These are two of the kindest, most hospitable people I’ve ever met. For the last month they’ve opened their home and their hearts to provide a place for Marlene to stay while she was in San Diego. When I was out there, they were absolutely awesome to stay with. From offering to entertain us, to allowing us to use their home as ours. We wanted to thank them in some small way, and doing these portraits was something we could do for them.
Hugo is the pastor of the Spanish Church at Oceanview. He works with another great friend (and Harley Ultra rider) Sr. Pastor Jim Baize. Hugo also is a missionary pastor working with multiple church plants all over the city. He took us to a brand new work that will hold 5 different services all day on Sunday, with 5 individual pastors and teams. It is incredible! I Tim. 3:2 is one of the passages that gives qualifications for pastors and deacons. It is very specific in what needs to be a part of their lives and spells out, “given to hospitality” as one of the items. Well, these folks pass with flying colors! Every single time we’ve been with them, they go above an beyond anything we would have expected or asked. It is humbling to see the way they give and serve. And it is no surprise that the church plants he is involved with are taught to do the same exact thing! We would just like to say a very heartfelt thank you to our friends, and extended family! Hope to see you soon; in fact y'all come to Nashville sometime so we can do the same with you.
