Four years ago I walked into my first university class with eager wide eyes, completely unexpecting of what the next few years would have in store for me. During my time at university I would face some of highest highs and lowest lows. I had moments where I felt on top of the world, and others where failure stared me in the eyes and told me to give up. It’s been an interesting four years. I learned some tough lessons, experienced some rough heartbreaks, and saw God open and close many doors in my life. But through it all, God was there for me. A few weeks ago I graduated, and started a job in my field. What a blessing.


There’s so many people that helped me get through these past four years. I don’t even know where to begin with who to thank, and maybe that’s an even bigger testimony. 6 years ago I came to this church on the verge of giving up my faith. I can’t name them all, but in addition to my biological parents, the Bridge family gave me countless mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters to intercede and impart wisdom to me, drawing me closer to God. Being surrounded by so many godly men and women who poured out so much for me saved my faith and my life. I’m not supposed to be here, but God, through the Bridge, gave me the strength to make it here.
