My life was a whirlwind of excitement, excitement and confusion.
I had a passion for faith and a desire to serve others.
I was born and raised Catholic and a lifelong Christian, but I have also learned that the truth is more complicated than that.
I learned to be compassionate and empathetic.
I am grateful for the opportunities I have been blessed to be a part of and for the God who has given me so much.
I love my family and I love my friends and I know I am not alone.
But I know that God is not afraid to give me His gift of grace.
I have a calling to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who are struggling and those who seek to know Him.
I do not want to make anyone feel inferior because of their skin color or their gender identity.
I am a pastor of a faith-based church, which has grown over the years, with our ministry now reaching more people of color and other marginalized people.
The church is very welcoming to people of all faiths.
We welcome people of any faith to join us.
We do not discriminate.
I also have a deep appreciation for the beautiful work of faith healing ministries and for their faith healing work.
I also love to pray for others.
The Lord is in my prayers and I feel blessed to receive His grace through my faith.
God has been merciful to me in every way, and I am thankful for that.
