Would you like to grow in your walk with Jesus Christ? Do you desire to do the things that Jesus did, and more?
I knew there had to be more to this Christian walk than I was experiencing and I began to ask God what was missing. An entire realm was opened to me. He began to show me things in my life that I needed to purge before I could grow. As I purged my life from evil and hindrances that were holding me back I experienced freedom like never before. I became addicted to repentance because every time I was obedient I was blessed with more power for miracles and encounters with Jesus. I was touched by the Holy Spirit and began to finally grow spiritually.
Now I can hear the Holy Spirit clearly and see in the Spirit as the Holy Spirit allows. Now when I pray for people I see them get healed. My passion for the lost has grown and I have introduced many souls to Jesus Christ and teaching others how to witness and go on treasure hunts.
The love and compassion of God has motivated me to love on the homeless in ways I would have never imagined. My entire walk with God is my highest priority in life and He has changing me to look more like Him. I never knew being a Christian could be so fun and serving God could be so satisfying.
