Smokey's Testimony

The way I came to Christ is a long and winding tale. A shortened version follows.
I was dragged to church as a kid, but we stopped going after my mom died when I was 11. God was fathful though. I remember being invited to vacation Bible school, at a neighborhood church and I had a friend in high school who was a Christian, and she invited me to a youth for Christ rally. It made me very uncomfortable. I asked God to forgive my sins one night after that, but told no one. I went away to college, and drifted away, the usual college stuff, drinking swearing and sex. Yet God was faithful. I kept bumping into Christians. In the dorm, the cafeteria, even in my fraternity! I received Christ as savior about 10 months after graduating from college when a co-worker shared with me on our lunch break at 3:00am one morning. I was working for a contract security company on the midnight shift at the time. That was in 1976. The man who shared with me was fired within a couple months, and I didnít get much discipleship. It was just me and my pocket New Testament. But God was faithful, and seemingly out of the blue I got a call from a fraternity buddy who invited me to a Bible study at EMU. The funny thing is he didnít know I had become a Christian! Of course I accepted! Through that study I found a church, and I was baptized in May of 1979. I have been an active member of Crossroads Community Baptist church since that time.
 Iíve taught adult Sunday school classes with the college students, single adults, and married adults, and I have served as a deacon for one 3 year term. I've been married for 14 wonderful years. My wife and I are currently active in the Choir, and occasionally teaching in our adult Sunday school class. We both work for the University of Michigan Hospitals in Ann Arbor.

Amen Brother Smokey!

I always love to hear how God works in the lives of people.

Love In Christ,
Tom

Ephesians 3:11-13 NASB  This was in accordance with the eternal purpose which He carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and confident access through faith in Him. Therefore I ask you not to lose heart at my tribulations on your behalf, for they are your glory.
