us until the end, and we trust His ways and the outcome in every situation. Please pray that One Church continues being the light and the salt of Comerio. Pray for strength and resources for the ministry and our family as well. Give thanks for all these things.
