Testimony Tuesday #4 | Brent F.


Rantoul CofC | November 29, 2022



I've had Godly influences present early in my life similar to Timothy in a way because of the influence his Grandmother Lois and Mother Eunice had upon him as a youth. My Grandmother, Ruth, and Mother, Linda, had the same Godly influence on me from a young age. As a parent I now see the wisdom of raising a child up in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. When I was 14 one of the elders in Rockford took the time to study with me about the need for me turning my life over to Christ. He helped me to see my need for Jesus to be the leader and role model in my life. One cold October Wednesday evening 32 yrs ago, I had decided it was time to make the change and commitment, and although the water was very cold, the warmth I felt with the support I received from others was very welcome. I vividly recall that night was the best night of sleep I could remember knowing that I was saved, Jesus gave me all the confidence that I would rise to meet and join him in the sky if He came that night.

Since then, many other Godly influences have come into my life namely my wife Julie and so many other brothers and sisters that I am eternally grateful to God for such a blessing!
