What’s Your Story?

How did you come to know Jesus Christ?

That is your testimony, and every Christian has one. Some stories be more radical than others, but every testimony is significant.

Perhaps you have heard the testimony of some person who came from an extreme background tell of how they were delivered from drugs or alcoholism. They were a gang member or a prostitute. They served time in prison.

I received an e-mail from a man who came to Christ at our crusade in 1991. He writes:

“On that divine Thursday evening in 1991, God took this lost, suicidal, hardened, 15-year-old member of the Crips and radically transformed me. My life was instantly revolutionized, and I’ve never been the same since. Next month, I will celebrate 23 years in the Lord. By God’s grace I’ve had the privilege of ministering His Word all around the world. Had I not gone to the Harvest Crusade that evening, I’m confident that I would now either be dead or in prison!”

What an amazing testimony! However, his testimony is no better than yours. Just different.

When I was a young Christian, I remember a girl telling me she was going to go back into the world because she wanted a “more dramatic testimony.” She never came back. Listen, not everyone’s story may be dramatic, but everyone’s conversion is drastic, because when you get down to it, God essentially does the same thing for all of us at conversion:

We were all separated from Him by sin.
We were all going to hell.
We all come to salvation through the cross.
And now we are headed for heaven.

Everyone’s story is legit. Why? Because we all essentially start from the same place and we all experience dramatic change at the hand of God. And no matter how different their circumstances may be from yours, those who listen to your testimony can recognize that they too are sinners and need change—they can see a part of their story in yours.

When you share your faith with others, one of the best tools in your evangelistic toolbox is your personal testimony. But it should always be a bridge to share the gospel.

Your story points them to the greatest story ever told: the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

So, what’s your story?

Dominique Gonzalez Ushery There was a period in my life that I grew increasingly depressed due to an affair by my husband, a teenage rebellious runaway, an elder daughter that had 4 children and one on the way in the CPS system. Every aspect of my life was crushing me in despair. After a total hysterectomy I hit rock bottom and gave in to the depression by taking 3 bottles of blood pressure, and water pills. I became extremely sick and lethargic which caused my daughter to call my Father who in turn called 911. I was in a very restful sleep and awoke to extreme pounding on my front door along with the annoying ringing of the doorbell. The EMT’S, Fire dept, and police were there at my front door. I, with encouragement was taken to the hospital where my B/P was approximately 76/48. I was triaged in the ER and once stabilized taken to ICU in kidney failure. By the grace of God I recovered and when my earthly Father Juan brought me a book of affirmations and a highlighted verse: Come to me all who are heavy laden and I will give you rest…….. that verse for me at the depths of despair was my saving grace….. and made all the difference. Through Christ I live and can face tomorrow! Now I sing God’s praises and tell of his gospel and good news whenever I can. Problems may come my way but I have God to see me through…..

Carol Fowler Cody When I was 12, I was in the backyard and I was thinking about Jesus and God. I thought to myself. I think I’ll believe in God but not Jesus. The Lord spoke to me and said, “No one comes to the Father except through Me.” So I said, “Ok, I’ll believe in Jesus too.” And He has been my Savior and Lord for almost 50 years now.

Monica Stella My story is far too long but God would speak to me in my deep despair as a child. I would sit with my dogs an just cry for hours. I was not loved by my family and had no human contact . I had the unconditional love of my dogs and God would wash me in the words “everything will be alright. You will be okay”
Over the years I got lost in the continual negativity from those I considered friends. I was always in search of human connection. The voice disappeared.
I recently hit a point where I gave in and let it all go, the anger, frustration, expectation, anxiety…all the negativity…and the comfort of the voice returned with an “it is okay”.

BetteJo Willey Alderman Stephenson My story began when I was eight….I came from a family that practiced their Christian faith and attended church each Sunday. Yes, our family had its flaws…we are after all humans. But, God knew I needed to come to the Lord early so I would not get caught up in worldly pursuits as many of my friends did. He knew I would need a deep grounding in my faith so I could serve Him through the difficult times. I know that living my faith has brought others to Christ and that is what we are called to do. I love being able to bless others and serve the Lord at the same time. Thank you, Lord for your gift of salvation.

