    Blessings to you Propaganda,

    I was blessed to view your video in a class I am taking called Christian World View and your video GOSPEL just gave me all kinds of chills and resonated through to my soul!! I thank you for breaking it down that way you did and how you so eloquently put “You can not save yourself, so stop trying”. Yes Lord, it definitely reached my spirit. I pray God continues to guide you through this world sharing the good news to the ones that only think we can hear about God in a building and never truly understand it from their generation. You definitely are blessed in the way you bring it and I pray God has us cross paths one day.

    Be Blessed with Love & Light my brother,

    Willa

    Hi Propaganda,

    I hope you don’t mind me calling you by that, it is just the way that I heard of you growing up. I am the youth pastor currently at the Church of Southland in Anaheim, and I just wanted you to know that I was so blessed by your sharing your story of feeling out of place. I also grew up in the La Puente/ West Covina area, well a little bit out of the way in Hacienda Heights. I can totally identity with you, though not a 100%, on what it means to not be sure where you belong. Being a Korean American, being surrounded by Mexicans and Filipinos, and other asians, I struggled with who I really fit in with. Thanks for sharing and using your music to encourage others around you. I used poetry to voice my hurts, and my feelings, but also to uplift and encourage others. Thanks for encouraging me to do that through your work. Blessed by you brother,

    Blessings to you
