"God told me to move to Newark" everyone else said "don't do it" regardless I feel I made the right move.
Though I have cannot fully grasp the breadth of my work or experience in the city yet, I know that I have matured and healed here.
It has been a difficult journey but I was always felt kept, loved and respected. I thank these individuals for sharing their spirit, time, knowledge and resources with me.
They have made me a better person.
I apologize if I've missed anyone.
May God Bless this City.
