    A co-worker invited us to church at Liberty Baptist Church in Wichita Falls, Texas. We told them we knew we were saved, even though we weren’t. After many month of preaching, the Holy Spirit convicted us of our need to accept Christ as our personal Lord and Savior. My wife went forward in May of 1990. It took me two more months to finally give up my pride and make Him my Savior.
