I came to know Jesus as my personal savior my senior year of high school through a classmate of mine who told me of the wonderful things that God did in his family through their faith in Jesus Christ. After serving Jesus during my 4 years of service in the US Air Force and in civilian life, I decided to attend a Bible College, International Bible College in San Antonio, Texas.
While in Bible College, we were constantly taught about the importance of serving God in the area of foreign missions. During our Thanksgiving break one year, I went to Mexico to visit a missionary family. One evening while we were waiting to begin the service, I felt the Holy Spirit impress on my heart that I was called to serve God in Mexico. After finishing Bible College, I got married and began to make preparations to serve in Mexico, and about 6 years later God opened up the door and we moved to Monterrey, Mexico to begin our missionary career. My wife and I enjoyed over 20 years of fruitful service as missionaries and raised our 3 children in Mexico.
After returning to the USA in 2008, one of our daughters left Mexico also and was living with us. She told us of a group that she was involved with in Monterrey, Mexico that called themselves "Hebrew Roots." She explained to me the they learned to interpret the Bible from the perspective of the Hebrew Language and the culture of Bible Days. I was rather skeptical at first, but looked at some of the web sites prayerfully and began a more exhaustive study of the Word of God and found out that much that was being taught (not all) in the Hebrew Roots perspective was correct. I have since learned that I need to see and study the Word of God from the Hebrew Roots perspective.
