Global Forgiveness Day

 

The Day to Forgive,

the Day to be Forgiven!


Saviour's Day?  Before Him...

 

Saviour's Day? When was the last time you told someone your story, your testimony of how you became a born again Christian...what your life was like before Him?

That’s what Saviour’s Day is all about. It’s celebrated just one day a year (1st Sunday in May) but hopefully it’s something we do much more often than that! Saviour’s Day is not just a time to share the Gospel…it’s a time to share your story.  When you tell someone about your life before Christ, how you lived and how He found you, the circumstances that brought you to accept His love and forgiveness, we are blessed and encouraged!

Everyone has a story. We’d love to hear how your relationship with the Lord began. To add your testimony please E-MAIL it to us.

I was very sick...

I was very sick, and I wanted to be healed, so I tusted God that He would heal me and I came to trust Him.

...in 1966, my brother died tragically,...

Briefly, in 1966, my brother died tragically, our neighbours had sympathy on us and invited my sister and I to vacation Bible school that summer.  We received the Gideon's King James vest pocket gold coloured centennial N.T. Psalms and Proverbs.  It would be Canada's 100th birthday the next year.  That Bible was a little brick of gold to me.  Only 10, I struggled with the Old English but saw Life and Light in God's Word to me.  I held that book to my chest and cried so deeply.  My mother said, 'Your father and I have nothing to do with that.'  God visited me many times, without words, a pervasive presence that gave me peace I'd never known before.  13 years later, I accepted the invitation of a T.V. preacher in Toronto, confessing Jesus as Saviour and me a sinner.  I was changed inside (born again I'd learn later).  I attended church for many years, was baptized, evangelized.  God has never left me yet I've wandered away many years back and forth. Our life doesn't end at conversion, it begins.  God saves us and will never leave us or forsake us, Heb.13.5.  We make mistakes and He still loves us.  We zig-zag our way to heaven, meandering here, wandering there, all the way.  Jesus is Lord.  Thank you for this opportunity to share.

Our neighbours moved in...

Our neighbours moved in when I was nine. They were Christians and invited us kids (who weren't) to Vacation Bible school that summer. My brother (7) went and came home telling all about the fun stuff he did.  They reinvited to me to come. I resisted until the very last day (I wanted to be cool) when I was so curious and couldn't stand not finding out what my brother was all excited about. So I went. I accepted Jesus that day, fully understanding what it meant and I felt Him literally "fall into" me. I was invited to Sunday School that weekend, and re-accepted Jesus into my heart a second time at the alter call, just to make sure He was good and truly in me. He's been close to me ever since; good thing, as I wouldn't have made it this far without Him on my life's journey.

He's my whole life, my Love, and wows me daily! Even when I am a stubborn child of His.

I first came to know Jesus...

I first came to know Jesus as my personal Savior at the age of five when I
attended a Kids Krusade meeting at my church. I was very shy at that time,
and I found myself unable to respond to the altar call. When I returned home
that night the missed opportunity was still weighing heavily on my heart.
Finally, I couldn't bear it anymore, and I called out for my parents to come
to my room and pray with me. We knelt down together beside my bed and they
led me through the prayer of salvation. I will never forget how I felt that
night when I knew that I was now a child of God forever. My life has taken
many twists and turns since then, but God has always remained faithful. Even
during times of rebellion, and the consequences of poor choices, He has been
here walking beside me. I have seen firsthand what His grace and mercy can
do. Jesus is the strength of my life, and I will always be grateful for the
ministry team that brought His message of forgiveness, redemption, and hope
all those years ago.

I was a child...

 I was a child of wrong doings by a family member, and was married at a very young age. Having 5 children by the time I was 30 and married 5 times by the age 38. I was in prison and a meth addiction but God's mercy healed me of all my addictions and sorrows. In January 2010 I asked God into my life and I was baptized on Good Friday 2011. Praise God, He is good! My life has changed so much and I've become a witness for Jesus Christ my Lord.. Thank you: Kriste
