RESULTS

 

       THIRTY-ONE  shootings in THIRTY days in my city, all gang related and eleven year old kids were involved. These headlines inspired me to resign from a job I loved for fifteen years to become a full time missionary to the United States. What I feel God has asked me to do cannot be done alone.
 
          In John Ortberg's book, If You Want to Walk on Water, You've Got to Get Out of the Boat, I read, "Sometimes, in the providence of God, the end of a career is the beginning of a calling. And you have a calling. You are not a spare part – you are on a mission from God." 
 
THE MISSION THAT GOD HAS CALLED ME TO DO I CANNOT DO ALONE!
Headlines that changed my life
