I fell in love with Jesus when I was 3 years old and started reading the Bible when I was 5 on my grandmother's lap. I have never stopped. I am 72 years old now and have no idea how many times I've read God's word all the way through.
My Dad died when I was 11 years old and God became my father in a more complete way.
My Mom taught us to watch for Jesus' hand in all things. IE: He brought the rain so our crops would grow, etc.
I have been a Christian for 69 years. I am not ordained nor have I been to Bible College or Seminary. The Holy Spirit teaching me God's word and pastors using God's word have taught me what I know. I am a lay Missionary who has the gifts of Exhortation, Word of Wisdom, Word of Knowledge and Working Miracles. God has used me as a lay missionary for many years. Our church in KS had me on their ministry list as a lay missionary. I could feel their prayers.
