Fellow Brothers & Sisters
First I thank my Lord and Saviour Christ Jesus and everyone here at Rapture Forums. In these latter days and age of "doom & gloom." God has granted me a miracle. Jesus has answered prayers in such a way, that there is no doubt in my mind it is Gods Holy Spirit who has given me a miracle. A Baptist Church to worship my Lord in.
Here is how it happened. I went to see my neurologist and on the way out of the hospitals medical arts building. I needed to rearrange papers and medications I was carry. Before the exit there is a slim desk the person who meets, greets and assists patients at the entrance way into/out of the hospital. The station happened to be empty.
On the desk was a tract from the Grace Independent Baptist Church. I read the tract and could understand this Church is Pre-Tribulation, strictly an Bible teaching Ministry. The Pastors core values he preaches are the same as what we believe on this community. If any teaching does not line up Biblically with the Holy Word of God it will not be taught. Praise be to God
The miracle to me is, is the Church is maybe 10-15 miles away from where I live!!! I can hardly believe such good fortune especially today. I called the phone number to get in contact with the Pastor. The first call I fumbled a little bit. So I called again a day or so later after not receiving any reply.
I figured he saw it was a local telephone number and perhaps chalked it up to a crank call. Turned out He was out of town. I have attended one Bible study class so far on 3/11/09 and on the 29th of this month I will be Baptised.
I am so excited I have to share the good news with everyone. This is exactly what was missing in my life until now. The fellowship is wonderful. I feel at welcomed and at home where I belong.
There is only one thing I feel bad about and that is, the need to ask for a ride, both to and from Church because i can't drive a motor vehicle due to epilepsy. It does not feel right imposing on someone like that. Other than the ride issue. I feel so much better after praying with the Pastor to be saved and confessing Jesus is my Lord and Saviour with both my heart and mouth. Thank you Jesus for saving me.
I have no plans to leave this community, you are all valuable friends to me. I'll still continue to pray for those of us asking for prayers and Gods help---though I don't post it so.
I am so excited. I apoligize if i'm all over the place with this post.
I'm sorry this may appear jumbled. When one really hears the voice of the Lord calling you, for the first time in ones life its so wonderful nothing else matters ....Thank You Jesus 2:
God Bless :)
