"Reaching people to the Lord Jesus Christ."
"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."
I have lived with a disability for 31 years, it effects everything in my life but I refuse to be defeated. I have been on the brink of life and death many times.
My hope and prayer's sometimes not even knowing what I am praying for is in Jesus.
If you want to give your testimony it will be reviewed and added to this page if it benefits the purpose of this site. One's testimony can uplift another and show the power and ability that Almighty God, through the Son of God, Jesus can accomplish in anyone's life. In your life of trials and struggles turn to the Lord Jesus Christ when mere man can do nothing. The Lord can, "Jesus never fails..."
Thank you! A sinner just like you.
I was basically raised by my mother. I have two brothers and one sister.
My parents divorced at an early age. I loved my father.
I did well in school but the end of my high school years I turned to drinking.
I enlisted in the USAF in 1984, discharged then went into US Army.
There is very much use of alcohol in the military. It may be an unknown fact.
When you get away from your home you see the world.
Everything is new and exciting.
In 1990 I went into the USAF reserves where I was trained as an Aeromedical Evacuation Medical Technician.
It was one year of intense training and I traveled to four different states, military bases in CA, TX, FL, and SC to attain my aircrew medical flying wings.
With that training when I was discharged from the reserves and became a Firefighter III/EMT.
I saw many terrible things and experiences. I did this for three years.
I lived for nearly 40 years unsaved and in the world of good times and loneliness.
In 1996 I asked the Lord to come into my life and heart! I would marry a short while later to a woman I met in church and saw the birth of two daughters. I would be diagnosed with PTSD in 1998. Years later it was deemed service-connected.
I owned a house, vehicles, and all the things that never truly make you happy.
My wife was diagnosed with a type of brain tumor that effected her balance, stumbling and such. It was benign and called an acoustic neuroma.
She nearly died, lost her job as a registered nurse, and in 2008 we filed for bankruptcy.
We moved to North Carolina to start over again by renting a house.
I started a ministry of giving away Bibles and literature in 2010. I had received a calling. With the Lord's help I built my credit back up to where I purchased another home in 2016.
I had a long lapse of time between 2013 until 2017 where my illness almost took my life.
Through all this confusion the Lord Jesus Christ safeguarded and protected me. I reflect back and see He has always been there.
I will tell you with my testimony that there is nothing that Jesus can't fix. He never fails.
I am living proof of a waste of many years in the world not knowing the blessings of God's love for me and His mercy. Don't do the same.
*I ask of you to give Jesus your life.*
With all things are possible with God!
My name is insignificant, God's power is my testimony and I give Him the glory.
I praise Almighty God, and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
I grew up in the South, when families had shadows and secrets. There wasn't cell phones, multiple Google sites, but computers were here.. My family's secret was incest. My mother had mental problems of her own and could not take of us., that is that! At the young age of 8, I walked down the church aisle and got baptized. I don't know now if I was saved ( a Christian) or not.
When I was 17, I ran away from the "family". My step-mother was confused, but my 'dad' knew why. I ran to my mother's house, where my sister was. I finally acted like a teenager, got into trouble!. I crawled back to the 'family' and had my child.
They adopted him, I went into the military. I was sent overseas and I was stationed in a nuclear missile unit. I look back on this time with fondness. I got married and started nursing school. Things were okay and my 'husband' went to his home and I followed. He was gone a lot with his job and I worked. We saw each other when we could. Apparently he wasn't only working, he was cheating. I found myself doing things that I am ashamed of, I went home to 'family'.
I got back into church and rededicated my life. I met my 'husband' in church, was working, missed a few Sundays, wasn't reading the Bible too much either.
I had my little girls over the next 4 years.
During my pregnancy with my youngest, my sister wrote the step-mother about the incest and that didn't blame her though. HE was dead a few years. The step-mother contacted me and I told her everything. She didn't say anything. That nite she wrote me an e-mail that in a nutshell, blamed me and my sister and wrote that she wanted nothing to do with me nor my one daughter, who was already 4. I'm still pregnant with my youngest daughter. I was devastated! I knew to reach to God for help and comfort. I absolutely knew that God was real, not just a 'ghost' that I grew up to believe on.
A couple of years later my faith was tested again. I found out that I had a brain tumor. I was the main bread winner with a disabled husband and 2 children under Age 5. I prayed for so hard and wept for my circumstances. I went under the knife with a brain surgeon and ENT surgeon in attendance for a 11 hours., with perfect peace.
I didn't know how or what would happen, but knew God had it under control. I left surgery with paralysis on Right side of face, including mouth. It looked like I had had a stroke. It wasn't over yet! I had a horrible headache and couldn't lift my head. My husband took me to hospital, I had swelling on the brain, I stayed in hospital for another week.
Slowly I came out of it, went home and got stronger. I went back to work 6 months later. I still had paralysis to my face, but you could understand me and I had my dexterity back. To say that it has been an easy journey is an understatement, but God has been with me every step of the way.
Thank you for your enpowering encouragement to other's who face terrible circumstances in their lives and the Lord Jesus Christ was always there!
