My Passion:
I love God, and I love people. My passion is that we make much of our God. My prayer is that people would be changed by the message of the Gospel, leading believers to present their bodies as a living sacrifices, holy and acceptable to God, which is their spiritual act of worship. I pray that through the teaching and study of God's word, our minds will be renewed so that we are conformed to the image of God's Son, Jesus.
