Interesting Facts About Me  :   I was the first person in my family to come to faith in Jesus Christ. I have seen my entire family come to faith, and I take joy being the patriarch of the family.
My Goals  :  I would love to see our association be more cohesive across language lines. I would love to see us work more together on mission projects.
