After going to Alpha, and after rediscovering Christianity, I developed a relationship with God. If I didn’t develop that relationship, I wouldn’t know where and who I wanted to be.

Every time I came (to Alpha), something sparked or connected with me to God. Alpha became something I looked forward to.
