Dear Rev. Regen Luna,
Shalom! Jesus says in Matthew 20:16, “many are called, but few are chosen.” Indeed, it is true to yourself, since the Lord called many from the wilderness, and from the different walks of life, from different races and from different sexual orientations, but very few are chosen to be ordained.
Ordination is an act of separation—from the world, to make you holy; so that you might go to the world–to do His mission.
Reverend Regen, your mission is unique. I perceive that you will have gargantuan task in God’s Kingdom and you will encounter a lot of challenges. But do not worry, be happy since the Holy Spirit is with you always to empower you and to inspire you.
Rev. Dr. Sergio E. Arevalo, Jr.
