Ismael & Esmirna Lopez
Ismael and Esmirna Lopez currently reside in Imperial, NE where they minister to a population of Hispanic believers and continue to build disciples within their church family. They also continually support members of their community as the Lord brings different needs to their attention.
Pastor Ismael also comes to Holyoke on Sunday afternoons to lead a Spanish-speaking service at First Baptist Church with a large attendance of Spanish speaking individuals from this community. This congregation has grown over the years since it was founded in 2010 and Pastor Ismael and his family continue to seek ways to ministry to the individuals of Holyoke  and share the love of Jesus with them.  The church service they lead on Sunday evenings begins at 5:30pm with fellowship and a meal afterwards. 
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, leadership from Vida and the Lopez family were leading a youth program on Monday evenings during the school year for the youth in the Holyoke area. This ministry, which was starting to really grow, was proclaiming the gospel of Christ and teaching the youth about Christ our Savior and our Heavenly Father through fun, engaging activities, will start back up this fall when school resumes.  Stay tuned in here or on the Spanish Studies page, under our Ministries section, for updates on the Vida Abundante studies.
