Paul Finkenbinder, known as Hermano Pablo, was born in 1921 in Puerto Rico of missionary parents. He grew up speaking both Spanish and English, and the strong missionary atmosphere of his early home fashioned the course of his life and became the foundation for one of the most extensive Christian media outreaches in all of Latin America.


About Us

By using a story with an application, A Message to the Conscience reaches millions of people in more than 30 countries. Most of our messages are transmitted through secular media, and the majority of our listeners are non-Christians.

The International Center for Education in Latin America (a secular organization) recently referred to A Message to the Conscience as the second-most-effective media program in all of Latin America. To find out how this program got started, visit our history page.

The numbers change every day, but at last count Hermano Pablo Ministries 4-minute Message to the Conscience in Spanish is broadcast more than 6,000 times per day and is published in over 80 periodicals. We have a small dedicated staff who work tirelessly to distribute these messages to broadcast and print media all over the Spanish-speaking world. The staff of Hermano Pablo Ministries answers to a volunteer and independent Board of Directors made up of well-known and respected Christian businessmen and leaders.

Our devotions are very similar to actual Message to the Conscience radio and television programs and print media columns. The scripts have been translated into English and given an application for Christians. (The original Spanish version has an application which is carefully directed to non-Christians.) Spanish speakers can access the scripts of these programs in mensajes.

We receive letters almost every day from listeners who have been drawn to Christ by A Message to the Conscience. Television and radio personnel have also written to give us their impressions of the program. To read their comments, visit our testimonies page.

We currently have more than fifty-seven thousand subscribers! Spanish speakers who move away from their native countries are excited to have the opportunity to receive this daily resource in their native language. We have subscribers in Germany, Belgium, Egypt, Ethiopia, Italy and one hundred seventeen other countries. Recipients of the email messages tell us that they forward the messages on to their social circles, and those who are followers of Christ use the messages to evangelize their friends.
