I was only nine years old when I asked Jesus into my heart at a Christian Camp. My life was fairly good because my Mom loved me so much and always prayed over me. Later in life I married and had two children, but the marriage only lasted six years. I was left to raise two children alone. I did not have much money; so, I received help from the State.

I was only nine years old when I asked Jesus into my heart at a Christian Camp.

Many years passed. My children grew up and left home, but by now I had a drinking problem. I did remarry in 1980 to a wonderful man, but my drinking did not stop. I was invited to a Church in 1984, where I had an encounter with the Holy Spirit. When I went to the alter I was transformed. I was delivered from drinking and smoking. A few months later, I was also healed of a severe female problem.

I tell people how I went from welfare and food stamps to managing two condos.

I attended Church regularly, started to tithe, and then went to Bible School. I now have a Christian husband, a nice home, and two rental units. I tell people how I went from welfare and food stamps to managing two condos. I have been healed many times by Jesus and am always amazed at the faithfulness of God. I am now 70 years old and continue to love and serve the Lord. I tell others of his saving grace, his healing power, deliverance from bondage, and his provision.