Marnie Lopez I was invited to Harvest on July 18, 1999. I thought “why not. It could be fun.”

I think I spent almost the entire evening with tears in my eyes from the over-abundance of emotions I was feeling. When the call came at the end of the night, I was too afraid to go down to the field (“what if my friends laugh at me for going?”). I did invite Jesus into my life from my seat. Then as we were getting ready to leave, I said “Wait. I need to go down to the field” and took off down the steps, tears rolling down my cheeks.

Then, a few weeks later, I was driving home from work and there was a passage I had read that I had questions about. I was flipping through the radio and happened to stop on Air 1. Luis Palau was talking about the passage I was having a hard time understanding. suddenly it was all clear.

I have so many stories to share, but will end with this one. In 2009, I was struggling with whether or not I should leave my job and stay home full-time with our son. My husband kept saying we would find a way to make it work (financially), but i was still worried. Then one night near the end of January, I sat in my office at work and prayed. I told the Lord I was listening and ready to hear what he had to say. I heard in my heart “trust me.” I can’t tell you how quickly the butterflies in my tummy appeared. I was scared. Who isn’t? Trusting Him with our finances is something almost all of us struggle with. He told me to Trust Him. I didn’t want to. When I got in the car to come home, I turned on the radio and on air 1 (again) they were talking about how if we are going to trust the Lord with our lives, that includes our finances. I went home and told my husband I was ready to stay at home.
It hasn’t been a walk in the park. We still have times when we struggle, but we make ends meet every month; even when I know we don’t have enough to do it.

Mateo Roque Whosoever Well I don’t know where I should start, when I was young my family went to church, and had bible studies once a week. I was about 5 -9 years old and I never knew who God was. I hated going to church… But then for a while my parents and I haven’t been going to church. As I was growing up been getting deep into pornography and in high school I started drinking, I honestly thought I was going to be a major alcoholic when I turn 21. I was in this off and on relationship with this girl, because of trust issues and found out she has been cheating on me. I did started going back to church my jr. Year because my mom wanted to go and I was going to make her happy. My senior year of highschool, I was just done being with my gf at the time and tired of her lies. I was getting treated like crap. Unwanted, I was really depressed. One day before Christmas I decided to go and commit suicide.. And I remember it was raining. I was at school during winter break because I had to take care of a steer. (FFA) but yeah stuff just really happened that day. And my friend who was there, who accepted Christ about a month before, started talking to me about Jesus and I think he wanted to share me something from Matthew and I wasn’t fully listening but it did give me comfort and I know that The Lord was calling me from that point on. He was working in my life. Finally at the Harvest crusade I stepped down to the field when Greg did the altar call. Very emotional night. I thank The Lord for everything now.

Jennifer Montgomery I came to Christ w/ my Grandma (awesome Christian woman who I love dearly) at age 12 a year or so after my Dad got taken to heaven! She assured me that by dedicating my life to follow Christ it will lead me to not fear death. I know I will go to heaven & be reunited w/ my Dad & all other loved ones who pass before me! I did not grow up going to church & always sought it out. I have followed you Greg Laurie from Calvary Costa Mesa to Riverside & to Irvine. My husband & I love your sermons & have had a hard time committing to get plugged into a local church near us In YL because we haven’t found a connection to any other pastors! I have had a few spiritual guilders in my life that always remind me to keep strong in my faith & God will always be there for me! I am assured He will guide our family in the right direction.
Bonus note:
I am blessed w/ 2 sons -Blake age 10 months & almost 7 yr old Trent. I am so proud to say that yesterday he proclaimed his faith @ FCA baseball camp. After 4 days being surrounded by amazing coaches & kids he said on Monday (1st day of camp) he accepted Jesus into his heart because he knows God loves him & us! I hope he is blessed w/ strong spiritual guilders through out his life & his little brother follows in his amazing foot steps!

