Every time I would see my cousin either at family get togethers or visit him in the hospital....he always tried to see the good side of his situation instead of the bad...I love & will miss ya cuz! 😘
In spite of his condition that left him paralyzed from the neck down due an early tragedy at age 19; Jose was a brave soul who believed he could do the impossible with the strength of God. Please check out his autobiography at www.joseministries.com
One of Jose's favorite passages in scripture was in the first chapter of Philippians. In verse 21, Paul says, “For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” In his own words he quotes, "I can identify with Paul. I know that heaven awaits me, but I also know that this is the only opportunity any of us have to prove ourselves to God. It is right now, even in the middle of suffering, that God is seeing what we are willing to do for Him. We will never have this opportunity again! We all need to understand how important this life is and what is at stake. I look forward to going to heaven because I know it will be a perfect place with no more suffering, but I also know that God has a purpose for my life right now, even in this wheelchair. And that is why I have dedicated the rest of my earthly life to God’s service even though I am in a body that can’t move."
Jose was an active member of Grace Community Church and shared his wonderful testimony as a youth speaker in various organizations and online at www.joseministries.com
I love you brother and will see you on the other side, your beloved sister.
