Hello my name is Marco.
At the age of 15 to 16 years old, I met God. It was my brother who told me about him, since he was the first to know of God. Before my brother talked to me of God I was a very depressed person and had even attempted suicide. When my brother told me about God's truth, at that time, I did not think God was very important. Sometimes I went to church and other times I did not. I went when wanted to. One day I went to practice singing and playing the guitar at this church, but the church was not there. They said the church had separated and closed. So I went away from God. Time passed and my life was becoming harder with friends, alcohol and many things that were destroying me. God knew I was not interested but He saw me. There was a day when I just wanted to end my life. After work, I went home carrying a new CD. I did not know what it was. Upon returning home I went to my room and cried like you can not imagine. When I heard the CD I brought with me, something happened to me, and the thoughts of ending my life vanished. It was a CD of Christian music, and the song I heard was An Angel Cries.
After that, I had several experiences with different churches, but was not involved in them for a long time until my sister invited me to the Church of the Nazarene. The first thing that caught my attention was the missionaries. I was curious and asked about them. Soon I was attending the church attending my first Encounter with God where the Lord gave me a call. It was clear what I was supposed to do. I attended the leadership classes, and in another Encounter, I start talking about my call.
Time passed and there was another conference where God was even clearer in His purpose for me. I began to pray and fast. It was at a youth camp in Pedernales, Ecuador. The pastor began to speak at the time of the altar call and said those with the call to missions should come forward. I went and said, "Lord have your way." In the church in a time of prayer God spoke to me and said, "Plough and plant the land. And what you see, that will be your reward. "And what I saw was a future family. I saw my future wife and my children. It is something I had never experienced.
And God has called me. I'm here ready to do His work to rescue lost souls for God.
