So after I accepted Christ as my Saviour, I needed to turn from my sin. Luke 24:47 says, “And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.” I knew that it was not going to be easy turning away from sin and it was not an easy task for me. For although I was saved, I was trapped in sin that still held onto me for years (more on that later). After a year of being saved the Lord really began to work on my heart about Mark 16:15 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” You see I had always enjoyed it when missionaries would come into my church. I thought it was cool; all of these people going to far off exciting places. Since getting saved, it began to take on a new light. All I could think of is the fact that there were people who did not know Jesus and who He is as it says in 1 John 4:10: “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” They did not know that Jesus was the Son of God and that He had paid their sin debt. I did not like that :(. That year, now 2010, there was an earthquake in Haiti. Everybody seemed to focus on that place sending food and medical care. I on the other hand said who is taking Jesus to them?? For without Him the end of their life would come and this would be their plot: Revelation 20:15 “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” As you can imagine that did not sit well with me. So here I was a year later back at Camp Victory hearing the Gospel message and the Holy Spirit came and said “Will you go?” That night I went forward and started the daily process of surrendering my life to be a missionary.
