HDC Victorville | Christmas Baptisms

Destiny Briceno

I grew up in church and always knew what was right. Growing up into adulthood I was not making the best of choices and always felt convicted to return to church and do the right thing, but I struggled with making better choices and finding a church I loved to attend. As the years went on I was not in a good place and my marriage was on the brink of divorce. I gave my husband an ultimatum, church or divorce. So our friends had invited us to HDC Victorville around the same time and I instantly feel in love, my husband not so much, but he continued attending with me to make me happy. I started serving, joined a small group but wanted to wait to get baptized with my husband but he was never ready so neither was I. As the next few years went by I continued to struggle with my husband and fell out of church again. In January of this year, I had a life changing experience which threw me back into church. This time I gave it all to Jesus, at the end of one of the services I did the ABC's and fully excepted Jesus Christ as my savior. I am tired of waiting to "be ready" to get baptized and want to end this year by showing my Oikos what Jesus has done for me in my life. After fully excepting Jesus into my life I am now able to trust His plans for my life and show others what a loving God he is.
