Humberto & Esperanza Rodriguez Saldana

I have been married to my wife, Maria Esperanza Rios, for 16 years. We have two daughters, Amitai Rodriguez Rio (15) and Alma Genesis Rodriguez Rio (5). We are involved with Edificanda Para Cristo Int, C.A.S.A. Centro Cristiano Evengelico Para Cristo and believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

I gave my life to Christ when I was 23 years old. I started playing music in church and continue to this day now with my wife. I have been a pastor at this church for the past 3 years and have seen it grow from 8 people to 130 plus every Sunday. My wife, Esperanzo, accepted Christ 22 years ago when her mother passed away. That had a big impact on her life and God opened her heart for more. She was baptized and started to play music in the church. She has been involved in the Alliance Woman’s Ministry for the past 3 years and have seen it grow from 9 to 40 churches involved. God has taken her and changed her to think outside the box and do things she never thought she could or would do.

People are coming to church, they are inviting others and souls are being saved. We visit people in our community and they come back to us for prayer and needing help (food, care packets).
