A CLI Testimony
Read the Testimony of this Fellow Christian Leaders Institute Student:
CLI Student Monique Andrade
"Hello, My name is Monique Andrade, and I am located in Hartford, Connecticut. I am an Early Childhood Education Teacher, I will be studying Divinity in CLI. I feel blessed to a part of such a great organization of believers.
I came to know the lord as my Lord and savior at the age of 19, before I became a Christian I was still going to church all my life, no one explained to me about giving my Life to the Lord at the time. Becoming a Christian was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. One day I will be Evangelising and telling others about the goodness of God.
The reason why I need this formal education is because I am passionate about God and his Kingdom, I want to go deeper into God's word. God said in 2 Timothy 2:15 "Study to shew thy self approved unto God." in the bible so that's what I want to do. That is why I am here.
My Christian leader dream is to one day teach the word of God to others in such a way that they want to learn more about Christ, to one day change lives over the world and to proclaim his good works.
This type of Formal Education is a blessing to me because I found this amazing school at the right time. I feel blessed to be a part of God's works, and I feel blessed to be a part of the family."
Please pray for Monique and her ministry!
