Marriage can certainly have its challenges but there are so many rewarding comforts that come with it as well. Seeing strong couples lift one another up never gets old. That’s why we had to pick Miguel as our latest Difference Maker.
Miguel’s wife, Jessica, nominated him with the sweetest note. Here’s what she had to say about her amazing husband:
“My husband Miguel has the biggest servant’s heart out of any one I know and I don’t just say it because he is my husband. He has such a powerful testimony: he overcame drug addiction, jail, gang life and the life style that comes with it; he now has found Christ and been made new and uses his life experiences to pour into a program we mentor for: Reset Mentoring (ministry). We work with teens who have been incarcerated at the juvenile detention center in Williamson County. He has gone in and shared his testimony there and he mentors and speaks life into the teens in our program, showing them what Christ can do to make us new, to grow past our mistakes. He gives teens rides, has and will take them food when they don’t have any, speaks life and encouragement.
He also serves every week at our church (The Exchange Church). He shows up every Sunday and cleans the parking lot at 6 in the morning rain or shine, then he serves as a greeter, security or usher once service starts. He cleans the church every week as well and serves at our youth nights on Wednesdays. His love for the Lord oozes into everything he does. You would never know how much he does because of how humble he is.
You mention his name to anyone and they will give you the biggest smile because of the joy he brings around. He was doing work with the homeless for a while but had to put a hold on it because of our mentoring but any chance he gets to give or speak life to them He will. He has gained the reputation as the go to man whenever help is needed and like I have said he is so humble because he knows our Lord sees it all he doesn’t flaunt what he does. Yet as his wife I feel like it would be a blessing for him to get acknowledged by our community. He does all this voluntarily with the greatest joy. He really is a hidden gem to our community.”
Isn’t this a beautiful note? The love and admiration Jessica has for her husband is contagious. We can’t think of anyone more deserving than a man like Miguel. His humble approach and servant’s heart are what makes him our Difference Maker.
