When I was 17, I had this dream that I was serving and helping build houses with people of different color skin. The next night I had another dream with the same people I had been serving with in a classroom where people had come from all over the world to teach us. I woke and had this strong feeling that God wanted me to go to Tijuana. I looked online for Bible schools in Tijuana and that is how I found YWAM and Homes of Hope.
When I was getting onto the bus, preparing myself for a 32 hour ride to Tijuana, I thought, “What am I doing? I don’t have any money. I don’t know anyone there.” I kept thinking these questions until the first class in the Discipleship Training School. The leaders asked us to introduce ourselves and when it was my turn, I stood up and everyone turned and looked at me. And in that moment I realized that they were the same people from my dream. It was in that moment that I realized that God was calling me for something greater and that he has a plan for my life.
In the 5th week, a leader came to me while I was eating lunch and he asked how I am doing with my finances. I told him “I am really praying and trusting God to provide.” He told me that all of the fees and payments have been taken care of with scholarship. When he told me this, I put my head on the table and was giving thanks to God. I was overwhelmed and shaking and in that moment I knew that God had put this passion in my life and was providing for it through this scholarship.
Right now I am working in Mexico. I am using those tools and skills that I have learned here at YWAM in my own country because it is my own culture, it is my now language. but my desire is to go to every country to bring this peace and joy and what I have learned at YWAM to every nation of the world.
The needs for my country is material. But I think even behind that is a mental poverty of not understanding the potential they have. My desire is to help them understand and see their potential what they have in their hands and how they can help one another.
One weekend, I was building a house for a family. While we were working, I started talking to this young man while build the roof of his house, and he asked me, “Gallo, how can I be like you? How can I be involved in the same things you are involved in?”
I asked him, “What are your dreams? What has God placed in your heart?” He said, “I would love to open a music school for the street kids.” So from there we began to teach music. And serving is really contagious. So, when I shared that with him, he has shared that with others in the community and you can see how it is growing.”
The skills and tools that YWAM has given me has pushed me, has encouraged me, has equipped me…through school, through scholarships, through great leaders, to be able to fulfill those dreams that he has placed in my life.
In my neighborhood it is normal to see kids my age, teens fighting on the streets, smoking and drinking. It hurts me to admit this but in my past I was also fighting and smoking and drinking. Me and this guy grew up together and he died on the streets. Had I not taken him with me, he would still be here today. I feel guilty because of what happened to my friend. If it were not for me and how I was involved, he would still be here with his family.
When my friend died, I found a guitar in his room that he had never played. I picked it up and found that I loved playing it. Music distracted me from the friends and streets and life I had before. But I was feeling really alone. I was telling God that, If it is my time, just take me. I have no reason to live.
When I first met Gallo, I saw him as very inspiring. He serves a lot of people and helped a lot of people in the community. I felt like he was an older brother to me. Since then I wanted to follow in his footsteps.
After meeting Gallo, I realized I can do something. I would really like to take all of those who need help, who are hurting, and through God and through music help them to be free to take that step to go forward in their lives. I want to get kids off the street and I want to give that hope to them. I thought my life was over. But YWAM gave me hope and has given me a reason to live and I need to pass that on. And like God says, “we need to give thanks and pass what we have on to others,” and I want to make that happen.
