VV Baptism Testimonies

Patrick Salsberry

I've been in and out of church all of my life, and I never really believed.  I didn’t grow up in a Christian family and so I never had anyone teach me the bible or what it means to believe in Jesus Christ.      I joined the army and that started me thinking about God.   It wasn't until my son was born (05-24-15) that I felt I need to change my ways.   When my son Edward was born, he ended up having jaundice. My wife and I felt like we were without hope.    We were in and out of the hospital and it crushed me to see my son sick.   My wife prayed constantly for Edward.  Eventually my wife told me to try and pray. So I did and I asked God to help us.  God answered my prayers.  I couldn't believe that God answerd my prayers.  God used my son to save me.  I put my faith in Jesus during that time. I believe that he died on the cross for my sins and was resurrected.  Jesus saved me from hell and sin.  Every now and again I look at our son and I get all teary eyed because of what God did.  I am thankful to God for giving us this chance to see him grow, laugh and play.
