    • Why Ministry? There is a strong sense of calling to vocational ministry that I have felt even as a child. In a sense, I can't do anything else. Not because of lack of skills or experience, but God's calling in my life compels me to ministry. It is a matter of obedience to God.

    • Why Ministry? At age 15, I lost my Dad to suicide. This tragic incident in my life left me with many questions. Why God? Why do this to a Christian teenager? Why cause all this pain and hurt? Yes, through these tough questions, I saw God working and showing me the love He pours out, even in my suffering and hurt. Sometimes our lives get interrupted with unplanned things, but with God nothing is impossible to get through. His love and grace will be sufficient, and he will bless and use us if we allow Him to.
