Gianina (Gia) Wicaksono’s Testimony
“I’m so grateful that God has been working in me and in my family throughout my life. I spent my childhood in Jakarta, Indonesia. In Indonesia, a developing nation, parents make huge sacrifices for their children. And that’s what my parents did.
“We moved to the United States because they knew that it would be a better place for my siblings and me.
“I remember when my family was about to terminate my piano lessons due to financial limitations. Around that time, I found The Salvation Army, which helped me resume my lessons. After joining, I took up the trombone, and I worked with my corps officer who happened to be a trombone player!
“Through music events such as the Future All Stars, I have found a community in which I have grown musically and spiritually. I give thanks to the people who prayed for me and thanks to my family.
“Jeremiah 29:11, says, ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’ ”
