The 34-year-old said, “I always had an immense connection with God, and I was only attracted to Jesus, to learn from Him. Even though I was looking in the wrong places for lack of notion, where the eternal truth does not last and God’s blessing is not there.”
She continued, “I never had any doubt about my feeling towards our Savior and I never lost the desire to be closer to Him, so I kept looking.”
Thanking the church
She expressed her gratitude to the Christian church for teaching her more about her Savior. “The Christian church has given me so much, so many teachings, so many answers! Finally getting me, getting the answers in Jesus.”
She calls the concept of being called and chosen as “one of the greatest miracles” that God has done in her life and the chance to be baptized in water. She ended by thanking the people behind her transformation and faith. “Thank you [Pastor Terry] for being present and a great figure in my spiritual growth. Thank you [The Life Christian Church] for this beautiful celebration, for all your great work!”
