I grew up in a family where money was not plentiful My parents were not rich people when they came to America They came with nothing and earned everything they ever had Naturally the worldly pressure to become rich impacted my parents and ultimately me They were constantly making me stay home and study even on weekends While everyone was out watching movies hanging out with friends I was alone watching the time tick by and my calculus book This was not my purpose in life I was not meant to be affected by the world but the world was to be affected by me Besides the busy work of school I am very active in my churchs youth group My church retreat was a time of change and a time of repentance I realized the countless hours that I had wasted doing activities that would not benefit my future life This retreat was away from the stress of daily life away from the homework away from the world The theme To deny the worldly passion the time August 26-29 2002 the result a new world opened to the eyes that were once blind From a time span of four days my focus in life had become clear to me I wanted to become a pastor Now I had a purpose for that A in science I have a purpose for taking the SATs and I will have a purpose for going to college Through-out these four days my future vocation was to become a pastor and my ministry had come to life before my eyes during the last night The fire that I once had to enjoy the world was renewed to serving God and his people
