I am going to continue in the footsteps of Youth Pastor Daron Thomas by sewing seeds of my time, my talent, and my treasures. I've been able to help by participating with the Temple of Judah in community-driven projects: in the Thanksgiving Turkey Drive-in feeding the homeless, becoming an available tutor for any student in need, sending care packages to those that are incarcerated, donating 'honor bikes' for honor-students, and season passes for scholar students, hats and gloves to all elementary and middle school students in our poverty-stricken community, car washes, fish-fries,etc. We'll be providing coffee, water, and snacks at voting polls this year in efforts to reopen the Citadel of Hope (a facilitation for the youth ministry and many other projects). My testimony of receiving an academic suspension for a 0.67-gpa, and re-entering 5 years later earning a 3.78-gpa, has inspired atleast 8 of my peers (younger and older) to re-enroll in a college or university this past year. And it was all credited to my relationship w/ God through the ministry I've been receiving for the past 8 years.
