"I have attended an independent baptist private christian school all my life, I was saved on Nov.16, 1988. I dedicated my life to the Lord fully in Sept.1998. I plan on attending a christian college next year."
"In 1980 I began my
study of the Martial Arts. Since then I have benefited a great deal. I
have better concentration, learned how to defend myself, and
improved my self confidence.
In 1981 I began another
quest. I asked a young lady, whom I loved very much, to marry me. She said
yes! I began looking forward to my new life with the girl of
my dreams when suddenly my world came crashing down around me. After a brief engagement, the wedding was called off and we broke up. I was devastated.
Suddenly I felt very alone and hurt. This was the third relationship in as many years that blew up in my face and now I began to wonder if I might not be
better off dead. God had other plans for me.
One night with tears
streaming down my face I looked at a cross on my wall and cried out loud
to God. ‘I give up, I can’t handle it anymore.’ What I was
really saying was; Jesus, I need you! I had always believed in God but until that night I never understood that I needed to give my life to Jesus Christ. His love over whelmed me as I sensed Him coming into my life and giving me a peace and a quiet assurance that my life was only just beginning. Now at 39 years of age, I realize this more now than I did then. In all these years He has never left me and has never given up on me.
I am now married to
a wonderful Christian woman who shares my Martial Art with me. I am a father
of two wonderful little girls. God has also given me the
privilege of serving Him in full time Christian service. But the best part of all is, I know I have a Savior who I will spend all of eternity with in Heaven."
