This week’s church planter spotlight is focused on Gamalier Luna. Gamalier is the lead Hispanic planter for a new BMA of Texas work in El Paso, TX. We asked him ten questions that will let you know a little more about him.
Tell us a little about your family.
My wife, Sandra Lozoya, and I have been married for 27 years. We have three daughters: Janet, 27 years old, Michelle, 23 years old, and Sandra, 21 years old. We have lived in El Paso for 20 years
How long have you been planting in your mission field?
I have been planting 5 months.
What do you see is unique in your mission field?
We have many Hispanic people who prefer to speak English. El Paso is on the border with Mexico and we have people crossing and looking for work. We also have a large U.S. military base here in El Paso.
What different people or groups do you see in your field?
I do not see many different people. El Paso has a bit of everything: Koreans, Chinese, many Hispanics, and Anglos.
How is your daily time with God?
Every day I meet with my family to have a devotional time together. We talk about our plans in the ministry and about our daughters’ issues. In general, it helps us to be united in everything.
What do you like to do in your free time?
To go out with my wife and my daughters to eat, or to walk. To be alone, I like to read a book
What is your favorite subject or theme?
My favorite subjects are comedies and Ghost Hunter.
Where is your favorite place in the world?
My favorite place to live is England.
Share a challenge you are facing right now and how we can pray for you.
We are looking to buy a house for the area where we are planting. We are praying that God gives us the best and that it is used to open a family group.
Share a praise you are excited about that we can share with others.
God has blessed us with families coming to Jesus who have taken the step to be baptized. That is reason for joy.
Please pray for Gamalier and Sandra as they continue their church planting efforts in El Paso. Pray for safety and God’s blessings upon their work.
