Up-date From Fairbanks

Last Saturday I celebrated two weeks since I came to Fairbanks Alaska to make this great city my own. It seems like every day I get confirmations that we indeed heard from God. We are now officially members of the Lily of the Valley Church of God in Christ.


            My wife started working on August 19, all of the children are in school, they are involved in sports, Angelo starts his second year in college on September 4th and it looks like I will be working in a week. The interview process went very well and they already called my references. At this point is a matter of waiting for the Criminal Background to come clean and I am back to having a job.


            The opportunities to minister are countless here; the favor of God is evident. My daughters are already involved in the dance ministry at the church; last night they rehearsed with my wife until about two in the morning. My wife has also connected very well with the women in the church. Angelo already started singing with the Worship Team and I am set to sing and preach the third Sunday in September. I am truly overwhelmed by God’s love.

An independent thinker with a profound call to see the orthodoxy of the church and passion for Christ manifesting together. Angel was born in Brooklyn, New York in April of 1968, he was raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where he earned his B.S. degree in Sociology with a minor in Education from the Inter American University in San Germán in 1991. That same year he moved to Jacksonville, Florida. After working construction jobs for a year and learning the English language, his first job working with foster-care children in the capacity of youth care worker was with Jacksonville Youth Sanctuary in September of 1992. With JYS he was promoted several times as group home supervisor, legal caseworker, and program director. While in Jacksonville, Angel studied a couple of martial arts styles. After earning his black belt, he became the founder of Good Fight Ministries as he used martial arts as an instrument to preach the gospel. In 2004 Angel was selected Martial Arts Instructor of the Year for the State of Florida and in 2005 Angel was inducted in the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame where he also received the Christian Spirit Award. In July of 2005 Angel accepted his call to pastor a bilingual church in Winton, NC where he served for a couple of years. Five months later he lost his first wife to cancer in December of that same year. This initiated a deep valley of suffering in his life, a mountain of costly mistakes and the embracing of lifestyles of sin that are well documented through this blog. In August of 2012 Angel moved to Fairbanks Alaska with his wife Rayette Casiano and six children who are now adults. In Alaska, Angel continued his social work-related career and his ministry of preaching, teaching and writing. Angel is the author of two books, Hope for the divorcee: Forgiving and Moving Forward and 7 Banderas de Esperanza: La Bendición de Yokdzonot. In January 8th of 2020 Angel and his wife moved to Arizona.
