MARCH IS COMING

Hello friends, family.

Many of you already know this, others may not, but for a long time I have been serving with YWAM (Youth with a Mission), an international organization that is mobilizing young people from all over the world to bring the gospel and the love of Christ to the most remote places and the largest cities as well, I have been working for two and a half years in Mexico City, working mainly in the fight against human trafficking, which unfortunately is a very huge reality in my country and the whole world, that makes our efforts look so tiny sometimes, but by taking a step back and seeing everything with a different perspective I think we are making giant waves.

In a very special way the month of March has become a very important month for me, because in this month I remember events that have marked my life to this day.

MARCH IS COMING is the name of the first record I ever wrote with my incredible friends who became brothers a few years ago, the band was called Evergreen, in case you do not believe you can download our last album here for free: https://evergreenbanduk.bandcamp.com/

But when we were trying to decide a name for our album a few months before it came out, we could not have a better idea than that title (MARCH IS COMING) because somehow we knew that when this record came out it would change the rest of our lives and so It did.

we tried hard to look cool....ish

Now March is coming again.

A great reason to write this letter is the longing to share with you the excitement and joy that God is allowing me to start a new adventure, an adventure that maybe some of you know already, but that I am sure will change the rest of my life. On March 11 of this year I'm going to be marrying my best friend! In a beautiful forest promising each other and God that every single breath till the last of them will be to protect her and love God with our whole heart.

My beautiful friend is called Raquel and I have had the fortune to meet her day by day here in our city, our story, perhaps unconventional, has become a beautiful testimony of redemption and the fidelity of God.

Raquel and I plan to continue in full time ministry because we know that God has something incredible prepared for this city, we will continue trusting everyday for God's provision, always getting amazed to see how in one and a thousand different ways God always answers.

Last year was a pretty tough year that taught us a lot about ourselves and about learning how to always depend on God, we are ready to fight and see victories this year.

We believe that God has a very special time prepared for us to speak as marriage, give us vision, strength and above all continue to nourish our identity. Because we are full-time missionaries we may not have a big budget (in fact it's incredibly tiny) for our wedding, but honestly it does not afflict us at all, because friends and family will travel from different continents just to be with us on that special day but above all we know that God will be there.

God challenged us to dream that Raquel and I could go very very far in the middle of nowhere to listen to what God has for us as a family for the next few years, to have a quiet time and to make symbolic the promise that God is giving us, that our lifes will always be an adventure.

Thinking on where is far enough and peaceful enough to shortly step away from this beautiful chaos called Mexico City, to be able to hear God's voice clearly and rest, we knew that there was no better place than ICELAND and this is the plan:

1. Get married.

2. Travel to Iceland.

3. Rent a mini camper with enough space for 2 people and make it our home for 2 weeks.

4. See the God's creation and get inspired by it in the calmness and peace he has for us.

5. Return to Mexico and fight for this city as one.

Through this letter we would like to ask all of you to be praying for us in this new season ahead of us, but God also is also working a lot in us (especially in me) that if we really want to fully depend on Him, sometimes God calls us to be vulnerable with others, tell them about our dreams and ask for help, at this point we are in need of 4,500 thousand dollars to:

- Cover some wedding expenses.

- Also a week before we get married, we want to go to Mazatlan to work on one of the biggest carnivals around the world using a virtual reality experience to fight against human trafficking.

- To cover the expenses of the honeymoon.

We would love for you to be part of this dream, if you feel that God is calling you to this and would like to cover us in prayer and support us economically, please write to us personally, if you have more questions or want to receive more news from us, please contact us, we love you! :)
