Hello my name is Brian Maciel and I am a 9th grader at Hesperia High School. Growing up it wasn't easy for either me my mom or my 2 sister's and 2 brother's. My mom was raising us as a single mother and it was tough for her so we would always move from house to house and school to school. Before Jesus Christ was in my life we were always in tough situations and didn't go to church. When I was about 7-8 my grandpa would take me and my sister to church with him every Sunday until he passed away in 2008. I received Christ about 2 years ago when we started going back to church. When we started going back to church we started to get blessed. Some of the thing's my family and myself received was us having a stable lifestyle. Also my mom got blessed with a guy that not only accepted her but also my brother's, sister's, and myself. Without the power of Christ I think we would still be in tough times. Now that Jesus is in my life we are closer we don't move from school to school or home to home and I want to take the next step in getting closer to Christ and that next step for me is getting baptized.
