So it continues…

A dream born in Pilsen…with a road filled with mishaps and scars, triumphs and loss…misfortunes leading to fortunes…amazing memories and encounters… Nothing can stop it…Who can stop something only God put in me to begin with? I am sitting here in my office in Nashville, looking back…trying to make sense of this all…”There is no greater loss then to never try at all”

A dream that took me on a journey to South Florida…Rocked my life inside out! Met some of the most amazing people ever. Because of the people I was surrounded with I feel like I can lead any task, gig, project, and do it well…Opened my eyes to a whole new depth of field…global awareness, love for people, love for God, love for what is right! Forever in debt to that place…

A dream that led me, my amazing companion and my 2 boys to Nashville TN…I am not gonna lie, it’s scary to leave everything we know behind(again) for a place where you start from the bottom…No job, house, nor security…just a passion for the things we were wired to be passionate about…Many say it’s insane…and yeah I agree too…But there is no other way, but this way. I hope you stay tuned to our journey here on this blog…this is the real deal for us…

and no matter what happens, know this…God continues to be God…and he orchestrates our journey with guides, bridges, detours, strangers and more…Sometimes it’s the people you “least” expect that will direct you towards the road that will lead you to your destiny….  Be well…

Hasta la victoria…Siempre…

I took some time off these past few weeks to be with my girl Reina and our 2 boys. We took a road trip to relax, to examine, to dream, and just lay low for a while and it was great. It also brought us to this crossroad of life and ministry…

I still remember the day I left Chicago to journey down to South Florida. Diego was only 6 weeks old at the time. He is now 2.5 yrs old, and we’ve added another little guy to the equation, Zion Max since…Being here at Life Pointe Church has marked my life in a very significant way and words are not enough to describe it. We made some life long friends, we’ve shared life with so many people here at LPC, we’ve experienced God in the lives of others and in ours as well. It is taking me forever to write this cause there is so much I wanna say. I am just so grateful for the husband, father, friend, leader, artist I have become, and I owe tons of that to Life Pointe Church and a great friend, Travis Johnson. Bro, you have challenged me beyond expectation. You believed in me and in my calling far beyond what I would’ve dreamed…But like you said bro, this is only the beginning…

Yesterday Reina, myself, Diego and Zion said farewell to Life Pointe Church.  It was really tough to share how grateful we are. I tried to be tough and macho on stage, but the tears slowly creeped up on me. You guys became family, you took us in, made us yours, you embraced our boys, you will forever be in our hearts. We blame Life Pointe Church for our departure. Why? because you guys Inspired us, believed in us, brought the best out of us, and encouraged us to be a light to all the world… So now we are ready. Travis said it best Sunday morning, the Santoyo’s are not leaving, we’re sending them to the world. We had the coolest of the coolest times here at LPC… We helped build a village for crying out loud!!!

Someone asked if I was leaving to be part of another church? An amazing job waiting for me elsewhere? Going back to Chicago? Going to Cambodia? Did I get signed?(not yet), did we get tired of LPC? None of the above. LPC is the most amazing job I have ever had… Reina and I are venturing off to a city that has been in our hearts for many yrs.  Reina and I have tons of dreams and passions that burn in our hearts, and we’ve reached a place in our lives where we are ready to be revolutionaries and pursue them. So we’re taking time off to  lay low, focus on our family, organize our passions and dreams and thoughts, and run at them full force. There is no stopping us!!!  No, I don’t have a job yet, nor a place to live yet, but we know, believe and have faith God will open the doors that need to be open for us. ( if you know of any? let us know. LOL) … Biggest lesson learned; The day we left on our road trip, I fed our little goldfish but half way down to Atlanta I realized we had no one to feed it again…dang! So I expected to come home to a house smelling like rotten fish…To my surprise I walked into the house 2 weeks later and he was still alive. I rushed to feed him. He was swimming super slow…but now he is back to normal…I thought…If God can take care of this little fish for 2 weeks, how much more us his children? He calls us all, I guess some are afraid he won’t show up…but he will…

We are headed to Nashville TN to pursue the things in our hearts,  share our gifts and make a difference on this planet. We’re gonna give it a shot! We are so freakn excited!!!Special thanks to our life group for pushing us over the edge to pursue our dreams, Travis for having world-changing conversations with me( we’re still not done bro), Life Pointe Church for setting our hearts on fire and bringing out the best in us, and a very special Chi-town couple who was the bridge and Connection without even knowing it!!! “World Domination!!!”

Here is my final thought and food for thought…”Fear paralizes you if you allow it, but Faith sets you free and gives you wings”…
