"1 Thessalonians 1:4-5: "Knowing, brethren beloved by God, His choice of you; for our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction; just as you know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake."

God has been at work with me ever since and He is still orchestrating events involving relationships, families, friends and individuals in my life. My transformation through Him is a reflection of Jesus is a long process of small changes, which means God’s work may at times seem slow to some. As a believer for more than 10 years, I like to share stories about the Lord’s dramatic intervention in my life.

Through the involvement at connect group, He strengthened my faith, I’ve built a stronger relationship with Him and it allowed me to grow by going out of my comfort zone knowing that He provides, rescues, and heals which is absolutely reassuring.

Through the Holy Spirit, He has helped me discern that He also works in ways that may seem inconsequential. And through His grace, God shows me that He has a purpose for everything that comes into my life—including friendships, jobs, situations, and conversations. Nothing is trivial. I have experience God in action, that I don't have to wait for Him to do something big in my life for He is a big God."
