  • One evening while reading the Bible, I came across John 15:16, which says 'You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.' I developed the desire to study theology. I am grateful to God for giving me the opportunity to study at Caleb Institute. I hope and pray that I will be used as God wants.
