One of the first times that I volunteered was for a summer camp at my church. At this camp, I was assigned to the craft station. Every morning we were in charge of gathering the materials to make the craft kit’s needed for that day 's crafts, and
The pastor broke the silence by making a few announcements about various activities: a dinner at so and so’s house after service, a Krispy Kreme fundraiser for the youth trip, the total offering taken in Sunday school and so on and so forth. Following this was something totally new again. Pastor Neil asked the members to stand and recite the Apostles Creed with him. I’d never heard of the Creed, let alone knew the words to it. So I listened as the voices, young and old, high and low, recited what they believed in and how they interpreted the Holy Bible.
But I didn’t knew this until God’s Word was explained to me through those first weeks I started to visit this church. I remember counting up the days after my conversion, because I started to see the world through Him. God kept revealing His Word into my life and strengthening me through my college years, my new work and my new responsibilities as a later youth

We had been going to church together for five months. Then, the two missionaries that had baptized us were sent back to Utah, their home.

That work ethic has been reflected through academic letters, band letters, placement in debate meets, leadership positions, and scholarships earned in high school. My work ethic was also reflected, as I became a recipient of the nationally recognized John Philip Sousa Band Award. The heart instilled by my parents also led to experiencing a taste of employment within my dream career field. On my own accord, after volunteering for a year, I found myself working as an intern at Crossroads Church. Not knowing what I truly wanted to do in the realm of music, I used the opportunity I was given to work in the field of Technical Arts.
This church has been around for quite a while and has done a lot of healing in my life. Everything I do now since I got saved is just going to be
A love that parents have passed onto their children for generations in my family. Throughout the years growing up since that day I went to various youth groups, masses, and retreats but it wasn’t until my church sent me on a mission trip that I really understood what the love of God was. It was the Summer of my Freshman year in highschool and I was all packed and ready to make the long drive to

Before immigrating to Alaska, our family gathered every night to Worship. After emigrating, due to busy schedule of my parents, Worship on Sunday, became the only Worship in my life. I was born into a Christian family. Throughout the years, I’ve heard many sermons and attended various bible studies. Also, I received the privilege to enhance my knowledge at the seminary.
Enhancing My Roots Being Mexican-American has been such a blessing to me. Growing up I would feel embarrassed to have brown skin and to my speak my first language, which is Spanish. I would feel jealous hearing the other kids speak English so well as I struggled more and was placed in English Language Development. I would detest to get pulled out of class and get asked trivial questions like “what is this?” when it was a simple book.
