“A few years ago, I never would have dreamed that I would be a Christian, let alone have such confidence in my Lord, Jesus Christ. Thank you for your wonderful ministry.”

Dear AIG,

I was raised in the Christian faith, while I knew the major stories of the Bible, I was never told why I should believe them to be true. In high school, I fell into the wrong crowd. I spent seven years living as if there was no God. I felt justified, because that was what the scientists and historians told me.

A few years ago, I was at a crossroads in my life. I felt so empty. I wanted to believe. I even spent a considerable amount of time at my local bookstore, reading through Christian books that dealt with origins. Yet, all I saw was a pitiful attempt at trying to fit evolution into the Bible. I was greatly disheartened. No one seemed to take the bible seriously. If this was the best Christianity had to offer, I wanted no part of it.

On a rare occasion, I still gave into my mothers urgings and went to church. One Sunday I looked in the bulletin and learned that a neighboring church was giving a seminar on Science and the Bible. I made it to the second night of the conference. Ken Ham was giving a two-day lecture on creation and evolution. I was completely blown away. After a couple hours of speaking, I remember Ken Ham reviewing the evidence he had presented that evening and then asking, Isnt it great being a Christian? I remember my eyes welling up with tears. For the first time since early childhood, I thought it was great being a Christian, because if the history of the Bible was true, then my Lord and Savior was true also.

That night, everything changed. I was actually excited about Christianity. For the first time in my adult life, I felt like I could take Christianity seriously. I bought the Creation mini-series, and my youth pastor gave me a copy of Refuting Evolution. I studied vigorously and learned all of the evidence and arguments. Since then, I have shared the reason for my faith in nearly all the classes I had in undergrad. As a result, I saw many half-hearted Christians become fully confident in scriptures and many others came and inquired about The Faith. On top of all of these blessings, I am now in my third quarter at Concordia Seminary, studying to be a pastor!

A few years ago, I never would have dreamed that I would be a Christian, let alone have such confidence in my Lord, Jesus Christ. Thank you for your wonderful ministry. Without it, I might have been lost forever.

In the love of Christ,
