<strong>Samuel and Violeta Sotelo</strong><br><em>Cicero Spanish</em>

Samuel y Violeta Sotelo - Location Pastor

Samuel y Violeta Sotelo, originarios de México, no imaginaban que Dios bendeciría a una pareja como ellos, con el privilegio de servir a otros a través de la salvación, bautizos, y crecimiento espiritual. Un grupo de estudio bíblico se convirtió en la congregación que llevan hoy. Aun en medio de circunstancias difíciles, el ministerio de nueve años, sigue creciendo gracias a la fidelidad de Dios. Junto con el amor y apoyo de la congregación, su familia espera continuar haciendo un impacto para Cristo.
