How long have you been a Christian? I accepted the Lord as my personal Savior fourteen years ago. Type of ministry you are blessed to serve in: I am a small group leader for Awana and I build the lyric slides for church on Sundays.
Favorite Scripture verse (and why): Psalms 119:37: “Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to Your Word.” There are many things in this world that distract us from God, and if we are not glorifying God, then there is no point to anything. I want to do everything to further His Kingdom.
Special “God moment” you’d like to share: I am going to Bethany Global University next year and I was struggling to decide whether to stay at home for the first year and do online, or go on campus (the college is about 14 hours away from home). I thought I knew that I was, for sure, going to do online. But one day God stopped me and showed me that that had been my plan. It was not His. For the next couple of weeks, I was really at war with my desires and God’s plan. I finally made the decision to step out in faith and trust and follow God’s will, not my own.

I admire that because there are many unreached people groups in mountainous areas and Climbing For Christ is working to reach them to tell them the Good News of great joy
