A short pictorial biography of the life and ministry of Pastor Victor W. Decker, February 14, 1926 - January 28, 2013. May God be glorified! Una biografía en fotos de la vida y el ministerio del Pastor Victor W. Decker. A Dios sea la gloria.

  • 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.
