I praise God for the privilege of testifying for my Lord and Savior. My job led me to Washington, but like other jobs I had had in the previous year, I did not hold it very long because I was a slave to alcohol.
Soon I was without money and had no place to stay. Someone told me about the Central Union Mission. Praise God for that, for on the night of June 4, 1952, I was in the Mission services and heard the Word of God for the first time in my life.
God’s Holy Spirit spoke to me from His Holy Word, which told me that I was a sinner in need of salvation. Romans 6:23, “The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
I could not save myself. God had provided for my salvation by sending His own Son the Lord Jesus Christ our Lord to die on Calvary’s Cross as a substitute for my sins. God’s Holy Spirit convicted me. I repented and called upon God to save me for Jesus’ sake. That night my sins were washed under the blood of the Lamb.
