Theme – Looks are deceitful; honesty is always best.
Genre – Romantic / Comedy
Tagline – 
The things two nerds are willing to do for a Mac computer.
Protagonists –

2011 – Book  “GRACE OR DISGRACE”

Yecid was never conformed to the ways church organization, institution and establishment reflected the teachings of Jesus, especially in this last century. He wrote all he, heard, learn and experience from God during 15 years of his close involvement with the church. The reading of his writing is easy and fluent. “Gracia o Desgracia” has been translated to English and has the same power and fluency as the Spanish version. Yecid has been able not only to show where he stands in Christianity and in the world but that he is also a controversial writer with lots of talent and much to tell.

Presentation by Gente Comun

The presentation of the book in the Cinemateca was a one of a kind does to the amount of people attending and supporting Yecid points of view.


In many places and different countries conferences and seminars are held in order to spread the teachings. As Yecid speaks in the seminars people have a new vision of the reality of having a spiritual live instead of a religious one.
