Biography

Favorite quote?

  • “If you have no desire for others to be saved, you are not saved yourself, be sure of that” - Charles H Spurgeon.

 

If you could, what would you do to help make the world better and why?

  • Serve the Lord in every aspect of my Life and to “make the most of every opportunity” (Ephesians 5:16) to share the gospel and draw people closer to Jesus Christ

 

What has been your greatest moment in life so far, athletically and non-athletically?

  • Serving the Lord in Israel, and growing in my relationship with God through witnessing the Gospel to people either at work or anywhere!

 

Who are 5 famous people that you would like to spend a day with, dead or alive?

  • Jesus Christ, The Apostle Paul, Matthew, Mark, Peter, and John the Baptist.

 

Best advice you have received? Best advice you would give someone?

  • “Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise” Proverbs 19:20

 

What Bible verse have you been most impacted by and why?

  • “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” - Acts 1:8
  • I Feel that the Lord has called all of us to “go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation” Mark 16:15 and that if we “Love Jesus we will obey what he commands” (John 14:15). So my motivation is out of Love for Jesus to learn and study the Bible so that I can do what he commands which is to Go and make disciples and share the gospel everywhere whether it is on the construction site, school, sports or “whatever we do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord” (Colossians 3:23)

 

What is your career ambition?

  • To know God deeper and hear his voice in whatever I do. I hope to continue to use my construction skills to do missions and be an Evangelist somewhere in the world doing Gods will.

 

Who has been the biggest influence in your life and why?

  • Definitely Jesus Christ and the relationship that I have with him, but other than that many pastors and Evangelist that I know one of them is an Evangelist named Ray Comfort who has greatly influenced myself to share the gospel.
