Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. - Philippians 4:6 (NRSV)
When I graduated from high school, I did not know what to do. Since 2016, I had been looking for a college athletic scholarship in the United States, but I had difficulties with the entrance exams that I needed to take. Many people told me that they thought I couldn’t...
Even when I don’t believe in myself, God believes in me.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
