God has changed my life through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Like the man born blind, my eyes have been opened to the truth of the cross and the empty tomb. Now, my life has been forever changed. I have been called to share this wonderful news with the world, to witness of the amazing things God has done, and to seek out continually my Redeemer, that Imight be His disciple. MDiv, Princeton Theological Seminary.
