In March, 1985 my son came home from college to minister God to me. He led me to know the one true living God. I remembered at first, I was angry. I didn’t understand his speaking. I doubted! How could my son speak to me in such a strong way? The more he spoke the more I listened and was convinced at his total belief in and commitment to God’s way.

He shared about salvation and how God could come into my heart and make His home if only I would open to Him. The speaking that really touched me was that I would share eternity with God. The tears began to flow as I called on the Lord. God touched me and I touched God.

On a Thanksgiving weekend conference (11/26/85) in Newton, Massachusetts I was baptized and became a member of the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:13). After that I met with the church in Hartford, now the local church in Newington, Connecticut. What a glorious day! I realized my life now belonged to God. I saw that the joy and oneness in Christ’s Body is absolutely a matter of life, and the only way to see the Body is by God’s revelation (John 10:10, 17:21; Ephesians 1:17-18).

The meetings I attend locally and by going to Witness Lee’s summer and winter conferences caused me to realize we are not here for man’s needs but for God’s needs.

I thank and praise God daily for the gift of my son and for the gift of life I received through his ministering of God to me. I am not my own. I belong to God.
