Pastor Rochelle’s One-Minute Witness:
“There was a time in my life when I constantly felt anxious and unsure of who I was. I allowed my emotions to be my compass for all my decision-making, searching on how to be ‘enough.’ This insecurity affected how I treated others and myself. I grew up very involved with Sunday morning and Wednesday evening church activities! Because my parents made this decision for me, it gave me a firm foundation and knowledge of who Jesus is. I remember giving my heart to Jesus at VBS when I was around five years old, but it was when I was a freshman in high school that I truly surrendered control of my life to Jesus. Since then, I have been led by His plan for my life. Experiencing the love of my Savior has allowed me to be made complete in Him. If I had never met Jesus, I would have been living without peace, joy, and the love of a Heavenly Father!”
