I was a young boy when Jesus spoke to my heart. The introduction to the faith began at Kildonan Presbyterian Church. The Rev. Brian Penny had donated his time and invited boys and girls to a youth group. The place was the historical Nesbitt Hall with the old stone walls from the 1850s. This was mostly a well-meaning way of sharing the gospel and opening the minds of teenagers.
So it was at the age of 13 that a young lad knew the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and received a wonderful desire to study the Holy Bible, which my grandmother had graciously and lovingly given to me.
He made my words like a sharp sword; He hid me in the shadow of His hand. He made me like a sharpened arrow; He hid me in His quiver (Isaiah 49:2 HCSB).
Several years later, I was introduced to the
Spirit-filled (born-again) experience at a non-denominational church. The date of my baptism is April 2, 1972 at Faith Temple with Pastor Ingrid Bergner, a prophetess. Yeshua (Jesus) came to bring shalom, which means completeness to both our souls and our bodies.
