My blessed son Yohannes, this video is a dedication to your mother Bethlehem Bekele, who was the love who rescued me. I found the kingdom of God within me, forgiveness, which resulted in the angel of God Bethlehem being sent to me. No matter how hard life gets Yohannes, never be jaded and never give your hand to anger, never see yourself as a victim and do not dwell in grievance, when life comes at you swift and rough like the rapids of the Colorado river, find the reserve of faith you have deep in you and believe that no weapon formed against thee will prosper.
You are a testament you see Yohannes, you became possible because Bethlehem and I chose to have faith against all odds. You are our testimony and our greatest joy, you blessed us and I believe in my heart that you will bless many. I love you son, when you read this one day, you will know that you came from love and that you are a child of God. Be kind always Yohannes and disavow hatred; you are indeed nobility, but not because of your roots but because of your deeds. #Ethiopia #America #Humanity #Father2Son Click To Tweet

All pain is temporary, whether an hour, a week, a month or even years, in time all scars mend and we instead find meaning in our hurts. Hold tight for the darkness will lift and light will greet your footsteps where you are currently being chased by shadows. I am not preaching to you, I am just sharing my testimony for I was once homeless and bracketed by loneliness. Those past experiences are now my testimonies, you too will one day inspiring others once you overcome your challenges. Believe::
