I’ve been motivated to grow

I was born into a Christian home and grew up in the church so I was constantly supported and encouraged in my walk with Christ.  I committed my life to the lord when I was 10 and was baptised when I was 14. I have a passion for music and for children so God opened doors for me to play the piano and get involved with worship and various children and youth ministries.

In the past I have struggled with various health issues and bad relationships but through it all, God has shown me his strength.  He has forgiven me for all the wrong choices I have made and all the many times I have fallen short.  He has shown me an unconditional love that I don’t deserve and for which I am so grateful.

Last year God opened a door for me to do the Gap Year at the Bible Institute, but since then I have changed my studies from a Gap-Year to a Licentiate of Theology 3-year degree.  At the Bible Institute I’ve been motivated to grow, and to continue growing in my relationship with the Lord and in the knowledge of His Word
