                                                                                                                           7-25-01
                                                     My Testamony

      I was saved at age thirty-one,received the Baptism of the Holy Ghost
      one year later.I asked God to give me the genuine baptisim.I didn't
      want that which looked improper to me,the coaxing,long drawnout
      prompting with gestures kind.I entered the Pentacostal church
      In 1974,prayed to God for the "genuine" Baptisim,He told me to "wait".
      One word which I have become very familiar with over the years.
      I received the Baptisim of the Holy Ghost,in a small Pentacostal church,
      In a blink as you go thru town, of London,California.Situated in the middle
      of the cotton fields,just south of Fresno,California.I spoke in Tongues for
      three hours,with no one prompting me,so I know it's "genuine".Since it
      is "Genuine" to me,I neither promote,nor deny the  use of Tongues in a
      believers Spiritual life.All I know is that I am edified within me,and I
      understand  in my spirit,that I speak directly to God through the Holy
      Spirit,in my heart. I have spent these last twenty-eight years,walking
      with my God,through many trials,and troubles.In all of them I waited,to
      see "All things work together for good to them who love the Lord,and
      for those called according to His purpose".I know that God teaches,in the
      midst of pain and suffering.I could do no less than lay down my life
      for Christ,should He ask. I do not just speak the Word,I live it.I have a
      good sense of humour,as I believe my God does also.I have worked many
      times in concert with the Holy Spirit.I believe Love to be the very nature
      of God,and that Obedience is one of His most important precepts.I move
      by my Faith,which God gives a same measure to everyone.It is what you  
      Choose to do with that measure of Faith  is what creates a hunger for
      God. My wife went home to the Lord,on may 24,1994,one day before her
      forty-fifth birthday.She suffered extreme severe pain due to Bone Marrow
      Cancer,and her passing brought the blessing,of "all things work together"
      In that the good that came through her passing,brought her release,
      from her pain,and she will never suffer again.My son a week before she
      passed away,was admitted to the same hospital with Juvenile Diabetes,
      and God saw to the needs of both of those I loved that day.My son age 24
      has found his personal relationship,with his God,but not before Doing his
      drugs,and experiencing victory in Jesus by  renewing his faith in his God.
                My daughter,21yrs,I being drawn back to Jesus,but it is slower
      going for her,as she has issues with God in relation to her mothers death.
      I am more than a father to them now,I am their Spiritual mentor,and my
      name is "daddy" because this is me in the l
ast years of my life.I have
      worn,many labels for God,I have been around long enough too.What I
      value the most for all my life pursuits,is destroying the selfishness within
      me, Which is taught everyone from infancy, by being in this world,until the
      acceptance of Jesus Christ as a personal savior.Then doing my part,in
      asking,seeking,and knocking throughout my lifetime,and striving for
      Christlikeness until He takes me in the translation of the church,or I
      take a dirt nap and beat you all there. In His most Gracious Love,

                                                            In His love,   lampwicke   xxx
