This is the story of a woman who did not find Jesus through traditions but found salvation through a personal encounter with the Lord. It was a family tradition to attend Catholic classes and get confirmed in the church. I was a very timid child and was afraid of the nun who taught the Cathecism class. I kept on having asthma attacks every Saturday night and my mom then told me that I didn't have to go to class anymore. As a teenager I was searching for truth. I read about psychology, astrology, and about meditation. It wasn't until I met my husband in college that I really heard about Jesus Christ. While dating my Christian friend (now my husband) he shared about Jesus with me. We continued to date even though we were unequally yoked. I considered myself an agnostic and wasn't interested in having a faith in God. I was deceived by Satan and didn't know it at the time. We got married after only 5 months of dating. It was only 3 months into our marriage that I came to faith in Jesus Christ. I couldn't sleep one night in July 1982. The Holy Spirit was revealing to me that there was a wall between God and I. I realized that I was rebellious towards God. I felt so convicted and then I asked God to forgive me of my sin. I asked Jesus to come into my life. There was a peace after praying. The next day I told my husband and he was so happy. He prayed for God to bless our marriage. That was how God blessed our marriage. I developed a love for God's Word. I couldn't get enough of it. The first assignment from God was for me to forgive everyone who had hurt me in my past. I then surrendered all to Him. God healed me of many disappointments and hurts. He healed me of fear of people, driving, and trying new things. He gave me a heart to reach out to young and old people who need encouragement. He changed my heart. He took my heart of stone and gave me a heart of flesh. Linda Ewa Beach, Hawaii
