About Phoebe Cheong
Phoebe considers a perfect day to be one with occasional conversation, her puppy Oscar, and a long walk with God.

Abraham was told to uproot and leave everything he had ever known to go in search of a land that God had promised him; and he did just that! Hebrews 11 remembers him as a man of faith.
