I have the privilege of telling Bible stories in class and seeing students listening, hearing the Word of God through which Faith comes. In other words, in my job I see God's Holy Spirit at work bringing in new believers and deepening the Faith of those who are already His.
"I am thankful that God's word can be applied and discussed in all of my classes: Theology, Literature, World History, and ESL. I am thankful for the witness of Christian students to those who don't yet believe. Every day I can see that God is good and His Word is effective"
