David said, “The Lord, who saved me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, will save me from the hand of this Philistine.” - 1 Samuel 17:37 (NRSV)
For three years I faced one challenge after another. I was diagnosed with burnout and depression, and I had to give up my profession as a teacher.
Since then, I have had to deal not only with my recovery, but I have also struggled to pay the rent, other bills,...
God can use my adversities to strengthen my faith.

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.”
