Then I worked for five years with the government of the state of Zulia and at the age of 31 I decided to respond to God's call by entering the seminary of the diocese of San Cristobal, where I was sent by my bishop to study philosophy. After finishing philosophy my bishop proposed to send me to study theology in Rome at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, a proposal that I accepted with gratitude, at present I am in my second year of theology after having completed the second year of the first cycle.

I thank God for all the people who make it possible for so many students from different parts of the world to have the opportunity to be formed in these spaces destined for the service of mission and evangelization".
