As a child, I was first introduced to Christ when I was in elementary school. I belonged to a charismatic group in my country and was born again. When I moved to the U.S., I left my former church and joined a different church in different cities that I moved. Once in Maryland, I wanted to serve in the church but I do not drive, so I was not able to come by myself. I now live close to the church and my children are willing to drive me to Grace so I can serve.
The church, especially one of my pastors in Minnesota, helped me through my divorce which would have driven me crazy without that support. I’m now ordering everything I do around my decision to follow Christ. I was baptized as a child, but didn’t know fully what I was committing myself to. Now I know and I am dedicating my entire life to following Christ because of what he did for me on the cross.
