~ My Testimony ~
For the first 17 years of my life, I was a proud atheist. I wanted to be a good person without religion, believing all Christians to be self-righteous hypocrites with a "god" as fake as they were, though I felt alone in searching for my purpose. But when I lost my dad at age 15 in a freak accident, my world came apart, and I questioned my beliefs in my desperation, briefly wondering if maybe there was a god that would help me through a world without my father. One year later, I became good friends with someone who wasn't like other kids at my school. I eventually learned that he believed in God, and grew curious; he wasn't fake or judgemental like other Christians I'd known of were. One day, knowing my views and wanting to give me an inside perspective, he invited me to his church. I decided I'd go just for his sake. He demonstrated genuine concern, one time even sitting out of a service to talk to me about what made his belief in God a solid thing. When I told him I was still skeptical, he wanted to know why, and so I told him what had happened to my family. It turned out, as he shared, that his story was shockingly similar to mine. With some other things happening that day which seemed no coincidence (people in Haiti praising God on the news after losing everything, him showing me a song on Youtube about God giving me a destiny without him really knowing its significance to me), I felt I had no reason not to believe in God anymore. He then told me he felt that God wanted him to pray for me. And I did something I never thought I'd ever do before -- I accepted.
That was the start of a journey that got me where I am today. I did two years of urban missions training and prophetic outreach in the community called Frogtown in Saint Paul, and am now working towards moving out on my own. I hope someday soon to start making money off my artwork and bringing glory to God through that, and whatever else He may have in store for me.
