    My pastor, thanks for taking me on my first missions trip when I was 15. That’s when a love for missions was born in my heart, today 43 years later I’m over Good Shepherd Ministries with close to 100 churches in Mexico and central america. Many souls have been saved and transformed. To God be the glory.

    I met “Brother Charles” as a kid around 1992 when our family moved to Fort Lauderdale, FL (from Tampa, FL and previously Puerto Rico). My dad (also a minister), Agustin Velazquez, and Brother Charles were very close friends for many years and I have very fond memories of them together. My mom, Alexandra (“Sandy”) Velazquez, was also very fond of Brother Charles and his family. I am so sad to learn that Brother Charles passed away. My dad passed away on July 1, 2017. I wish they could’ve reunited before their passing but I’m sure they are now reunited in the Lord’s glory. God bless Brother Charles and his family and friends.
