Before I received eternal life I was active at Fellowship Baptist Church, Perryton, Texas, attending youth meetings, all church services, and even teaching a Sunday School class, grades 1-3. While teaching Sunday school I realized no matter how my life compared to people around me, I was guilty before God. I knew if I died before asking Christ to save me, I would go to hell and rightly so. At the end of our church service, opportunity was given for each of us attending to personally talk with the Lord, asking His forgiveness for our sin, asking Christ to come into our heart and save our soul.

I walked down the aisle at our church, knelt at God's altar and prayed to God. He heard me, forgave my sin and made me a child of His, a child of the Lord God Almighty. He gave me eternal life and all that comes with knowing God--the desire to study His Word and learn to know Him better each day, and the Holy Spirit dwelling in me, giving direction, giving a strong desire to share God's love, giving the personal peace that comes from knowing God has a place for me in heaven.

Since asking Christ into my heart, I have realized that before asking Him to save me I had a form of godliness--yes, I was a good person as far as the world was concerned, as far as other people were concerned, even as far as Christians were concerned, but I was denying God's power. All I was doing was in my power, not in the power of the faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave His life for me and you. Now, when I teach a Sunday School lesson, preach, and share Christ, I can see the power of God working in the hearts and lives of those listening. You see, as His child, God can work through me, changing peoples lives so that they can say without a doubt, like I can:

"I know that I have been given eternal life from God through belief in His Son Jesus Christ who loves me and gave himself for me and who is preparing a place for me in heaven where I will spend eternity with Him."

I had the privilege of being raised in a Christian family in the small town of Haven, Kansas. My parents, as well as my grandparents, have led lives consistent with their commitment to Christ. I am so thankful to God that he placed me into this loving family.

On April 16, 1967, shortly before my 6th birthday, I realized that although my parents were Christians, I needed to make a personal decision myself to accept Christ as my Savior. I was saved that Wednesday night after prayer meeting, at the Haven Baptist Church, Haven, Kansas, under Pastor James Lambert, and later, Pastor Marvin Valdois.

Growing up in a faith-promise missions church, I have always been familiar with missions. Although I never imagined God would use me, I am thrilled that He is allowing me this opportunity to serve Him in Jamaica.

"Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ."

~~Philippians 1:6
