From Alona: “I am grateful to be a recipient of your ministry. It changed my life forever and gives me confidence wherever I go. It does not lead me only to know Christ personally, the most beautiful thing happens to me, but also to receive the calling He prepared me to do. I can’t express it all in words how he called me to be a missionary in Zamboanga City Philippines, teaching Muslim kids to have knowledge of who Christ Jesus is, but I know nothing is by accident. God has been faithful and there’s a lot here that needs to be done; God is not finished yet. With your desire to impact the lives of people through the love of Christ, I am a testimony of it. Your labor is not in vain so please do not be weary to continue the good work you have started. Blessings!”
