About Me


My name is Kevin Sanders.  I am a follower of Jesus, pastor, blogger and husband to the most beautiful woman in the world.

I am originally from Pinson, Alabama (USA).  I spent over eleven years in the Philippines as a missionary (2002-2013).  Most people called me Kuya Kevin  when we lived there (“Kuya” is Filipino for “older brother”).

I met Mare Cris, my wife, while I was serving in the Philippines.  We moved to the USA in July of 2013 and began our current ministry at Apollo Heights Baptist Church (El Paso, Texas) in October of 2016.

About this blog . .

I started writing blog articles back in 2006. At the time I was primarily concerned with sharing the message of sexual purity to the students I interacted with. Writing about relationship issues led to the publication of two books: 

Basta LoveLife: Making Wise Relationship Decisions

Learning the Hard Way: True Stories of Heartbreak, Healing, and Hope

Both books are available at all major book stores in the Philippines.

I hope you are inspired by the articles on this blog.  Feel free to link them to your Twitter, Facebook wall, etc.

    Hi Pastor Kevin! This blog is great! I can’t remember who posted it on their facebook status, but glad I found it!

  2. Hey Kevin. I see the drawing about some type of marriage seminar. Is that something you do? Is the cartoon depiction how you relate when you speak to groups? Would your primary audience be marriage age singles and young marrieds? I found your blog by searching bible on forgiveness. Thanks.

      Hi, Patti! My wife and I attended a retreat last year. One of the speakers was Joe McKeever, a preacher and cartoonist. We had our picture taken with one of his drawings.
