Pastor Glem @ Trinity

By Pastor Glem Melo

As I was listening to Dr. Wayne Johnson, Associate Dean of TEDS and my professor for Biblical Theology and Interpretation, during the orientation, I was thinking, “How did I get here?”  Because I am just a poor probinsyano and former drug addict from a poor province of the Philippines.

But, as I always do…  I just keep on keeping on. The goal: for me to study and be equipped to train and mentor pastors and church planters for unreached people groups worldwide.

Please pray for me.  More than ever, I need prayer.
