…after my testimony at #ProjectNewLife Church in SD tonight with some of my students. It was a bless!!! I love to share the WORD #Jesus. #TheSeedIReceivedIWillSow 🌱 …depois do momento em que compartilhei meu testemunho de vida aqui no @projetovidanova.oficial Projeto Vida Nova em San Diego Ca com alguns de meus alunos. Foi uma benção. Adoro compartilhar a Palavra #Jesus #ASementeQueRecebiEuSemearei 🌱 #Repost @mikecarbullido with @repostapp. ・・・ Almost six years and you think you know someone so well, then they blow your mind in a span of an hour – talking about their journey through life and personal testimony. I enjoyed listening to his story and how he became who he is. Professor Andre is the perfect example of a person I want to continue to look up to. During my recovery from surgery I’ve had many negative thoughts that I’ve had to block from staying in my head, I’m always trying to think positive and affirm my strong beliefs that everything will be better than okay. Tonight helped me a lot. I had fun and it was great to chill with these guys!