Rosa Rivera I first started going to church when I was about 8yrs old I was fortunate enough to have felt the holy spirit ever since a young age n I talked in tounges. However I never truly sat at home n read the bible or prayed much and when I did I felt I didn’t understand it much but I knew there was a God because I had felt his amazing presence. I was in n out of church till about when I was 25yrs old and God lifted me up. I was diagnosed with cancer cells that we’re rapidly spreading. The doctors gave me a 80% chance that I’ll never be able to conceive a child. If I did my body won’t hold it because the cancer was in my cervix. To a woman this is a very important thing to hold a child a product of love from the man u love. I was married at the time. My husband abandoned me during this time. I found out he had been infaithful our whole marriage of a year and a half. I felt I had no hope except at that exact moment I cried out to God like I’ve never done in my life. Today I’m a better, stronger woman that has a relationship with God. It wasn’t because of my strength. It was him! I give him all the Glory!!!

Rafael L Garcia I have always believed in Jesus, but in my childhood, I would never spend any time praying or reading scripture, I use to spend most of my day without aknowledging god in my spirit. I was addicted to things of the flesh for years. All of these things left me feeling empty with no fulfillment, like there was a void in my life. The ways of wrong were in my daily activity. I was spiritually blind and did not see the errors of my ways. I was disrespectful to my parents. In my speech filth and profanity. I did not have the Lord in my life. When I was nineteen, a serious revelation in my Commitment to God occurred, I examined my life and I started to realize just how much the Lord was calling me. I always knew from being sick that God somehow was always directing my path by giving my choices that would eventually led to him. The only thing that seperated me from him was the sins i committed and the under-standing that my life wasn’t mine it was his. He created me and he knew in my heart one day I would choose him. From this day on I will always put God first in everything that I do. I realized that events of hardship in my life were times when I should have called out to Jesus Christ. I realized that I wanted a stronger relationship with my God, I at first was crushed emotionally thinking it was to late to develop a deep relationship with God. I viewed my self as such a wretched sinner, that I deserved hell. I condemned my self. I knew that in everyway I was guilty I wondered would God forgive me. I hated the actions I committed in my past . My spirit was crushed and burdened, godly sorrows flooded my heart, pain consumed my soul, and I felt in every way hopeless. The thought of not honor Jesus Christ sacrifice on the cross hurt, but then it hit me, Gods mercy is everlasting and he wants us to come back to him. For it is only through our Lord Jesus Christ that we may have our relationship with God.I cried out to the Lord Jesus Christ, I said that I forgave everyone that ever that wronged me and asked him to forgive me , and asking him for a heart of flesh, to remove any stony areas in my heart, to give me a heart of purity, and soon after things changed. A deep love for God soon developed, through much scriptures getting to know God and our Lord Jesus Christ. I started to change for the better. I developed hatred of sin in my daily life and I did not want to go back to any of those habits that were spiritually unhealthy. I am in no way perfect but through much sincere prayer and through Christ which strengthens me, I sin much less and stay away from things of the flesh, and am spiritually minded. I have by the mercy of the loving Lord Jesus Christ have become alive in spirit and have received the Holy Ghost. The Lord has brought meaning into my life. Thanks to Jesus Christ my nature is one of peace and I have become more caring and respecting of others around me. Jesus Christ changed me in such a magnificent way. I want to help others know wonderful truth, I am forever humbled that Gods grace came upon me. Jesus Christ guides me in the ways of truth and has strengthen my spirit. ?I once was lost but now I?m found, was blind but now I see?. Our Lord Jesus Christ wants to come into our life and help us, but we must open the door of our hearts and call upon him asking him to be apart of our lives and help us. It is the realization of how truly hopeless we are without Jesus Christ , that allows us to truly reach out fully to him.THANK God our heavenly Father for our savior and Lord Jesus Christ!Revelation 3:20: Behold, I stand at the door, and knocking Psalm 37: 18The Lord is nigh unto them that are of broken heart; and saveth such as be of contrite (crushed) spirit 2 Corinthians 7: For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of . Ezekiel 36: 26:A new heart also will I give you, and new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh2 Corinthians 4: 6:For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ…Philippians 4:13: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

Benjamin Liles Without divulging a lot of my past secret sins, all I know is that the power of the shed blood of Christ washes away all of the sins we ever commit away. As scripture says, “He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west” (Psalm 103:12, NLT).

