“I cared not where or how I lived, or what hardships I went through, so I could but gain souls to Christ."
Born in Cúcuta, Colombia, Alex came to Guatemala at the age of 19 to study Bible at the Guatemala Bible Seminary in Chimaltenango - where he received his Bible degree, with a focus in Missions.
From a young age, Alex felt God calling Him into service - and he surrendered his life to the calling.
He has two beautiful children, Matteo (11) and Emma (7) . He is a cancer survivor, and thankful for God's mercy and grace as it continues to be abundant in his life.
One of his favorite verses is Isaiah 43: 1 - 3:  "But now, this is what the Lord says— He who created you, Jacob, He who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.  When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.  For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior."
Alex is now the Life Program and Team Coordinator for STC Guatemala. He is excited about his future and ready to follow wherever God leads Him.
