Ernesto was saved in 2006 and baptized at Iglesia Bautista Mi Refugio, Taruma, Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Amanda was saved in 1998 and baptized at Cleveland Baptist Church, Cleveland, Ohio. Ernesto and Amanda met in Puerto Rico in 2013. Ernesto was in Bible college and Amanda was in her first year of teaching at the Christian school there. After some talking and a lot of praying, it was very clear that the Lord wanted them to be together; they were married in December 2014. The Lord led them in June 2016 to Gospel Light Baptist Church in Helena, Alabama, to work under Pastor Gary Bohman to gain more knowledge of the ministry. God has blessed them with one precious daughter named Esther. Ernesto and Amanda currently teach in the Christian school at Gospel Light, lead the Spanish Ministry, and serve in other ministries reaching families with the Gospel of Christ. They also have a strong desire to reach the tender hearts of children. Ernesto and Amanda are excited to serve the Lord together and follow His next steps for their lives in Bolivia.
