"In 2009 I was diagnosed with end-stage renal disease. I started in-center homo-dialysis immediately. These events totally changed my life. I had to give up my career teaching Spanish which I had grown to love. During this painful process, I translated from English to Spanish for some Spanish speaking patients. Kidney disease is frightening enough without having the language barrier and not being able to communicate your needs. It is out of compassion for these fellow patients that I have written this small book for Dialysis professionals."

Author of SPANISH FOR CHRISTIAN MINISTRY: Faith references Mark 16:15 (KJV) Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ said"… go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." In order to accomplish this mission we must be able to communicate with people of all Nations and Cultures. "It is out of that desire to fulfill the Great Commission that I have written this mini-book which is a small resource for those who want to reach the most who speak Spanish."
