About You?

I am a native from Guam. I received the Lord when I was 12 while residing there.  I was sent to San Diego, California that year, just shortly after receiving Jesus as my Lord and Savior.  It was then at the age of 12, in California that I was exposed to drugs and alcohol. Although I was a Christian, the years to follow were far from being a real follower of Christ. There were many backsliding seasons. Being a Christian and living a life acceptable to Christ was just an afterthought. At the age of 12, I wanted what any 12 year old would want. A sense of belonging, love, acceptance; just to name a few. As I got older, my desire to know God grew stronger.
 
In 1989, I returned to Guam and founded a non-profit/faith-base organization in Guam called “SILENT VOICES”, an organization that provided services to victim’s of violent crime, domestic violence, sexual assault, abuse; individuals dealing with suicide ideation and families who suffered the loss of loved ones due to suicide “SOS” (Survivors of Suicide); anyone needing help and counseling due to traumatic events.  Even during this season, my flesh sought to do what I believed a Christian should do “for the better of mankind, but deep down I still felt empty. There was a void and life became more challenging. I stayed in ministries for years, but I knew deep in my heart there had to be more. The longer I stayed in ministry, the stronger I felt convicted, realizing that I was only pleasing myself and man. Hoping that if I keep doing what the world, Christians or society expected than I would be okay. I had been involved in many ministries, from music/worship ministry for over 18 years, counseling, teaching and even the church secretary to our senior Pastor. I was living what I thought was a Christian life; doing what was expected as a Christian.  It was all good works, but I was still lacking something…I continued to ignore the void. I knew it wasn’t enough, but continued doing good, thinking it was a safe place to be. I realized years later that what I was lacking was having a real relationship with the Lord, Jesus Christ.
 
In 2006
, my family suffered the tragic loss of our 22-month-old grand daughter who was murderedDue to the failure of our system and local law enforcement violating protocol,  the charges were dropped and dismissed due to a technicality. Her case has been determined “COLD CASE” for 12 years now. It was a very painful time for my family and I.  Her death led me back to working as a first responder- victim advocacy, prevention and response. As the pain intensified, it drew me closer to the Lord; eventually leading to a complete transformation of lifestyle, thinking and real relationship with God. Although I was a Christian and serving ministries, working in the secular side of services restricted me from sharing the truth about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I wanted more! My New Life in Christ, my solid and secure relationship with Jesus desired more of him in every aspect! It wasn’t too long after her death that I was invited to a Prison Fellowship Ministry conference.  Because it was hosted by a faith-based organizations with expectation, my heart was open to receive from the Lord.
 
 “FINDING MY PURPOSE – Today, I minister at our prison. I have been a volunteer for 12 years in Prison Ministries and aftercare/ex-offender programs. I facilitate and teach bible studies, Music/Worship and Drama, Restorative Justice/The Sycamore Tree (12 years), group and individual 1 to 1 spiritual counseling and Music Therapy. All services I provide are “CHRIST CENTERED”. In 2017, I was nominated as chaplain with Prison Fellowship Guam and recently appointed program coordinator for a new Program called, “The Prisoner’s Journey”. Guam, Fiji, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea. Everyone has purpose! Over 100 inmates and their families receive Jesus as their Lord and savior every year. This was a personal goal I; not for a race or to take credit, but to keep myself accountable and stay the course of leading as many to Christ.
 
My New Life in Christ has given me a new perspective:

 
MY IDENTITY IN CHRIST: Psalm 23 – He knows my name; he formed me in my mother’s womb and today, “he knows the number of hairs in my head”; I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Whether good or bad, whatever occurred in my life, he was always there.  There is no such thing as coincidence, good or bad luck. God is always in control of my life. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Jeremiah 29:11  (NIV) 11 For I know the plans I have for you, ” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
