When I was 14 I had a teacher at church who explained what transgressions were and what it meant to really need Jesus.
I had reached the point where I realized how dark and disgusting my life had become because I was spending time with Christians and saw how they lived…
While serving in the Air Force I met a girl and started going to church with her. We were married in her church about a year later.
I used to be that obnoxious smart kid that was competitive about their grades.
I was raised in a “church attending” home where there was no real emphasis on Scripture. I was very wild through High School and then joined the U.S. Navy
After hearing some college students present Christ to another kid in Vacation Bible School I began to feel a need for something more in my life.
Before I met Christ I was a child, growing up on my Indian reservation with my mom, dad, and 3 siblings.
One day, after looking over the plan of salvation in the back of a Gideon’s Bible I knelt by my bed and asked Jesus to be my Savior.
The pastor’s words began to sink into my heart and I began to see that I didn’t have a relationship with God.
I was not at peace, nor did I have the assurance that I would go to heaven when I die.
