Just as the Spirit led Jesus into the desert for fasting, prayer, and ultimate victory over Satan, Armando’s comforting words throughout this devotional remind us that ‘Jesus made it out of the desert, and so will you.’ Armando’s passionate desire to serve the Church and his community combined with his unique experience as both a pastor AND a licensed mental health counselor makes him a trustworthy guide for all those journeying with Jesus through a personal desert of loss and grief.”
