During my years before my salvation, I was involved with every sin prohibited by the law of God. I was a church person and grew up in a Christian home. The Word was read but I did not care much about it. I married very early in my life. I'm divorced from my first wife, one child was born from that marriage. My wife divorced me because I committed adultery. My second marriage (adulterous relationship), from which three children were born, also went on the rocks because of sins of both parties. I drank a lot, had loose moral standards and pursued financial success. I married (adulterous relationship) my third wife, my carnal desires once again prevailed. Although I quit with a lot of wrong things after this divorce, I was still more concerned about myself than about anyone else.
I greet you in the wonderful name of the Lord Jesus! As I write, I am 36 years old, a wife to the man I met and dated since I was 15 years of age and a joyful mother of 5 children; ages 13, 9, 7, 5 and 2. I want to share my testimony with you, how the Lord 'took me out of the miry clay and set my feet on the Rock to stay'.
I was born in 1971, the year my parents received salvation. I grew up in a Christian home and was aware that I was lost in sin. In 1978, the year I went to school, I had a dream. I could hear the trumpet blow. Our family were together and we took hands as we slowly rose up to meet Jesus in Heaven. To my shock I realized that I couldn’t rise with them. My mother asked, “but didn’t you accept Christ as your Saviour?” Then I woke up.
This is a testimony of how Jesus saves. He is still working, forming me into a vessel usable in His fields. Salvation is intended for each of us, for you! I want to encourage young people especially to "remember thy Creator in the days of thy youth."
I did not grow up in a christian home. My parents were both alcoholics. I do not remember where I first heard about Jesus, but I know I loved Him and wanted to serve Him.
Since I was 7, my friend's mother used to pick me up on Fridays and Sundays for church. There I learned songs and bibles verses which are still in my heart today. When my parents were fighting, I would lie in my bed praying and vowing I would never be like them. I hated alcohol.
Theophilus hamukoto is married to Adelheid Hamukoto have 7 children 5 with my wedded wife, I was born and grew up in the northern part of Namibia, I was baptized as a child and bible was one of the subjects during pre-primary education those years so as a child I believed:
Hi, I am Sanri Jansen van Vuuren and this is my testimony of God's salvation.
I will begin with my beginning. I was born on the 7th of July, 1997 and was brought up with the Word of God and family devotions.
When I was about 5 years old, my parents went to an AEB (Africa Evangelistic Band) camp near our farm. There I gave my heart to God by praying the sinners prayer, although I did not truly understand what it meant to accept Christ.
