Luke 1:28-33

And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!” But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

Ah, I love hearing of inspiring determination stories. This one is bout 15-Year-Old Kelvin Doe of Sierra Leone. Watch the video:

I blogged about another inspiring determination story  back in 2008. Go here to a link from my former blog on William Kamkwamba who as a young teen in Malawi had not attended school for 5 years, learned how to harness the wind with only the aid of a few library books and some bicycle parts.
