DAYSTAR CHRISTIAN CENTRE

“Turning the focus from self to others is one of the greatest transformations in a leader’s life. Service is the essence of leadership.”
“You can’t pull the arm of your child to force them to grow, neither can you stretch a plant to grow. Only God has the power to make things grow, but we have the responsibility to ensure a healthy lifestyle…”
“One fact that separates great leaders from good leaders is the capacity for sacrifice.”
