Tuan Tran – Secretary

I came to know Christ in the mist of emotional turmoil where there was no peace and contentment in my life in 1992.  Then I challenged the Creator of universe “If you are the true God, please do for me one thing and then I will surrender my life to you.  Please fill in my heart with your peace.”  Truly, He is the One who replaced all my fears with His Words.  The more I experience Him the more I would like to seek Him and serve Him. One of my favorite bible verses is Matthew 6:33 “Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness…”.

I grew up at the Vietnamese Clifton Park Baptist church, Maryland where He developed me as a youth leader, Sunday school teacher, and chairman of board of trustee.  Thanks God that He helped me finish college and worked for Lockheed Martin as a system engineer more than 10 years.  Now I am Mr. Mom of three wonderful children and a husband of one sweet wife of Proverbs 32, not 31 but 32.I am grateful that He allowed me to go mission trips in Cambodia, Malaysia, South Korea, Europe, and Vietnam since 2003.  I feel very encouraged every time I go mission trip.  Try one time then you will know what I meant.  Thanks God that our Kirkwood church has a mission trip every two years in summer.
