38783107_10217780133120135_896594931508838400_nThis week, as a new Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) student (teaching and preaching concentration), I went to the New Students Orientation (2 days for international students) and started attending classes at Trinity International University / Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

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 get equipped to train and mentor pastors and church planters for unreached people groups worldwide.

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

About Glem Melo

I am a believer and follower of Christ, happily married, and have 3 wonderful kids. I am the founder and President of Open Eyes Mission (ministering as New Hope Global in the U.S.); a church planter among Muslims, Hindus, and other unreached people groups in the Devon/Little India area of Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A., under Park Community Church; and studying Doctor of Ministry at Trinity International University / Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. The Bible teaches that God is real, man is sinful, hell is real, and Jesus is our only hope of salvation. I believe these truths with all of my heart, and I hope to help others learn of them as well. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) May God give you grace and peace.
