On March 22, 1921, my grandfather was born in Mexico. Papa was born as a premature baby. He was told by his mother he looked like a rat. They did not know he was going to live but he did live after 96 years. His story on YouTube: https://youtu.be/NMyMco_8Ek4 in Spanish.
My grandfather is living the American dream. My papa's story of his life is through the eyes of his grand daughter, me and his family.
He purchased his farm in the 1980's with every penny he saved in his life.
I grew up as I watched my grandfather be: a farmer, a father, a husband and as a pastor. I visited my grandparents each summer between the ages of 9-12 years old. I watched this retired older man wake up each morning at dawn to work on a farm. My grandmother would prepare breakfast 🍳 and make coffee @ 5am for my uncles and my papa.
My grandfather is a father to many sons and daughters in Christ including his family. The Lord is number # 1 in his life! My grandfather prayed for many folks in his home and in the deep parts of Mexico. My grandfather started a church in Reynosa, Mexico many years ago. The church still alive in Reynosa even today. My papa's life is a very interesting before he found the Lord. One of my papa's favorite mariachi song is, "One Day at a time", https://youtu.be/Jqmf_nf6uyg.
There is more to come in my blog about my papa's life.
