In the 1980s we traveled to Nicaragua several times to sing with our brothers and sisters in Christ. We were the guests of First Baptist Church of Managua, CEPAD, and, specifically, the Parajon family ~ Gus was serving as a doctor, as pastor of the church, and as president of CEPAD. Joan was directing the choirs at the church and in the men's prison near Managua, and would combine both groups for concerts at the church and at the National Theater. "Servir a Dios" was born because Joan told us not to come back to Nicaragua until we had recorded our songs in Spanish. Thus "Servir a Dios" was created in 1987.
In commemoration of the 25th anniversary of this recording we dedicate this collection in memory of Dr. Gustavo Parajon (1935-2011) and in honor of Joan Parajon as she retires as choral director at Primera Iglesia Bautista de Managua, July 2012.
Qué es lo que pide Dios de ti? (What Does the Lord Require of You?) is a recording made by First Baptist Church in 2007.
