“I put GOD first in all aspects of my life…for I do not mind letting everyone know I am an advocate for GOD.  My favorite scripture – I can do all things through Christ, which strengthens me.  All things are possible through GOD.  My mission is to serve.  It is not about me, but the Master will. I am a faithful member of the order and committed to serving others. My greatest award is serving the Living God and others.”

If any man serves me, let him follow me. – John 12:26 
In him was life; and the life was the light of men. – John 1:4
