“I grew up in Cerritos, my family moved into the area in 1969. I am amazed at how much the area has changed. I’ve been attending New Life since 1976 and actually began my relationship with Christ as a result of a New Life Winter Youth Camp. I feel very much that the members of New Life Community Church are a part of her family.
“I enjoy reading, traveling, animals (especially cats) and learning about the natural world that God created so magnificently.”
