It was a Saturday evening about 7pm after having supper at the catholic secondary school I was attending at the time in 1995. I remember I walked up to my friends who were talking and joined in the conversation.
My friend at that time called Winnie had several challenges at their home, they were going through serious financial setbacks and she was telling our classmate about it. At that time Jacinta was born again and was attending a fellowship at school.
I remember she told her that all she had to do, was to give her life to Christ and come attend the fellowship then all would be well. She later led her to Christ and I also said the confession prayer under my breath though she did not tell me to.
Infact I was an intruder, sort of eavesdropping as per say. It was my first time to hear about the born again.
since I was born because I was brought up in the catholic faith and with strict parents who never allowed us move out of the house like that. The reason why I paid much attention to the conversation at that time was because we were also going through something similar at home and the reason why I even became committed was because she said when you pray this prayer and become born again all your troubles cease.
I became more committed than them and led several people to Christ and sadly by the time I was completing secondary school they were no longer committed. But as for me it has been only upward and forward, I went to another secondary school for my form 5 an 6 and was made the fellowship leader the fellowship was turned around because of my presence there.
I joined a bible believing church . Most of my family members gave their lives to Christ at that time including my cousins and most of my relatives but I was the first one to get born again among them all.
At that church I was made a cell leader had different cells under me. Then later God joined me to Christ Embassy where I am an ordained pastor now doing mighty things.
I know that surely God handpicked me with the way I gave my life to Christ. .
