Faith Story

Fruto received Christ in October 2002 while he was in jail in Santiago de Veraguas. He was studying the bible inside prison when he was confronted with the truth of the Bible.

In November 2005, as soon as he came out from prison, he joined a local congregation. But, he had a burden to serve the Lord in ministry and wanted to received more bible training.

In November 2007, he took a step of faith and he left for Siguatepeque, Comayagua, Honduras to start a Bible Degree from a seminary there without having the financial support that he needed. In January 2008, Joaquin Vargas met him in Honduras and noticed that he was a leader with potential and provided a scholarship for him to finish his studies. At the same time that he was studying the Bible, he was also helping with church planting among the Lenca Indians in Honduras, helping with the ministry of Erick Sanchez, a Missions Door missionary.

Fruto met his wife Mirza, who is a Lenca Indian, in Honduras and they moved to Panama, Fruto’s homeland to work in ministry. They don’t have any children at the moment.
