I am a factory worker. I came to Christ through a Billy Graham crusade to which my grandmother took my sister and me. I now play my 12-string guitar in both our English and Spanish worship services at the church. The "ABC/DTS graduate" means that I graduated from Arizona Bible College 'magna cum laude' and from Dallas Theological Seminary. I got "The Map and Compass Award" from Scottsdale Bible Church for getting my carload lost so many times on College and Career outings. I haven't changed much. We are proud cat owners of a Domestic Shorthair tabby, "Sophie," who was a kitten abandoned at a busy intersection in Atlanta.
