My name is Jonathan, and I am currently a 2nd-year college student.

So, how did I get to know God? Well, my mom used to go to Three Crosses, but I didn’t go with her. Later on, my friend Adora and her family took me to the Church of God in Oakland, and that’s where I was introduced to God and made some great friends.
