Abba was founded by Stan Smith. Below are a few words from our founder:
God is working on you like a diamond. You go through the fire and then you become what He wants. You have no idea the great things He has planned for you! Now you are in training to be a used in a mighty way. I was raised in the jungles of Brazil by missionary parents who had nothing of the world but they loved God and served Him. Now He is sending me all over and I get to be used by Him to bless others. It is a great feeling.
Recently I heard Nick Vujicic speak – who was born with no arms or legs. He asked the teens, “what do you need to make you happy?” I used to think I wanted arms and legs, and have shoes in the closet for when God gives me a miracle. Do you really think that is what I need to make me happy? You have arms and legs, are you happy and at peace? Well then arms and legs don’t do it. Whatever you want won’t make you happy. Only God will make you happy. He is right. We always want something. The trick is to know you are right where God wants you right now. The question is do we man up and rest in Him no matter what? If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your savior, this will not work. Please learn how to be Adopted into Gods Family. Remember here it is all a story being unveiled before the heavenly realm and God counts us worthy to show them all that we are strong if we rest in Christ. Read Job to get a glimpse of the spiritual battle we go through.
Philippians 4:11-13: For I have learned to be content, whatever the circumstances may be. I know now how to live when things are difficult and I know how to live when things are prosperous. In general and in particular I have learned the secret of eating well or going hungry of facing either plenty of poverty. I am ready for anything through the strength of the One who lives within me.
