I started my journey with Christ in my teen years and then totally yielded my life to Him when I was about 21. I'm not the same as I was then, and yet He loved me then, and now I love Christ. I feel like a camping knife having served him in so many different ways over the years in preaching, bible studies, soul-winning, or simply praying for others.
