TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A local pastor is using her Spanish voice to sing God's lyrics and brings a congregation to its feet.
Pastor and singer Silvia Delacruz says she started writing songs after a particularly difficult time in her life when she was battling an illness.
With her husband Polo's encouragement, she's now releasing her first CD in Spanish, entitled "Gracias por Amarme" or "Thank You for Loving Me."
The couple serves as pastors of the Spanish-speaking El Encuentro church, which rents space at 1819 SW 21st Street. Proceeds from the CD go toward building a permanent place of worship for the church, they say.
The CD is available online at polodelacruz.org.
