And Let the Journey Begin!

5SEvents, News1 Comment

After having worked alongside Christian Life Center ( for 7 years, where God prepared and molded us, He is now calling us to make the big step. Our hearts are filled with sadness, leaving so many people we’ve grown to love, and at the same time with expectation of embracing the call of God. His Glorious Plan is much higher than what we can think of and we are so humbled and privileged to be part of it. Our prayer is as David’s in one of his Psalms:
“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing.”Psalm 143:10
As founders of Five Stones International Ministries, we will be moving to Florence, South Carolina in July of 2016 to start the ministry there believing God will be adding to the Church those people who will be saved (Acts 2:47). We will be posting updates of our journey here for those of you who want to follow up with us. We are so thankful for all the prayers and support of so many. Please feel free to navigate through our website to learn more about Five Stones and if you have further questions or comments, contact us .
Blessings to you!


Thank you CLC. It is here at CLC that 7 years ago our American Story began. Coming from so far away with an 8-month-old baby, we had no idea of what God had in store for us… Harvey being our first home, where gunshots and loud Mexican music could be heard sometimes during the night, changed a little bit our perspective of how the “American Dream” looked like in our mind. But God chose those two years in that neighborhood to show us how to be satisfied in Him, and to wait on Him. He then took us to Park Forest, where he showed us that “yes!” it is possible to live debt free, even in this country. It is here at CLC that we experienced the supernatural provision of God, when everything we needed was always provided just on time. Living away from the entire family has been something hard and painful at times, but it is here at CLC that we experienced the love of this new family. A family that helped us feel loved, and cared for. It is here, through CLC, that God chose to ordain us as pastors. We will never forget that day, when something spiritually supernatural happened deep inside of us. It is here at CLC that our last two babies were born and that I personally experienced the love and help of beautiful women, who would cook for us, so that I could rest and take care of my baby. What a beautiful act of love that is! It is here at CLC that my husband learned English and was challenged for the first time in his life to preach in another language. It is here at CLC that we learned to combine different cultures together and to learn from each other. It is here at CLC that we entered the new “bilingual world” and learned to work as a team to make a message alive in two different languages and cultures, both in the same service. It is here at CLC that we received such accurate prophecies that would carry us, guide us, and comfort us. CLC, you have been used by God in many ways, to bless our lives beyond what we can express. THANK YOU! Pastors Jerry and Chris, we are forever grateful to you. We have learned so much from you, not only from what you do, but from who you are. Thank you! We love you.
