In grade school, my family was confronted with a situation that endangered our lives and I began to doubt and question my salvation. I wondered if maybe I hadn’t fully understood or maybe I had been too young. I talked with my mom and she explained how Jesus Christ had paid it all, that it’s not about a prayer we pray but faith in Jesus Christ alone. I put my faith and trust in Jesus Christ alone that night and surrendered my life to Him. Growing up in ministry, I quickly learned how to “play the game”. I knew my Bible well and how to do all the right Christian things, but I wasn’t truly walking with the Lord. Despite knowing His Word, I didn’t know Who He really is.
Throughout my junior high and high school years, the Lord used various trials and circumstances to break me over myself and to point me to Him. After some very hard times, the Lord worked in my heart and showed me how little I knew of Him. For the first time I picked up my Bible, not because I thought I had to, but because I wanted to know Him as He truly is. He began revealing Himself to me through His Word and changing my heart to love Him. I stand in awe of all that God is and rejoice in His awesome mercy! I want to serve Him with my whole heart and my whole life wherever He leads.
The Lord has not lead me in the way I expected to go but I have had the privilege of seeing Him work in such awesome ways over last few years!
After my sophomore year of high school, I left my Christian school and finished school at home (or wherever I happened to be at the time). My dad resigned as Pastor of the church I grew up in, and I spent the next few years moving back and forth to wherever the Lord would have me serve at the time. He brought along opportunities for me to work in various children’s ministries and counseling teens, and then to assist my parents in their new ministry in Manning, IA. He gave me the opportunity to counsel at Amazing Grace Baptist Camp in the summer of 2016, and then at Camp Utibaca this last summer. Getting to see Him work in the hearts of so many teens and children, to see Him change their lives, and to watch them fall in love with the God of the Bible is the most amazing thing I could ever hope to see! I want always to see that!
I am so excited to serve with the Frazor Evangelistic Team, and to see once again the Lord’s awesome power at work in His people! I praise Him for all that He is doing and all that He will do!
