My name is Gabriel, though most people just call me Gabe. I am 28 years old and I was born and raised in Houston, TX. I serve as youth pastor at the church I grew up in, Emanuel Church (Templo Emanuel) in Houston, TX. (emanuelhs.church)
I recently got married to the amazing Leyinska Marie Alicea-Rodriguez! I love to run, it’s how I connect with God and myself. I am a fan of Doctor Who (I might be obsessed), and I love to play video games. However, at the core of who I am is a follower of Jesus, everything that I do is for Him . Years ago at the age of 14, my life collided with God. And since then I’ve been on this journey of life, and have been amazed by what I seen. God is not distant or unloving, but intimate and caring, even if we don’t understand why the world is the way it is. That is why I write, to share my experiences, the reality of Jesus in my life, all in hopes that those reading may be spurred on to have that same kind of experience and faith. Keep following, live life, and let Jesus amaze you!
