Hello, my name is Mario. I was raised catholic, lost contact with God for the majority of my life once I started college. My testimonial for finding Jesus is a long (30+ year) empty and painful journey (death, divorce, near bankruptcy, failed significant post divorce relationship, and cancer) that eventually has led me to stop doing it “my way” and trusting His way. I made this decision to follow Jesus while I was alone for several days on the shores of Lake Tahoe, California in late Sept 2018. I was baptized in May 2019.
Where are you from?
I am originally from small town in Southern California but have been living in North Texas since 2001.
What led you to join Connect?
As a newbie, born again Christian, I have been reading and seeking as much information as I can about the Christian faith. I had gone through Rick Warren’s “purpose driven life” and was going through various pastors videos when I stumbled upon a YouTube video featuring Ravi and I was mesmerized. This led me to his website and here I am…
I saw something about “the core” curriculum and believe it is something I would like to take to learn more about Jesus. I would be appreciative, if anyone could point me towards that set of classes.
How do you hope to contribute?
At this stage of my Christian development, it will most likely by asking questions. I feel I have a lot to learn. I am looking forward to interacting with fellow Christians to grow spiritually.
Thank you for the opportunity to participate in your esteemed company.
