Joining the Family
ESPAÑOLA, N.M. – On Feb. 15, the Española Valley Bilingual Seventh-day Adventist Church welcomed a new member to their church family. After years of struggling with alcohol addiction and experiencing the pain of losing his wife, Leonard Pacheco was baptized in a beautiful and touching ceremony at the Española Valley church. Through the years, Leonard visited the church occasionally, but he wrestled to make a decision for the Lord. It wasn’t until recently that he felt convicted by the Holy Spirit.
Leonard’s mother Virginia Pacheco, sister Trish Winn, and son Leonard Pacheco Jr., were thrilled to see him give his life to Jesus.
His family had prayed for him for many years and they now love seeing Leonard enjoying his new life in Christ. He especially takes pleasure in Sabbath worship and mid-week Wednesday services. Praise God for Leonard’s decision! May God bless him as he continues to deepen his relationship with Jesus.
