This Is Your Time

After the Babylonian captivity when there were still Israelites in Persia there arose an evil man named Haman who wanted to destroy the people of God. God through various circumstances placed Esther in King Xerxes' household, and she alerted him to Haman's plans. Esther trusted God, and God worked through her to save his people.
  You can have peace today knowing that God has also placed you in your unique situation to have an extraordinary impact for him. He is not surprised at where you are. Rather, he put you there, gave you the gifts necessary for your circumsances, and will give you victory if you place your trust in him.

Always Thankful

This is the song I will never forget. When I was coming home 5 years and 2 months ago. I will never forget sitting in the back of our big van and listen to this song. Now every time I hear this song it reminds me of me coming to America (home). I know I said this before but I love saying it because it is true. I thank you so much Mom and Dad for bringing me to America. I love you both.
