Hi Fr. Abe Argniosa, my name is Michael and was introduced to add you through Harold Blando. I am leaving the Iglesia ni Cristo and have been learning more about the Catholic faith and will start my RCIA education soon after my masters program is complete. I just wanted to introduce myself.I have a Master of Science in Applied Mathematics from California State University Long Beach and a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from University of California Los Angeles. I am a Teaching Associate at Calif. State University Long Beach and a teacher at Blessed Junipero Serra High in Gardena.I love the posts in SPLENDOR BLOG. The websites are so informative. I read one on baptism. I truly do. I watched Jesse Romero and Ventilacion debate and from there and investigating for a year into the Trinity how blind I was. I feel like the blind man in the Gospel if John ch. 9Thirty years being a Deist and thinking the Christ was just a supermanNever truly understood what sitting in the right hand of God truly meant until I searched out the Holy Trinity.Now I am so eager to become part of the Roman Catholic faith.It has been tough though because my other side of my family is INC. I was teaching the Calculus at Calif State University. But finishing my masters comprehensive exams in the field of Applied Mathematics [now FINISHED]. I was a student at UCLA and was always inspired by St Francis prayer even when I was INC.
