I arrived in June 1973, and it was here that I was first exposed to church and where I first heard the gospel of Jesus Christ. I accepted Jesus as my personal Savior and was baptized in June 1974. I found a solid Christian foundation, strong morals, encouragement, discipline and trained to have a good work ethic and be responsible and accountable. This, along with the love and compassion of the people of this ministry, shaped my character and contributed to the man I am today.
