Dear Friends,

It has been a couple of weeks since I wrote last. I’ve been very busy with my daughter’s wedding, which just happened last Saturday. Everything went perfect and I thank God for giving us the opportunity to raise our daughter and see her start her new life together with her husband.

Today, I want to share with you about an event that is going on in our own back yard. Many times we find ourselves asking God for revival in our land… well, it’s happening in the Twin Cities. I invite you to visit www.revivetwincities.org where you can see what God is doing in our land. About 50 churches in the cities got together and provided laborers to go and spread the Gospel. Kyle Martin is the founder of a non-profit organization called Time to Revive (www.timetorevive.org). His vision is to see the Body of Christ revived and making disciples in the United States. He and a small group of people believe that a small group of people can spark change in a nation – and they are doing it! They go to different states within the U.S. wherever they are invited. They work with churches, other non-profits, and with business professionals to get the laborers to go out and spread the Gospel. They also need workers to run the event and sponsors to help pay for everything that it takes to undertake this kind of event.

While I was not able to participate in person this time because of the wedding going on, I was praying for the event and participated financially. But this is only the beginning! Revive Twin Cities has ignited the fire in many people’s hearts and in churches. People will continue to go out in the streets to spread the Gospel and continue the work that started this week. I encourage you to get involved and do the work of God that each of us, as Christians, is called to do – share Him with others.

Dear Friends,

Each year around the 4th of July I reflect on what it means to be an American. As a first generation immigrant, I am thankful and forever will be grateful to God for giving me the opportunity and gift to become an American. I’m sure most of your ancestors came to America looking for freedom and new opportunities. Despite all of our mistakes as Americans and as a nation, I still think God has blessed this country beyond measure. I still believe that this is the land of opportunities where your dreams can come true if you are willing to work hard and dedicate yourself to serve others along the way.

Today, I want to share with you a short video of my story as an immigrant. Green Card Voices is a non-profit organization that creates awareness about the immigrant population in the United States and their contributions to this great country. I invite you to watch it and learn about other immigrants as well.

Here is the link to the video:


I pray for America often and invite you to do the same. America needs prayer. Enjoy the 4th of July celebration of independence with your family and loved ones!
