Testimony: I was blessed to be raised in a Christian home and at a very early age developed an insatiable appetite for reading God’s word. At the age of twelve I confessed Christ as my personal Lord and Savior during a summer revival meeting at our church. I was baptized and have experienced a deep and abiding love for God every day since, culminating with an intense desire to serve in my later years.
