On a Friday morning last fall, a phrase from God echoed in my mind… "Who are your 12?"
As followers of Christ, we should be intentional about pouring our lives and faith into the lives of others so they can do the same with others still. Jesus modeled it. He commanded it. I invite you to ask the Lord to give you the names of 12 people you can invest in this year.
There is extraordinary joy and loving others… Continue

Over the decades I have asked my self the simple yet profound question What did Jesus come to do?
I challenge you to pause and make a note of your answers.
REALLY I mean make time to STOP and make the list.

based on multiplication

The movie had been a popular stage play before… Continue

Born in 1975 in Mioveni, Arges - Romania. I was 11 years old when I realized that God loves me and Christ died so I can live. At 15, I told God that I want Him to use my life for Him and for the benefit of men.
At 16, I started working with the children trying to help them understand that God loves them and wants them to be their friend. Also during this time I started studied oil painting.
Since 1998 I have been involved in the full-time work and I still work for him with… Continue
