Survivors include his mother, Rebecca Delgado, children, Darlene Garza and husband Steve, Samuel P. Delgado, Justin C. Delgado, Kevin Delgado; grandchildren, Stephen A. Garza, Genesis J.

Felipe accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savoir on Monday, February 12, 1979 at a Circle K convenient store in a small south Texas town. Immediately he began to have dreams of preaching in Africa. During the night, while sleeping, instead of "sleep walking," he would be "sleep preaching," standing on the bed shouting, "Come to Jesus!"

On October 2, 1982, he found himself on West African soil in the country of Nigeria. He was the speaker for various city and village crusades and seminars. He had yet at that time of ministry, ministered to more than 200 people at one setting. In attendance were 1, 215 people; hearing the gospel, receiving salvation, healing, and deliverance! Needless to say, this experience opened and ushered him into world evangelism.

Upon his return of the first overseas missions, he pioneered and pastored a church in South Texas (Laredo area) for seven years. He continued to minister throughout the United States, Mexico, Philippines, and West Africa on a yearly basis. It was not easy but thank God it worked out and the church continues today!

His global focus was primarily, interceding and reaching the tribal peoples of the world. He planted a bible institute, World Embassy Institute in Maiduguri, Nigeria (far north) for the purpose of training indigenous nationals to evangelize their areas.

His constant prayers were for the Hausa and Fulani tribes, to be established with pastors and churches. He also prayed for local pastors (Americans and Nationals) to become intercessory churches for the unfinished task...including theirs! His passion was to help churches worldwide fulfill their call to reach their communities. He believed that churches had excellent outreach programs and needed more! This is why he believed "SPONTANEOUS EVANGELISM", would be so vital to the End Time Harvest.

"Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith."