And that’s the truth, too. It doesn’t matter how much of a sinner you believe you are, that you are a “lost” cause. The Prodigal Son thought he was forever lost as well, and yet when he came home to his father, what did his dad do? Make him a servant for having sinned? What son is given a place of honor in his father’s home if the Father hasn’t forgiven him? None. Absolutely nothing.

And that’s what we once were, all of us. Sinners in need of a changed heart, to be forgiven and justified by the One who freely does so if we just come back to Him. So, if you want to be free from your lifestyle of sin and heel-bound ways, just come to Him who saves from sin; come to the cross of Jesus and cast your cares on Him. That’s why He dies for all of us, not just you, me, my wife or anyone else. Come because you want your burdens off of you. Then go and sin no more.

Jeannie Tamayo Avila We all grew up Cathaolic. I was 7 when I got saved,in Sunday school. My parents lived next door to a christian couple,and we both had large families,living in a small house. We ended up moving to a bigger home,and through those years my mom stayed in contact with our nieghbors. A few years down the road,my mom kept getting ill,and her friend,Mrs. Garcia would call to check on her,pray for her,and was a good friend. The Garcia family invited us to their church,and we all tried it. I was just a kid,but felt the differance!! I Loved thepower of God,seeing devils cast out,and people being healed. This was in 1977 78. We eneded up giving our lives to Jesus,and switched churches. I was happy,because being a catholic was boring,and services lasted into eternity,even though it was only an hour. lol  My mom down the road,ended up having a stroke.(before were all saved.) Mrs Garcia visited my mom at the hospital with her husband to see her and shared the gosple. I was just listening in. I knew she was talking about Jesus. To make a loooong story short,.. my moms face was crooked,and droopy we ended up going to a service for healing. My mom was healed that day. The nerves in her face were tightening up everyday. The doctors told her her face would be droopy for a year or so,..but in 3 weeks she had NEW nerves,and suffered NO permanent damage! Our families have been saved since then. AND,many have returned back.. Im seeing end time salvations in our family,and miracles. Blessings, to the overflow,and they are still rolling in!!!   Im very greatful to DO what Jesus has always told me to do,.. PRAY & TRUST IN JESUS.

Dawn Street I have been a Christian since the early 1950s. I don’t know the date but it was in the summer and the church was in a brush arbor revival. I was probably in 2nd grade going into 3rd. God spoke to me in our yard as I was swinging on my favorite swing (attached to the mulberry tree instead of the swing set). Everyone else was napping which means it was a Sunday since Daddy was a farmer and that was the only day he did not go into the fields. I asked Jesus to come into my heart and life that day and then went inside to tell Mom and Dad.

Julie Belle Wright I was almost 7 years old and my parents always had us in church and I listened. I was at a friends house playing around a huge oak tree. My friend and I were trying to get all the way around it without touching the ground. We were talking and I mentioned going to heaven someday. She asked how I knew that I was going to heaven. I was explaining to her that you have to accept Jesus into your heart. Since we have done bad things we will go to hell if we don’t and Jesus is the only one who can save us. My friend asks “well how do you ask him into your heart?” I said, “you just pray and ask him to forgive you and come into your heart.” She looks at me and asks “did you do it?” I must have turned white as a ghost. I realized that I had never actually asked Jesus into my life. I couldn’t wait to get home. I wanted my mom to pray with me. I thought for sure I was gonna die before I got there and I would not be saved. I then got baptized on my 7th birthday a few weeks later.

