I am so grateful of God’s guidance in my life to this day. When I was still in Indonesia, my parents went to the US to start a new life. For 3 years I was left with our relatives in Indonesia.
When they were in the US, they applied for the green card lottery and Praise God! They got the green card. At that time, it was relatively easy to win a green card lottery. After that, they went back to Indonesia and brought me and my brother and sis-ter to the US. At that time, I didn’t have any plan to move to New York. I thought even in Indonesia my life was already good. But God had another plan for me and my family.
In New York, I had the opportunity to learn new things. I am thankful that I could continue my education. I started in High School, then Associate Degree, then Bachelor’s Degree. I completed them all only because of God’s grace! During school I also had a part-time job. These were truly God’s blessings for me. God willing, I want to continue my education and get a Master’s Degree in the future.
I also grateful for my parents. Without them, I may not be here in New York. Until now, I still can enjoy God’s goodness. Sometimes we make some plans but God is the one making deci-sion. If we depend on God, God will create and open ways for us. Amen..! This is the end of my testimony. In the future, I will share with you again about God’s goodness.
I pray that this will be a blessing for brothers and sisters!
