I just finished the Core module and figured I would connect with all of you!!
My name is Josiah. I am 32 years old. I am a father of 3 girls and 1 boy. My wife was a Mexican national and is now a Unites States Citizen. We met on the mission field of Acuna Mexico and currently live in Missouri. It is truly by the mercy of God that I have been given the privilege to carry the beautiful name of Jesus while remaining on this earth.
I was a very heavy drug addict and drinker as a youth and gave myself to all kinds of debauchery, all before 18 years of age. But one day I called upon the Lord and asked for a life changing experience and said "If You love me as much as everyone says You do, and if you are who you say you are, I have to know You! I was saved in jail a few months later in which I was truly changed into a new creature over night. A divine reality of Ezekiel 36:24-27 and 2 Corinthians 5:17!!
It was in that cell that I came to know and fall desperately in love with Jesus as my Saviour and Lord! I owe Him my every breath and second of every day, and now, as Paul said, “Woe is unto me if I preach not the gospel”. It has now been 14 years since my conversion and I have gotten and continue to get many and daily opportunities to take the gospel to anybody that will listen! I minister more in the streets, work and in the jail than anywhere else, though I have and do preach in churches.
Thank you and blessings to you!
