When I was five years old, I used to think of going to household fellowship as taking a walk: putting on nice clothes and going out with my family. Sometimes (many times) I fell asleep and my mother looked for a way to make me understand the importance of listening to the Word of God. As I grew older, I became involved in ministry activities, in service to the believing household and to God. I helped with the setup, preparation for the fellowship, and also setting up the snack. I really enjoyed giving.
At a young age, I saw how God blesses us as we commit—because the more I served, the more I received. In every area of my life, I saw God at work: at school, at home, everything. The biggest emotion of my life came from seeing God’s answers to my prayers for things as simple as electric power in my country.
I thought that everything was great, but then I took the foundational class on The Way of Abundance and Power, and my life really changed for the better. I learned about so many things that God makes available, and I wanted all of that. Many people see me and say, “It’s amazing how things turn out,” and I answer that there is nothing unbelievable. On the contrary, everything is due to believing.
I remember a time when I needed a job. I thought about a teaching from our Country coordinator about writing down what we were believing for, and that’s what I did. I wrote, “I need a job from Monday to Friday, working until three in the afternoon, with a good salary.” And that’s how it was—I received what I was believing for.
I have always put God first, serving with all my heart and living the Word. At college, for example, I met one of those teachers who does not give an A even for “Albert Einstein” quality work. “CD” was his nickname because C and D were the only grades he gave. On my graduation day I was expecting to graduate cum laude (with honors), but I thought that because of “CD,” it was impossible for that to happen. And do you know what? It was impossible for me, but not for God. I was very surprised to see my name on the graduate page with honors, and it was not cum laude but magna cum laude. God is good.
A little over two years ago, I made the commitment to coordinate a household fellowship. This was a big challenge, and many people told me I was too young for that; but others have given me wise advice that is only found in The Way Ministry.
I understood that God called me, and my answer was “Here am I, send me!”
