I didnít ask to be a Christian!
I didnít want to be a Christian!
To be a Christian was the last thing I wanted!
But here I am today, proudly confessing in print that I am a
I have returned to the Good Lord God after over 40 years in the wilderness.
April 2006, while my wife was ill in hospital here in Tenerife, she was visited by people
from the Christian Fellowship, who prayed unceasingly for her, both at the hospital and at
the church. When my wife passed away a short time later the Christian Fellowship was a tower
of strength to me, and to show my appreciation I decided to attend a couple of Sunday
services to thank all the wonderful people that had offered up their prayers for my wife and
for myself, and then to revert back to my former way of living.
It didnít turn out that way.
Talking, listening and watching the Christian Fellowship congregation, it came to me that
there must be more to life than the one I was
leading, so I became a regular face at the Sunday morning services.
This led me to attending
an Alpha Course, Prayer Meetings and Bible Studies and before long I found myself talking to
the Lord in prayer.
One of the Lord's answers to a question that I was asking was that I
should open my heart to Him.
I tried this, but failed miserably initially, the Devil had
other ideas; he had been my companion for so long that I found it very difficult to come to
terms with what was happening to me. The name Jesus kept entering my mind at all hours of
the day and night, and after much internal strife, personal problems, conversations with,
and the help of Pastor Adrian, my dear friend Trish (who incidentally had introduced my wife
to the Fellowship) and all of my new found friends at STCF, I finally had had to admit
that the Lord had entered my heart and that I was a re-born Christian and that the Lord is
with me at all times.
The Lord Jesus has turned my life around into something that I didnít
think could be possible. If he can do it for me, he can do it for you!
