Favorite Quote:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world; there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine as children do. We were all born to make manifest the glory of God that's within us - it's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
-Nelson Mandela

Our paths have crossed, Jojo, my dear,
And now you must go away.
Back to Germany
Where, with your friends, you live and work and play.

From being saved, to receiving tongues
It has been quite a ride.
But now the time has come when you must go,
And leave your friends behind.

May God bless you in more ways
Than you could ever think of,
So you remember the place and the people you met
Who showed you His godly love.

We send you off to Germany
To conquer souls for Christ.
That by living for Him, many will see
That you were bought with a price.

Never forget the lessons you learned
With the family of ENC.
And stand firm in God's word
So that other's may be free.
