Favorite Bible Verse: "Matthew 6:33 - 'Seek first God's kingdom and his justice, and all these things will be given to you as well.' I love the promise of this text: if we allow God to reign over us, he'll take care of us in every way. I believe it because I've found it to be true in my own life."

Working with Mission Alive helps me to fulfill that calling by enabling such church planting work on a greater scale.”
