    Salvation story:

    When I was 16 the Lord opened the eyes of my heart to see that I did not have a relationship with Him through faith in Jesus Christ. I knelt in the woods of MS and prayed, "Lord, I confess that I am sinner. I believe that you sent Jesus to died on the cross for my sins. Please forgive me of my sin. I give my life to you and as best as I know how, I want Jesus to be the King of my life. Thank you for saving me, amen." The Lord saved me and gave me a new heart that contained a newfound love for Him and others.
