I was born and raised in the relatively small community of Empresa, Colombia, where most families earn a living from farming and fishing. When I wasn’t planting rice or fishing for the day’s meal, I spent my time discovering God’s plan for me. My mom, dad and siblings all had a great deal to do with my vocation. They’ve always supported my desire to do good in the world and to share God’s message of love and hope with those less fortunate.
Through God’s grace and after many years of study, hard work and commitment, I was ordained to the priesthood on January 28, 2012. I look forward to sharing more of my personal journey with you.
