Mission & Passion
I am a bond-servant of the Lord Jesus Christ, and feel that it is a privilege and a great responsibility to help students learn more about the world of biology and assist students become one with God as Christ is one with God. My passion is to not only help students master the courses I am privileged to teach, but also help each student understand how the Scriptures integrate into every aspect of Biology. It is a privilege to assist students to accomplish the great tasks that God has planned for them.
I have been studying the Life of the Jesus Christ in detail for over 15 years. I am in the process of memorizing the Book of Matthew. I first memorized the great Sermon on the Mount, Matthew chapters 5, 6, and 7, and it has greatly affected my life, for the glory of God.
