Weekly Spiritual Digest: Be Golden! Let the Fire Refine Your Faith!


20140524-201117-72677208.jpg

So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.

(1 Peter 1:6, 7 NLT)

This verse came to me on May 18th, 2014, when I was listening to a word of God from my pastor Jaime Perdomo at my church, La Iglesia Cristiana Nueva Vida. My Pastor, preached to me and to the congregation (in Spanish) on how our faith is like gold–but far more precious.

At first I could not fully understand his words, but when he so passionately repeated, over and over, on how necessary it was to put our faith over the fire–the trials and tribulations–so it can become Gold in Christ, I was totally floored. And it was at that moment that I finally understood his sermon and God’s plan in my life. For the first time, everything became clear:

The many fires in my life (or the trials and tribulations) were not there to torture me. The fires in my life were there to REFINE my faith, so it can BECOME GOLDEN–so I can become strong and pure in Christ.

Thank you Pastor Jaime for reminding of God’s plan, for showing me that the fires in our life are there to refine and purify my faith.

So this week and beyond, see the fire (or trial and tribulation) in your life for what it is: a tool which you can use to refine your faith and Be Golden in God’s Eyes!

Sunday Praise: Your Faith is Like Gold! (Pastor Jaime Perdomo)

#FullCircle: I am What I am Because Someone Loved Me


IMG_8416

#Fullcircle. I couldn’t muster the words of what he really meant to me that night. So Here’s my story:

When I was 16 years old, I struggled to find my identity as young black male in High School. I had the mind and soul of Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Fredrick Douglass, Bob Marley, Nelson Mandela but I was not accepted because I was too different or what people may call “radical”–I was so conflicted by the stereotypes in music, television, and social cliques, that I didn’t know “Who I was” at that time. However I pushed through those negative stereotypes, because of what one voicemail did for me. A voicemail that was left for me by none other than Dr. Cornel West.

In pursuit of finding my voice in High School, I wrote a speech called “Fear”–a speech that came to be the cradle of my creativity and charisma. But the problem was, nobody REALLY took the time to consider what I had to say–most importantly my ideas. And so, I did the most tenacious thing a high school student could ever do: send a letter to one of the most well-known and respected professors in the academia world today, Dr. Cornel West, and ask for feedback (and possibly a letter of recommendation). Although I didn’t get everything that I wanted, his voicemail was more than enough to put me on a right path to college, where I’ve graduated honorably from SDSU, and evidently into Suffolk Law School.

This month marks the 8th year anniversary of a voicemail of a lifetime, when a young man’s future is shaped by the words of a hero: love, compassion, and courage to chase your dreams.

That night was so emotional that I ended up crying because I am in Law School now; I’ve done so many great things since that voicemail. I spent all of my college years traveling across the country (from California to New Jersey and New York) to remind him of “Who I am.” But now I didn’t go anywhere. He came to me in a town where I have called my second home, Boston. And I reminded him again but only this time with, “I am what I am because you loved me.”

I want to send Harvard Book Store “A Special Thank You” for hosting this event, and making this FullCircle Experience possible. And once again I apologize to those who didn’t get their chance to ask their questions due to my tearful testimony. I hope Dr. Cornel West was able to answer them.

Thank you Dr. Cornel West; it has truly been a long journey for me. I will continue to love the way you have loved me when I needed it.

Prince Sefa-Boakye talks to Charlie Davies, US Soccer Player for the New England Revolution


(This interview was recorded on Oct.8th 2014)

Charlie Davies is a local Bostonian and plays for the New England Revolution. He has participated in two World Cups (2008 and 2009) for the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team and plans to play again in the next World Cup in 2018.

Charlie shared with me his future plans and his recovery from a serious car accident that he was involved in, back in 2009–and this month will mark the 5th year anniversary of escaping certain death. He said it was truly difficult for him because he couldn’t play consecutively as he used to–it took him 2-3 years to fully recover. But now he is making the right steps to getting back in the game and playing with his fellow teammates one more time before the next World Cup!

Playing soccer and being a soccer player is not a job but passion for him. He says, “There is no greater joy than to step on the field, put on your cleats and play with the ball.” He narrated to me his first goal account with the US National Soccer Team–and how that turned into a crucial qualifying goal for one of the World Cups that he was in. The US was playing against Trinidad, in Trinidad, Tobago, when his good friend Jozy Altidore (who is now the striker for the US Men’s National Team) assisted him by making a terrific pass which Charlie tapped the ball right into the goal.

