The first 22 years of my life could be characterized as being hedonistic. It was full of immorality, selfishness, and ungodliness. God certainly was not a priority. However, on the morning of June 4, 2003, after a heavy weekend of partying and promiscuous activities, I awoke to an extreme conviction. This conviction I had never experienced before was puzzling. I knew that the life I was living was completely wrong. Throughout the day, I was telling my co-workers that, I had to change my life. On the way home from work, I burst out in tears. When I got to my residence, I began to pray (I had not prayed in months, if not years) and I accepted Christ as Lord. The next morning when I awoke, the conviction was gone. It felt as if a weight was lifted. Immediately, I began telling everyone about what happened to me. I stopped partying, drinking, promiscuous activities, and etc. without delay. In addition, the Lord had put a great thirst for knowledge within my soul. Three weeks later, I was deployed to Pakistan (served in Air Force). I attended the chapel services and read the Bible regularly and could not stop telling people about Jesus. While I was deployed, I knew the Lord was calling me to preach the Gospel and to pursue higher education; thus, I have been doing ever since. I graduate from Liberty University in Dec with a B.S. in Religion. I'll be starting seminary in the Fall of 09. I'll be attending Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Tx. I have several primary vocations that I want to fulfill: Teaching (Collegiate Level) and Pastoral Ministry. Also, authoring on topics of Christian theology, practical theology, and possibly constructing various plays illustrating historical Christianity and contemporary Christianity. If God permits, I will pursue and fulfill!
