VV Baptism Testimonies

Desmond Drischell

Even though I was raised in a Christian home and had a pastor as my father, I led a life mired in sin and guided by my own desires and needs often hurting family and friends closest to me in the process.

 It was at the lowest point in my life when I was faced with the serious legal implications of my past sins, that I fell into the arms of Jesus and gave my life to Him. My relationship with Him continues to be further strengthened by attending weekend Christian retreats, through missions work to Honduras and in prisons, and by surrounding myself with other believers in my oikos small group.

 By the power of Jesus Christ, my savior, I have been transformed from a man of bitterness, deceit and lack of self-control to a man who is forgiving, honest and more patient in my life decisions.  I sing praise to the Lord for all He has done for me and His promises to me for the future!