Lorraine Coe McGlone Forty years ago, my closest friend invited me to her church. I noticed right away the people there were different from the church I attended. The preaching was very different too. There was something there that they always talked about. “Jesus.” I was young and didn’t really understand. I continued to attend her church on and off with the permission from my parents. She then invited me to a special YOUTH get together and we went on the church bus to another church. It was there, I finally understood why Jesus died for me through the preaching that night. I asked the Lord to save me, and Praise the Lord for my salvation that evening!

Patty Nogle I came to the Lord on April 30, 1974 at Calvary Chapel, Costa Mesa with Pastor Romaine…I had just gotten out of the hospital, almost died with bilateral pneumonia. Ten days later while at an afterglow service I had my first “vision”, I at the time did not know what it was, and later was told by the elders of Calvary that the Lord had given me this gift of visions/dreams. I studied under Pastor Chuck and Pastor Greg Laurie for the next 6 years until I relocated to Truckee, Ca. I now work for Jesus 24/7 sharing the gospel my visions/dreams with anyone who will listen…one thing Jesus is telling me is of His IMMINENT RETURN FOR THE BRIDE, AND MANY WILL BE LEFT BEHIND. JESUS HAS ASSURED ME THAT MANY SOULS WILL COME TO HIM AFTER WE ARE TAKEN OUT OF THE WAY. I PRAY FOR GREG LAURIE AND HARVEST MINISTRIES AND PASTOR CHUCK FOR HEALING ALL THE TIME.

He has revealed his purpose for my life, and has shown me that he had a plan to use it all for it good. Our God is a redeemer, he is a healer. If he can heal me and restore me, he can heal anybody. I have no more shame or guilt, he has washed me white as snow.

Melissa Oldenburg I was about 11 years old. We had been a catholic family, but didn’t go consistently. I didn’t like it when we did go. It was boring, and intimidating with all the rituals and things we had to memorize. My sister and my mom were invited by some new friends of theirs to Knott Avenue Christian Church in Buena Park, CA. When I went along too I was amazed at how lively and joyful the service was. We started attending regularly, and I went to the kids’ program on Wednesday nights, also. After hearing about how Jesus loved me so much He died so that I can be forgiven of my sins and go to heaven, I knew I believed in Him and I accepted him into my heart. I was baptized a short time later, on the same day as my mom. I wandered some during my teenage and early adult years, but rededicated myself to the Lord after my children were born.

John Tiner Mine is not dramatic. I heard the Gospel from the age of 7. When I was 8, the Holy Spirit gripped me with conviction one day with a vivid realization that the lie I told my parents was a sin against a Holy God – and I was lost. I gave my tender heart to Him then and asked Him to forgive my sin. I felt the weight of the world lift from me and knew the joy of forgiveness. My relationship with Jesus began that day. He has been my comfort, best friend, teacher, example and mentor. I’m 50 years old now. I’ve never known what it feels like to be drunk, high on drugs, have sex outside my 32 year marriage… God saved me from all the sins I would have committed! 10 years ago He called me to Pastor some of His flock. I once felt badly that my testimony was not dramatic – but I’ve now come to be very thankful for the good path of my life thanks to Jesus. Now I just want others to love Him like I do.

David Nelson The real drama is that we can be saved by grace….not how “bad” you were. We hear “saved by grace” so often, it can lose it’s impact in our heats, but in reality, it is an eternal, monumental radical, thing. Needs some meditative thought on this.

