"I had been feeling God working on my heart and understood that I needed Jesus and the forgiveness and salvation that his sacrifice on the cross afforded me. One day in school we watched the film "A thief in the night". It was then that I knew for sure it was time to accept Christ. I went to one of my teachers, Mrs. Nan Phipps, and told her that I was a sinner and needed to be saved. She took me to the chapel and prayed with me and then I prayed and put my trust an faith in Jesus and His resurrection."
