End of My First Year On Staff

Click on the image above or this link right here to see my end of the year video!

Here are video highlights from my first year on staff! Thanks so much for all of your support and prayer. God has done amazing things this year. I’m hopeful and excited to see the way the Lord will use me as I will be full-time all of next year at UCLA!

goTandem: Fighting Temptation

goTandem is an interactive tool designed to help you pinpoint the times of days in which you find difficulty or distance in connecting with God. Having a daily bible verse application on your phone is great, but what if there was a tool that didn’t send you a random bible verse a day? What if there was an app that knew what your specifically spiritual struggles were, the times of day of day where you are tempted to be lazy, lustful, angry, etc., and provide the exact encouragement you need to hear.

Receive e-mails of personal testimonies of people struggling through and conquering similar difficulties, receive phone calls of 60 second bible excerpts/encouragements to help you stop, think and hear the Word, receive text messages in the morning to keep your find focused on the Lord and you even have the option of receiving a phone call from someone to encourage you and talk about your spiritual journey (if you do not have community or someone to help hold you accountable to spiritual excellence).

I just signed up for goTandem seeing how great the specific need could be. Although I view goTandem as a supplemental tool to maintain focused on the Lord, goTandem does not replace my daily quiet time with the Lord and my personal bible studies.

 “12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us runwith perseverancethe race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus,the pioneerand perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame,  and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

HEBREWS 12:1-2

Finding yourself to be tremendously busy and finding difficulty connecting with the Lord? Maybe goTandem could be the supplement needed to help discover a more powerful desire to prioritize your time with God.

Fraternity Students Accept Christ!

A SigEp Brother from San Diego State University accepts Christ! For all of the details on this powerful story, click HERE! Kevin met with me 4 months ago and told me that he doesn’t believe in God and never understood why Christians prayed. God used this conversation to open his heart more to hearing about who God is.

Kevin came to Greek IV and since then, we started meeting once a week to go through the Gospel of John. After a month and a half of answering questions about unbelief, hope in Jesus and understanding who Jesus is, he said that he wanted to start a relationship with God. I led him through the prayer to accept Jesus!

I met with Kevin again this week and he said he’s been noticing a big difference in his life after accepting Jesus! Pray for his walk as he continues to grow!

Sharing the 4 Circles @ Journey

This past weekend, I had the privilege to share my testimony and the 4 Circles Diagram, created by James Choung, with Journey Community Church. It was the first time I was able to share a Christ-centered message (other than my testimony) in front of a church!

Praise the Lord for this opportunity. Below is video footage of me doing the 4 Circles Diagram and sharing my testimony. Unfortunately, you cannot see the visuals from the 4 Circles Diagram from the video footage but check out James Choung doing it up close and personal from the links above!
