Today, I attended the meeting called Caitlyn Jenner and the Trans Experience. In the meeting there were 5 psychologist professors who were discussing and informing the audience about the process of transgender, and now a days it is hard for people to expect the reality.

Among the subjects taught was systematic theology and homiletics and for about 6 months I along with two others from my church attended every Saturday. Through this system I improved enormously and preached not just locally but in the zone and my confidence grew exponentially. Remembering what the voice had said "Why didn’t you do it? " I threw myself into local evangelism and preached at open-air meetings, went door to door and generally became quite active in the local church and the zone.

When I first came to America to continue my high school study , I met a pastor from the local Chinese church. He is really kind and friendly to me, just like my grandfather. Last Christmas, we went to the Winter Conference in Kansas City, Missouri. I saw a great number of Chinese who believed in God gathered together to share their spiritual life. This is the first time that I have a understanding about God.
As a practicing litigator, I routinely see the importance of how a judge treats attorneys, litigants, staff and other members of the public. Carla is well respected by all of the attorneys in our firm, opposing counsel, the bench and her clients.
