I spoke to a church that's interested in Bitcoin
My Bitcoin story is different.
All things considered, my value system came from the Church as well as the streets because both were easily accessible to me. My father was a rolling stone, and my mother, whom I lived with for the majority of my life until adulthood, was a Christian missionary. I saw both worlds up close, and due to this, I developed shrewdness around how I move in the world and an empathic heart for people due to seeing the cause as well as the effects of decisions. Since I couldn’t make it to Heaven on your mother’s faith, I became a “real Christian” in 2012. I love Jesus, and He is my Lord. When I learned about Bitcoin in 2016, one of the first places I spoke to people about it was in various churches. Fast forward to “The Secrets of Satoshi” World Tour, I found myself in Atlanta, as mentioned in the US Tour recap, and I spoke to a young man by the name of Dr. Justin Lester. We spoke about tech, Bitcoin, and how he pastors a church in California called “Friendship Missionary Baptist Church”, which is a community of Christ-Led Liberators who Love Jesus, Heal People, Serve Vallejo, and Build Community. Along with being from Milwaukee, WI, like myself, we both love Christ and have a passion for community. After connecting in Atlanta, he reached out regarding doing a pre-recorded talk for his church, which I was happy to do.

Special thank you to Pastor / Dr. Justin Lester for the opportunity!
