My whole world changed when my father died in 2004. I was not walking with the Lord then, and I felt that God was punishing me by taking my father away. Ironically, that is when my search to find God began. It has been a journey. I have not only discovered a relationship with God but have discovered my calling in life as well – to become a teacher.
Through many peaks and valleys, God led me to BBC where I earned a degree in Biblical Studies. Since then, God has fulfilled the desire of my heart by giving me a job as a religion teacher. I love my work! God has carved out the best mission field for me right here in my classroom. Every day, I have students share their struggles and questions with me which opens the door for me to point them to Jesus.
I am tremendously grateful to BBC for preparing me to be a teacher. From my Bible classes to my Child Psychology course, BBC trained me to serve children. By God’s grace, I plan to start a master’s program at BBC soon. I want to be the very best teacher I can be, and I believe furthering my education will help me do just that. I am excited to see how the Lord will use me in my ministry!
