The human race, with an acceptance of Christ, is destined to inherit a condition and quality of life that is beyond the imaginations of man.


All human life is sacred and created by God and therefore, we must see all human life as significant and valuable. When governments implement the death penalty, then the life of the convicted person is devalued and all possibility of change in that person’s life ends.


Anyone may appear in hardship and poverty. Never give up in pursuit of happiness and one day you will find yourself in the right place, where God gives the sense of joy and assurances you are looking for.
