Renuka's Story

Serving in First Impressions has given me the opportunity to bless others in love and humility. What gives me great joy is putting Jesus first, others second, and myself third. God is love, so I strive to model His love by serving. Jesus came to serve, and since we are children of God, I try to live this Christian life by God’s grace through faith.

It imperative for me to serve in this ministry where I can rejoice and show others the love of God. It is a blessing in my life sharing God’s love with others.
