Wendel started attending Grace Chapel at the invitation of his older brother and sister-in-law, who had just moved to Tucson. It didn’t take long for him to realize that Jesus Christ was all that he had been searching for. He was saved in 1979 at the age of 17.
Unfortunately, the temptations around him caused the new Christian to turn away from God a few years later. After a failed marriage and many destructive mistakes, he asked for the Lord’s forgiveness and for help getting his life back on track.
A short time later, a close friend invited him to attend church at Calvary Tucson. Every time he attended service, he felt as though the Lord was speaking directly to him through Pastor Robert’s teachings. He knew he was home and has been attending Calvary Tucson since 2000.
Wendel has worked at various jobs in the construction field for 15 years: from landscaping to job superintendent for a custom home builder, to owning a small remodeling business.
