Hector is a great brother, he has been a faithful disciple of Jesus and member of the church in Veracruz, Mexico for 18 years. His faith has always been characterized by his unconditional service and love for the family of believers. He oversaw the church in in 2008, and currently serves in the worship ministry and as a singles sector leader. He is a great support for the leadership as he regularly prepares sermons, Bible studies, devotionals, Bible talks, as well as the discipleship of other brothers.
Héctor has a congenital visual disease (PIGMENTARY RETINOSIS), and that makes his vision increasingly limited, and some years ago he had retinal detachment, which impaired his vision further. Despite his limitations, he struggled and found a way to study and get ahead in life. Hector studied medicine and opened a neighborhood clinic that has become a staple in the community. His work as a healthcare professional has allowed him to provide care for his 76-year-old mother, Teresa, (also a disciple) and allows him to provide employment for his brother, Gregorio. As a result of the pandemic, his finances have been drastically reduced because nearly 70% of his patients are unable to attend appointments due to an inability to pay for services.
The church in Veracruz has been assisting Hector and his family with meals to help with the financial constraints, but their resources are limited, and Hector and his family still have many needs. The family is requesting $600 to help with their expenses.
