My name is Richard Van Sickle. I am 45 and currently I can’t see due to having cancer when I was 7. Having seen I still can relate to people about colors. After receiving 52 radiation treatments and a year and a half of chemotherapy I am now in remission. I had to relearn to walk and talk and much more.

I started out as a Christian and learned about the Sabbath and the Festivals. I went to a Messianic temple and realized I had more to learn and now I am Jewish. After I became Jewish a Rabbi gave me the name Chaim.

Abraham and Moses both were called by G-d and they accepted his way. They would both start off small and learn more and more. We learn all our lives and then we must pass it on to our children and to younger generations.

This is one way to keep Faith alive. No matter how much we know there is always room to learn more and more in the knowledge of G-d. Just like a plant we need to grow. A plant needs sunlight and water to grow. After it is fully grown, it will be able to supply food, medicine, and shade for humans to enjoy.

Change the world by doing a Mitzvah. A Mizvah is doing something good. Here is how it works. Do something good for someone like buy them lunch, mow their lawn even something as small as holding the door for them. This will make them feel good and they will turn around and do something good for someone else. No matter how big or how small it is keep on doing a Mitzvah and you can change and the world will change with you.

Life is like a Journey. There are ups and there are downs. What matters is how we REACT to these changes. What helps is having a Positive Attitude. We must thank G-d for giving us the opportunity to grow and to be more and more like Him.
