Ultimate Summer Highlight

The following is Anne's written testimony. After reading it, I'm sure that you'll agree that of all the fun we had this summer, all of the time that we spent together, this was by far the biggest highlight. Anne was baptized and became a member of Faith Baptist Church on July 8, 2007. Video to follow shortly!

My name is Anne Gray. I am 12 years old, almost 13.

I had prayed for a brother or a sister several times. I had a twin brother named Bryan but I Wanted another brother smaller that I could teach. God answered that prayer by giving us a special baby boy. After Betty had Jack I started to listen to the sermons. Every night I thanked God and prayed to Him. Then I realized I had questions. I asked my Mom and Dad about them.

After talking to my parents and reading some verses I realized that Sin keeps us from God. It has been said in the Bible, that NO sin should be in the presence of the Lord. And Christ died on the cross to pay for our sins.

So on that night, June 1, 2007. I confessed my sins and believed with all my heart and asked Jesus to throw my sins as far as the east is from the west, and to forgive my sins. And now I want to get baptized and spread his good word.
