While attending AWANA as a 9 year old my pastor would close out the evening by praying “if any child here doesn’t know you don’t let them sleep until they do” and through this I went home and could not sleep. I opened my Bible and read John 3:16-18 and asked Jesus into my heart to be my Savior. From then on I have been working hard to follow him, even though I struggled with knowing that my mission field is the one at home and not abroad.
