When I lost my father to cancer when I was 14 years old, and my faith was tested. It’s the moments of crisis, where God seems most distant, that test our faith and transforms what we believe about God, our ideology, to our identity – our faith either becomes absolute or absent. I had grown up hearing that God is loving, yet I watched for years as a disease that is anything but loving claim the life of my dad.
I learned from this experience that even though way may not always understand the processes of God, we can hold tight to the promises of God. My passion is to creatively communicating the Gospel message that will compel students to hold tight to the promises of God.
