I was sent to Church with my grandmother from an early age by my mother and father who were not Christians, but felt it was important for me learn good morals and that church was the best place for this. This was a seventh day Adventist church and was my first introduction to the word of god.
My grandmother tried to keep me in church for as long as possible and wanted me to stay even when my cousins left but as soon as I was able I left with the excuse that I wanted to play sports on Saturday. My time with my grandmother gave a respect for christians, evangelism and God as my grandmother was devote in her faith and was always praying.
I remember her praying from 4am in the morning next to the bed where I slept for 2 hrs before Church on Saturday. Throughout my teens and early twenties I was firmly in the world and behaved as the youth of the world behave but always had an understanding that there was a God and that one day I would have to live for him.
It was when I met my present wife and decided that we wanted to get married that we began a search for a suitable church. My wife was invited to a Christ Embassy cell meeting by a work colleague and invited me along.
The word of God for the first time made sense to me and I agreed to attend church on Sunday. On Sunday we arrived at the venue and I heard the service which was conducted by Pst Chuka Ibeachum.
I was aware immediately that there was something different about this Church and gave my life to Christ at some point over the next 2 weeks. It is a decision I do not regret.
Thank you Christ Embassy. .