Susan Sorian I first came to know Jesus from reading the Bible at 5 years old. (My brother bought it for me when we visited a Mormon church – we were being told stories about Jesus in their Sunday school class, and I asked for one) LOVED Jesus, cried everytime I read how they crucified Him. Knew I was going to heaven. Did not attend church until Jr. Hi, and the youth leader shared how God changed his life. Hearing that changed my view of God dramatically, and I wanted to live for Him. Still wasn’t attending church or in fellowship. In high school, began to walk the fence to “fit in”. Began partying. ( Would go to Calvary tent concerts on Sat night, then go party afterwards! then it became more frequent, routine) Still wasn’t fellowshipping or attending church. God convicted me in my bedroom one night with psalm 51 – I knew I was about to lose my Best Friend – He told me He couldn’t go down the road I was headed, and needed to choose… I repented, until 1 day I was extremely depressed and took whatever my friends offered me. I suddenly knew I was going to die. I Told God, “what have I done? I am so sorry!” I blacked out for a short time in restroom, and when I came to, was straight – and walked home. When I went back to my “friends” house the next week, the roommate told me they figured it out that I was given “enough drugs to kill an elephant.” Looked me in the eye and said, “You don’t belong here!” He was right! My Lord has never left me since, through joys of childbirth and other life events, and mostly thru the trials of life: alcoholic family & husband, divorce, deaths of friends and family, chronic illness, death of my pastor husband… and thru it all has given me unshakeable, undeniable, peace, joy, and purpose. He is Amazing and is still and always will be My Best Friend. I love Him! And He really loves me! Hallelujah!

Sharon Allen I knew I was searching. Two dear friends continued to help me, talk to me, encourage me. Finally, I walked the aisle, one Sunday morning. It was a glorious day. I thought it could never be better. I was wrong. In the midst of a crisis, when I was way down, not even praying at that moment, sitting alone in the dark. I was depressed and dejected. And then a voice said, the sweetest voice I
ever heard, “I will never leave you.”. And He never has.

John Sherman God called me to preach one day. “But I don’t know you. How can I preach you?” Shows how stupid my reasoning was. From that point on, I started searching Him out. Was there a real, living God after all? (Yep, stupid. If He called to me, then He’s real, living, and live. Duh!) A few days later, a friend used the expression, GD! I asked why He said that. He replied, “Why? There is no God.” “Yes there is.” I said. “I don’t know how, but I know God is real.” That was pivotal. I moved a few weeks later. At the new city, I started going to church every Sunday. After a few months, I spoke with the pastor who requested I be baptized. I wanted no part of that. I did my best to talk him out of it in vain. (I didn’t want to hurt his feelings, else I’d have mocked him and walked out.)

I was baptized and had no expectations except of getting wet. I went in me. I came out with an ear to ear smile filled with the Holy Spirit. I couldn’t stop hugging the man. An elder mopped the water up as I exited the thank. I yelled, No! That’s my sins being washed away. I need to mop up that water. He died for me. (something along those lines). Then I went into the bathroom to change. I dropped to me knees and began praying. Tears flowed.

Life hasn’t been the same since. I continue to mature in Him every day.

He had never even gone out with a girl alone until he became engaged to his now wife and had never kissed ah girl until his wedding day. That is awesome especially when you come from my back round.

Then the Pastor said these words that I said to myself, and then said if any of you have said this I would like to talk to you after Church. I knew the minute when I said that to myself I felt different but could not understand. I did not talk to our Pastor, for if I did I would have to tell on me and his son for kissing in the car. This was my beginning when the Holy spirit came upon me seeing things but not understanding, my life has been a bump road with y’s in the road that lead no where, it has been turned up side down and twisted, finally at the end of my ropes thinking about taking my life, God intervened again with the help of a godly person, I trusted this person as God lead me and then more godly people helped I thank God and these certain people so much, satan had me feel like I was going crazy what a lier he is.

David Kim God is good all the time, all the time God is good! Ever since birth I was attending service because my father was a pastor. I was taught the bible at such a young age and had thought that automatically had a ticket to heaven. During my high school years I picked up some bad habits with substances. I was lukewarm for years. Ever since abusing substances I hated going to church but I was still attending church because my father was the head pastor of our church. The summer of my first year in college is when I first encountered the love of Christ. All these years I had the knowledge of the bible but had never truly had a one on one relationship with Christ. I repented and started my life fully devoted to Him. I now think of giving my all to Him and become a pastor myself. God bless~

