VV Baptism Testimonies

Katelyn Weis

I grew up knowing about God and I’ve always had a pretty good relationship with him. Unfortunately, when I was four years old my mom died. At the time it didn’t affect me because I was so young, but as I got older I found myself very angry with God for taking her away from me. It was especially hard for me on occasions like Mother’s Day and I just got so angry at Him. During this time, I started to go to High Desert Church.  On that first day I attended, I felt like the message was directly speaking to me. I realized that I didn’t have to worry because my mom was with God. I also realized God does everything for a reason.  Though I didn’t understand, I continued my life worshipping God and I thought I was doing pretty good. I was blessed with the opportunity to go to camp this year.   While at camp I realized I wasn’t being a true Christian. I thought I was doing well because I prayed and went to church but right after church I would go out and continue the same lifestyle as before. God isn’t satisfied if you live your life only halfway for him. He wants your all. So, I made a decision at camp that I was going to give my life completely to God and get baptized. Ever since camp I’ve been reading The Bible and I’ve felt growth in my faith. I want to love God so much that when people see me, they think, ‘’I want to be like her. I want to worship the God that she worships”. This is just a small step on my way to becoming a world changer.
