My Christian testimony begins typically. I grew up in a good home and attended Sunday School until I was 16. I married, divorced, married, divorced and got caught up in a life that included many sexual partners. At the age of 30 my earthly father died. This was not easy for me. You see, I did not have a good relationship with the father God provided; I was difficult and I did not respect him. I had a nervous breakdown and it was as if an angel came to my rescue and simply but effectively told me get back to God—your first love. I ran straight back to my hometown church, asked for forgiveness and gave my life to God. I now attend that same church and I currently have been blessed with the job of church secretary. Oh yes, in the middle of all this confusion, God gave me a wonderful husband. I am proud to say I’ve been of service to the Lord for the past 27 years. And during those years, God has given me freedom from sin. I lost an earthly father but I gained my Heavenly Father!
Stay faithful and be grateful.
Your Sister in Christ our Lord,
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