Chronic ECHO type 5 virus meningoencephalitis in X‐linked hypogammaglobulinemia
An ECHO (Enteric Cytopathic Human Orphan) virus, is a type of RNA virus that belongs to the species Enterovirus B, genus Enterovirus of the Picornaviridae family.[1] Echoviruses are found in the gastrointestinal tract (hence it being part of the enterovirus genus) and exposure to the virus causes other opportunistic infections and diseases.
Systemic disease
A systemic disease is one that affects a number of organs and tissues, or affects the body as a whole.[1] Although most medical conditions will eventually involve multiple organs in advanced stage (e.g. Multiple organ dysfunction syndrome), diseases where multiple organ involvement is at presentation[ambiguous] or in early stage are considered elsewhere.

Jon Shepherd There it was. A door in”my” seven year old heart. I heard a knock. Heard there was this “Jesus” who wanted to come in and “sup”with me. I had few friends and I was glad to have a friend. That day forward,Back in 1974. I’m 47 now. I choose to serve Him and see Him in Heaven.

Kelly Summers A woman told me that I was free from the strong hold of sin through Jesus Christ. I believed her.ߘʰߑƢ܌ߒӍy life has not stopped changing since that moment. As I started attending church again I would hear the alter call and then conclude that I did that before in my twenties. Wouldn’t it be redundant? Wouldn’t I be saying that what Christ did for me the first time was irrelevant? Wouldn’t it insult Christ? No! One Sundays alter call was different. I reluctantly went forward, almost as if I was being driven to do what my own will refused to do for so long, rededicated my vows to Christ. My relationship with Him transformed. Praise God for grace, time and 1000 fresh starts.

Stephanie Calhoon “You know that your testimony is not your history, yeah? Your testimony is not what you were like before you got saved. That is your history. Your testimony is, “This is what God is like to me all the time.” So the brilliant thing is we are always updating our testimony. Every time you get a fresh revelation of Jesus, your ministry, your prophetic gift gets an upgrade. I love that thought!” Graham Cooke From SEASONED IN THE PROPHETIC

Milly Peede My little boy, then 6 wanted to go to church with our neighbour, he would bring home little tracts, either hand written or typed, on strips of paper, which he insisted I keep by putting them on the fridge door. I did this, and thought, Hmm. Righteous, what does that mean. I don’t remember the tract, but I remember that word righteous./ righteousness. 2 years later I decided I wanted to find God. Jesus scared me a bit. I went off to Wales and Warwickshire, I stayed in hotels, and read the Gideons bibles. None of it made sense.
Then my marriage hit the rocks, my husband got my friend pregnant and left us, or should I say deserted us to be with her. I remember not being able to sleep, obviously for worry and fear. I went downstairs at 4 in the morning, made myself a cuppa, and shouted so loud to God. ” Don’t just sit there, DO SOMETHING!” I felt His presence. This was 12th October 1990. I was carried along the week, until I went to visit my sister, I was traumatised, unable to think clearly, I had a 5 year old, a 9 year old and a 13 year old. We were all frightened. After a very long time we all arrived at my youngest sister’s home.
I cried and cried. I felt scared and lonely, I just needed someone to take hold of me and hold me tight.

My sister gave me a little booklet, Journey into Life. I read one of the scriptures, Revelation … I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into him, and sup with him and he with Me.

Peg Shelter I was about 42….I was raised Catholic but didn’t agree with alot of their beliefs…I just didn’t go to church much. I was invited by a neighbor to go to a Christian church she went to and I couldn’t believe how much I liked it. I felt like I was being taught from the bible.I was baptized in that church and went every Sunday. Then I moved and had a hard time finding another church I liked and fit into. I finally did and went on and off.My husband was dying and I was his caretaker. I was having a very hard time with it and turned to The Lord to help me. I gave it to him and he gave me the peace I needed to survive. I should’ve done it alot sooner but I felt I could do it on my own…I was wrong!I need the Lord in all things I do.I have since re devoted myself to Him and try to live my life the way He would want me too….
