Always Remembering Tony Mendez

April 2, 2017 will always be an unforgettable day for us as the late Pastor Tony Mendez went with the Lord. Our brother! A son. A husband and amazing dad. A Mendez backbone! A pillar! A pioneer for our family! A powerful Pastor and father of the faith to many. We will never forget how powerfully God used you to plant such depth in the hearts of many.

But to us, we hold so dearly and intimately. I will miss my big bear hug that almost broke my glasses and neck every time– YOU GIANT!!!! LOL.

We all miss that in every way. Your laughter and life. God’s got you and is holding us tightly. I listened first to your beautiful wife minister LIFE today when she was feeling the grave inside. I then stood in the presence with my husband, your beloved brother minister on the resurrected power of Christ out of that grave!

Some of the greatest people come out of that grave! Jesus paved the way! Death could not hold You down. For just when the enemy thought this would perhaps stop the gospel this only ADVANCED IT! We continue to run the race together, fight together, love together, minister together and grow in grace together! Our family is stronger than ever now. Anthony … We will ALWAYS have you in every step and moment knowing you are only waiting for us! We love you forever!!!! You would be so proud just as I am of these pillars of faith! β™₯οΈπŸ™πŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½

I cannot wait until my new book is released RISE ABOVE ADVERSITY! It is a special piece dedicated to our family. It means a lot to me as I know the Spirit of God prompted me to share when all we could do is learn to rise above our greatest adversity.

To God Be The Glory!!!

Forever in our hearts.
