  • Muchas veces, durante el camino, uno puede perder el animo, las fuerzas (humanamente hablando), mientras el espíritu se aferra y fortalece en nuestro Señor. Vidas como la del Ps. Victor son escritas para mostrarnos cuan fiel puede ser Dios. Vidas llenas de días que no pueden lograr otra cosa que nuestros corazones miren a nuestro Dios y lo glorifiquen. Gracias Señor por este hombre de Pennsylvania, porque la bendición del ministerio que le encargaste, hasta hoy, aun sin habernos conocido, impacta nuestras vidas a través de su legado. Podemos tener el honor de ser sus hermanos, y decir hoy... GRACIAS.
