I am still in college studying to be a L.C.S.W. I will be graduating next year and will transfer to Fresno Pacific. All of my classes are on-line so the fact I am a full time student will not affect my ability to work full time.
I am also in full time ministry as I am called to the streets where a team of other believers and I preach the Gospel and pray for the hurting people out in our community.
