My purpose in life is to serve God and my family, to teach my children what I have learned in church and pass it on to them. To be an example, a spiritual leader in my household and to do the best I can at my job that God has chosen for me.
Prayer Warrior Type: I am a soul winning warrior, and a personal warrior, and a kingdom warrior.
Life Verse: Psalm 91
He who dwells in the shelter of the most high will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, my refugee and my fortress, My God in whom I trust.
When I read this in the morning before work I feel protected from anything and everything, nothing can hurt me because I am under God’s wing, and I feel I can do anything to serve God better and better each day.
Testimony: Before I found God, I was an alcoholic, a drug addict, and a womanizer. In Sept. of 2012, I ran into a girl I used to know 20 years ago, and I think she was heaven sent, because she saved my life. That girl is now my wife, Jo Ann. She introduced me to Fortress Church. One Sunday we went to Pastor Randy’s house for a connect group, while I was there, I felt a surge go through my body and it took my breath away for a split second. Right then and there I knew the Holy Spirit was talking to me, I decided to give my life to Jesus that day, and when we started the Talmidim class that first week, I felt that same power surge go through my body again, and took my breath away, so now I know, I am where I belong, here with the Lord.
