Testimony_HopeMasonBaptized: 8/2/2015

When I was 8 years old I was at VBS at our church, Pine Grove Baptist and I remember after class one day Mrs. Holly Ormon asked if any of us wanted to be saved.  I raised my hand that day and the following Sunday walked down the aisle to make it public- not really understanding what I had done.

     Although I have grown up in Church and always attended everything for the children and the youth and have always read my Bible, I started struggling a few weeks ago about the fact that I might not really be saved.  As the Holy Spirit continued working on me, I came to the realization that I wasn’t saved, but kept making excuses to not say anything.

     One night at camp, I heard Aniston telling her story about receiving Christ that night and then Grace started sharing.  As I listened to Grace, I realized our stories were about the same as far as making a decision at VBS.  I started crying and Grace went and got Mrs. Beth Matlock.  Mrs. Beth talked with me and I prayed and asked God to forgive me of my sin.  I can now say with confidence that I have received Christ as Lord and Savior of my life!
