When I visit a nursing home, I’m always reminded of my mother who worked hard and did a lot for me. Unfortunately she passed away in 2002. I still miss her, and had she been alive, she probably would have been living with me. Joining the Men of Hope has been one of the greatest moves I have ever made in my spiritual journey. These men have encouraged me and we have achieved a lot collectively. When I joined the group I was not a Seventh-day Adventist; it was only after our mission trip to the Philippines that I decided to become one. Touched by the experiences of helping out in an evangelist campaign in the Philippines, as soon as we returned to Australia I made a decision to get baptized. I beganBible studies with my local pastors and about six months later I was baptized at Parramatta Seventh–day Adventist church. Part of the credit I give it to the Men of Hope for supporting me through out that spiritual journey, by myself it would have been a challenge. I particularly thank our group leader Robert for his trust in me. When I look back over the years I can see so many blessings, and I have no words to express my gratitude to our Lord. My spiritual life has improved and now I spend more time in prayer with my Lord.
