Word of Life 

Word of Life Christian Center is a church I can call home.

 


I am grateful and thankful to God for pastors Cesar and Claudia Castellanos of Bogota, Columbia for imparting the Vision to my pastors, Art and Kuna Sepulveda for Word of Life Christian Center to do the works of the ministry. I appreciate our associate pastors, G12 leaders, life group leaders, brothers and sisters of our congregation family.

One week ago, marked my 14th anniversary of being planted at Word of Life Honolulu. I am forever grateful that God sent three, not one, not two, but three people to invite me to attend Word of Life, exactly 14 years and seven days ago. Here’s to many more blessed years.

I am currently enrolled in the School of Leaders: Destiny Training Level Two. Once completed, I will open my Men’s Life Group on God’s perfect timing this season and enrolled for further leadership training for ministry.
 

Ministering with beatboxing and the Word of God at a youth and young adult outreach.
 

I know that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit aren’t done doing a work in me. God is good and He is faithful.

Beatboxing, sharing the Word of God and the word of my testimony with the next generation.
 

Thank You Jesus for pastors Art, Kuna, my Destiny Training Level Two instructors and guide, and Word of Life Christian Center. And here’s to many more blessed seasons to come in reaching lives and doing life together.

Beatboxing for the God centered Creation production.
 

Hallelujah and amen 🙏.
 

Amen 🙏 and hallelujah.

Blessings,
Jason

2022 DETROIT LIONS ARE THE NEW 1952 DETROIT LIONS 

Just saying. 2022 Detroit Lions 🦁 are the new 1952 Detroit Lions. They will put the NFC NORTH, NFC conference and league on notice this NFL season. One game day, at a time.

Detroit Lions Leaping Lion Blue BG

Yes, Detroit Lions lost to the Philadelphia Eagles 🦅 in week 1, but I ain’t writing the Lions off. Eagles versus Lions was the highest scoring NFL game of week 1. Detroit Lions tied for 2nd most touchdowns scored in the league for week 1, behind The Kansas City Chiefs 🗡. Eagles versus Lions was a highly competitive show down.

2022 Detroit Lions can and will be able to go from WORST to FIRST this NFL season. In my humble and honest opinion, I believe the 2022 Detroit Lions are on pace to be able to do it and will do it, one game day, at a time. They can and will be in the NFL playoff hunt. Lions has the fans, grit, front office, coaches, quarterback, offense, defense and special teams to be able to do it.

Past Detroit Lions teams that opened with a week 1 regular season loss and finished as winning, playoff contender and championship caliber teams: 

-  1952 Detroit Lions: lost in week 1, finished as NFL Western Division Champions, NFC Conference Champions over the Los Angeles Rams 🐏, and NFL World Champions* over the Cleveland Browns 🐶. 
*: The NFL World Championship is equivalent to what is now known as the Super Bowl Championship in the modern sports era. 

- 1957 Detroit Lions: lost in week 1, finished as NFL Western Division Champions, NFC Conference Champions over the San Francisco 49ers 🤠, and NFL World Champions over the Cleveland Browns. 

- 1960 Detroit Lions: lost in week 1, finished 2nd in their division, and won the NFL Playoff Bowl over the Cleveland Browns. 

- 1991 Detroit Lions lost in week 1, finished as the NFC Central Division Champions over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 🏴‍☠️, Green Bay Packers 🧀, Minnesota Vikings 👑, Chicago Bears 🐻, and were an NFL playoff contender team. They were the NFC Divisional Champions over the Dallas Cowboys ⭐️ and Lions clinched the NFC Championship berth. They were one playoff win from clinching the Super Bowl Championship berth when they faced the Washington Commanders 🪶.

Detroit Lions Grey Background

- 1995 Detroit Lions lost in week 1, finished 2nd in their division and went on to be an NFL playoff contender team. They faced the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Historical sports facts is backing that it’s possible for the Mighty Detroit Lions to go from WORST to FIRST in the Super Bowl era. I believe in the 2022 Detroit Lions.

Let’s do this! 

Honolulu Blue and Silver for the win 🏆 and to the 🔝.

2022 Detroit Lions has the top 3 best offense and has scored the 2nd most total touchdowns in the NFL through week 3.

National Best Friends Day Concert 

Friday, June 10th was National Beatbox Day in the United States. I want to wish you a Happy Belated National Beatbox Day from the Aloha State.

Earlier in the week, I had a blast beatboxing on National Best Friends Day in the Honolulu Blue and Silver. I am thankful to my Best Friend Forever Jesus for Hawaii Baptist Academy Eagles and First Baptist Richardson on having me jam for them this summer.
