At age 20, Diego’s studies in computer technology landed him a job at a federally-run radio station focused on multilingual broadcasts to different ethnic groups. There he learned more about the diverse people groups of Mexico and their languages. God was preparing him! As he became involved in a local church, Diego responded to the Lord’s call to full-time ministry.
“Here we are, Lord. Send us.” Shortly after their wedding in 2010, Diego and his wife Luz humbly accepted the invitation to move from Baja California to Oaxaca, Mexico. They had met at seminary while preparing for pastoral ministry, but when they heard about the need for a recording technician, they prayerfully discerned God’s leading.
After two years of traveling throughout Oaxaca state, recording, editing, and distributing audio Scripture materials together as a couple, God blessed Diego and Luz with their first child. They started a church in Mitla, close to the recording studio. Today they have three young children, and their thriving multicultural congregation is doing outreach in a neighboring village.
We thank God for Diego and Luz! Diego continues to be an integral part of our team in Oaxaca, a servant leader in every sense of the word. He serves wholeheartedly and does high quality work—all to the glory of God. Let’s pray for more recordists for Diego to mentor, to expand the team’s work!
