Having been a bilingual educator for the past ten years, my heart’s cry has been to help and teach people. I taught and served low-income schools and high crime communities where gangs, drugs, violence, and teen-pregnancy were occurring.
Though active in the community, serving on various committees to help combat these social problems, I knew that the only hope and solution to deter these individuals from falling into society’s outcast was to have a personal relationship with JESUS CHRIST.
There are many good programs that help deal with social problems, but they only focus on the symptoms and not the root. Drug abuse, alcoholism, gang activity, teen-pregnancy, homosexuality are symptoms, whereas the root stems from inward problems such as fear, unforgiveness, bitterness, guilt, self-hatred, and past hurts. These roots and wounds are rooted because of dysfunctional upbringings, sexual, physical, and verbal abuse, rape, incest, and divorce. Only can the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ “heal these broken hearts and bind up their wounds” (Psalm 147:3). So they can then attain success and become stable citizens in society.
My aim is to provide a center where individuals can come and learn God’s Word and experience His unconditional love. Yet, also, providing social activities and extending learning classes that can help individuals succeed in life.
Your financial support and prayers will enable me to reach our future generation, and help them become all that God has called them to be.
