As a teenager, I realized God was dealing with me about my relationship to Him. I was working at a fast food restaurant when my uncle who was the youth pastor came by and invited me to a youth activity at his house. I went to the youth activity where a gospel message and invitation was shared. God’s Holy Spirit convicted me of sin, and of His righteousness and of judgement. I understood that God provided His only begotten Son as an expression of His love for me and as a payment for my sin. I repented of my sin that night and I placed my faith on Jesus as my Lord and Savior. God changed my life that night and now I have the privilege and joy of serving Jesus.
