It was on Easter weekend, April 12, 1998 that I was baptized I was in Grade 8, 13 years old. I can’t believe it’s been 20 years already. I honestly feels like yesterday. I remember the day well. I invited a friend from school who wasn’t a Christian, and I believe my cousin got baptized the same night.
It all started with me giving my life to Jesus at Challenge, 1997, a youth event at our church. I can remember feeling overwhelmed and I knew I needed a change. There was an alter call at the end of the last message and I went forward. I didn’t go up because my friends did, I went because I knew I had a better calling on my life and I needed to make a change. God had something better for me.
If it wasn’t for my family and friends at New Minas Baptist Church, I don’t think I would be who I am today. Thank you for all your continued support of the years and for the years to come.
