VV Baptism Testimonies

LT Burks

My path had started out very rocky from the time I was 14. I had struggled with addiction the entire time until just recently, when a friend invited me to go to HDC. I liked it. But at first I think I liked spending the time with her more than the actual services. But after a while I noticed that it started to effect me in ways that I never new I could be affected. It started rocking my core. I started questioning the things I did and was wondering if they where right or not.

And then my friend purchased and gave me my first Bible. With a deep interest of the story of Revelation, I began to read it and I started to understand the love that God truly has for us and I began to develop a love for Him. Two weeks after I picked up my first Bible and actually started reading it, I came out of the closet as a drug addict and started getting help. After the first week of being sober for the first time since fourteen, I broke down on my hands and knees and prayed that Christ would take my life and guide me in his footsteps. And that is how it happened.
