Ladonna's Story -
 
I would like to share with you how I came to have peace not only in the good and fun times in my life but also in and through the tough and difficult times.

I began going to church when I was about five years old.  I was at church often, sometimes I would sleep, but other times I would be hearing about Jesus and how God sent him to die on the cross for people's sin, because He loved people so much.

I was probably around eleven  when I began to realize that it was for MY sins that Jesus died on the cross.  One night soon after I turned twelve I had a dream that I died and was in hell, and I didn't want to be there.  It was soon after that during a revival at our church that I ask Jesus to forgive me of my sin and become my Savior.  I followed his example of baptism on Easter Sunday that year, which is a picture of His death and resurrection.  Tho that has been many years ago, I still need to ask his forgiveness often and He is always near.  

There have been many things since then when He has walked with me and in all of them He has given me His peace, I know when I die I will be with Him forever.  I also know that if you don't have the peace of knowing you will be with Him for eternity that all you need to do is admit that you are a sinner, believe that Jesus died on the cross to forgive your sins and confess Him as Savior and Lord in your live and He will give to you this peace that I have.
