Tell us a little bit about yourself. The before Christ, how did Christ call you, and where are you at with Christ today?
I grew up knowing about the Lord. I was taught how to pray at an early age. I always feel the need to help other children who have low self-esteem, who have been bullied, and have no place to turn. The Lord laid on my heart heavily that I should help kids. That’s when He gave me the vision to start my own organization, Y.E.S Kidz (Young, Equipped and Saved). At first, it was Kidz For Christ but I realized other organizations were using the name. Due to lack of resources I didn’t get serious about it until 5 yrs later in my late teens, when I heard the voice of God for the first time. I was crying myself to sleep asking God for help, so I wouldn’t sink deep in the traps of the enemy. After that I fully surrendered to God’s will and His way. Today I am saved, trying to stay on the right path, obeying His will, and changing myself daily to be all that I can be.
Who has He called you to reach, help, minister too, or serve in your business?
God has called me to show salvation to the lost kids and unloved souls that most youth are burdened by and to make Christianity fun, exciting, and inviting to young people. I also strive to help kids know Christ and to make Him known. My ministry is Y.E.S Kidz (Young, Equipped and Saved).
Our mission statement at Y.E.S Kidz is that we believe it’s always the right time to make a change and impact on the youth that are hungry for something more and yearn for something different. Y.E.S Kidz is a safe haven for kids, teens and young adults. It will allow one to know and get closer to God in a fun non-traditional, non-judgmental, and non-denominational way. This way we can reach out to the youth, encourage adults in difficult times, spread the Word of God and bring together unity in the young generation under God.
This organization will be a center for kids and young adults to go for support, counseling, and tutoring for kids who want to succeed in life. It will serve as a safe place for kids to stay after school to keep away from drama so that parents may feel at ease. There will also be a support system for women and men.
