In 2012 I had an encounter with God in Cambodia. I asked God what I could do for Him. God showed me a verse in the Bible – Isaiah 1:17 – “Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of the orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.” I believe this is God’s call to me and His plans for me. The greatest need in the world today is love – more love for each other and more love for God.
