New Member Spotlight: Reyes Family

written by on the topic of New Member Spotlight on August, 2013

Salvation Testimony:
Josie: My children and I came to the United States three years ago, while my husband had come five years ahead of us. Raising four kids while adjusting to a new country was a struggle. I almost gave up and thought of going back home to the Philippines. I was feeling lost and empty, but trying to understand that everything happens for a purpose. One day, I met someone that I know God had destined my path to cross. This appointment that was planned by God made me realize that He was watching over us. It was on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2013, that my kids and I rode the bus to church and were saved. Salvation is life changing. Nothing feels better than knowing Jesus and living a new life with Him.

Joel: On May 5, 2013, about one month after my family was saved, I decided to join them and attend a church service. It was there that I received and accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior on that same day. There are still struggles in our life, but we wonder just how much more difficult life would be without Jesus.
