Hello, my name is Jose Mauricio Vicente Romero. I am from Gracias, Lempira, Honduras. I have learned to do a lot of things in my life to help me serve other people. Right now, some of the things I enjoy are sharing the Gospel, visiting communities, and studying God’s Word with different people. I am greatly encourage to be a part of an amazing team filled with incredible people that God has sent to my country to share His Word. I have learned so much from them and had the privilege of teaching them about my country and culture.
These last few years have been filled with happiness. I have a beautiful family, friends that believe in God, and a wonderful church. The church may be small in number but is big in its love for one another. It is a church that believes in what was said about the early church in Acts 2:47, “… And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
This month, something big happened to my family. We all tested positive for COVID. I was the first to get really sick and had to be hospitalized. Thank God, I was eventually released from the hospital to recuperate at home, but then my wife was hospitalized. Thanks be to God she is now at home and recovering. She is getting a little better each day. We are trusting God knowing that things like this happen so that we can see how big His love is. It has been amazing to see God’s protection and care throughout this trying time. I haven’t felt the need to question God, in fact it has been the opposite. I am filled with thankfulness and joy at being able to keep faithfully persevering. It is in times such as this that allows us to grow in our faith. We must remember to meditate on what is important, which is knowing what He did for us on the cross. It is knowing that it’s not about what we do, but what God has done for us.
I am so blessed and thankful to share this life with friends and the amazing team of 61 Isaiah, and for the love that God gives to each and every one of us.