Charlie admits that it was an easy “tap-in” goal but he says, “a goal is a goal!” And he was over the moon with it.

When I asked him to share any aspiring words to my audience, of whom wanted to be like him, he said this to me:

IMG_8321

“Through my experience, I would tell them to have faith–to have belief in yourself! Things do not always go well and they don’t always go the way that you want them to go. But you have to stay focused and stay positive! And if you can stay positive and work hard then you can achieve many things that people think that you can never achieve. You will prove yourself wrong and you will prove doubters wrong. But most importantly don’t take life for grant it because anything could be taken away from you in an instant.”

If you wish to reach out to Charlies Davies, and give him love and support in his quest to play for US Men’s National Soccer Team in the next World Cup, go to his Twitter account (@charliedavies9) at www.twitter.com/CharlieDavies9.

Statewide Rally with First Lady Michelle Obama and Martha Coakley


IMG_8215Today I attended the StateWide Rally with First Lady Michelle Obama and Martha Coakley, who is running to be the next governor of Massachusetts, at the renown Strand Theater in Dorchester, Ma,

This event did not only drew fellow democrats and supporters of President Obama, but iconic public figures and speakers like Mayor Marty Walsh, City Councilwoman Ayanna Pressley, Sen. Ed Markey, the current Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and of course the First Lady of the United States of America Michelle Obama,  to endorse and commend Martha’s work and stance on early education for children, food nutrition, public safety, equal pay for women, human trafficking and raising awareness on domestic violence.

Each speaker had a story tell but nothing came close to the touching story that First Lady Michelle Obama told which she met kids all across America, who are putting in the extra effort to go school and achieve a higher education while working two jobs and feeding their familes–despite their physical limitations and financial circumstances. She says, “If they are not giving up, we can’t either. We have to be more passionate and more hungry than ever before. We can’t let our kids down!”

Also in support of Martha Coakley, Lt. Governor candidate Steve Kerrigan was recognized, by the foray of speakers, for his public service– who I also had the pleasure to interview at the UR Business Network studio.

For more information about the Martha Coakley Campaign go to www.marthacoakley.com

Weekly Spiritual Digest: Living By The Spirit’s Power

Sunday Praise: When The Spirit Moves You

WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS WEEK… 

This week I will be providing little content as possible. I am in the process of getting ready for law school. In the meantime, please visit my previous posts and YouTube videos, which you can subscribe to by clicking here.

Next week, I will be making a public announcement via YouTube about my agenda for the fall–including my website, “Prince’s Daily Journal.”

Prince in The City w/ Adrian De Arriba, Fellow Aztec and Rising International Economist


In this talk I get to catch up with fellow classmate and Aztec, Adrian de Arriba.

Adrian de Arriba was born in A Coruña, Spain but moved to the United States, when he was only 10 years old–where he had a great and wonderful experience growing up in Coronado, Ca.

Adrian and I both attended Coronado High School together (2007) and San Diego State University (2012), where he majored in Economics. And after completing his college education, he then went abroad to Bocconi University in Milan, Italy to earn his Masters in Economics, which he is now working on his thesis.

Studying abroad especially at the graduate level, he says, was difficult; “when you go abroad you go to a different educational system.” Not only do you have to adapt to the pace of graduate school, but how they conduct classes and examinations. But overall, he says, he thoroughly enjoyed his academic experience at Bocconi University. His biggest advice for future economists out there is to take mathematics (courses) seriously and really research graduate programs based on what you are interested in.

Today he his back in Coronado, Ca where he will be completing his thesis and aspiration of becoming an economic analyst.

If you wish to contact him for advice on pursuing a undergraduate and graduate degree in Economics or ask him about his experience at Bocconi University, email him at adrian_de_arriba@hotmail.com

Weekly Spiritual Digest: Lead By Example and Live a Quiet Life


sunset

Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you before. Then people who are not Christians will respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others.

–1 Thessalonians 4:11-12

You can’t save everybody! Nor can you force people to respect what you believe in–that right belongs to Jesus Christ. It is why I strongly believe that people frown upon the Christian religion today–especially when fellow believers carry sinister picket signs.

Talk with your feet, instead of your mouth; you’d be surprise how many people will listen to your actions not your words. And mind your own business; your faith does not require you to be the NSA!
