I couldn't help but fall in love with God
When I was a teenager I had know idea that who God is should affect my life. I grew up in a family that went to church on Sunday but we didn’t practice much outside of church.
Like a lot of young people I was grasping at things to fill these desires to find this purpose and to fit in. So I started doing things like going to parties, drinking, and cursing, and having sex. With the world’s mindset I thought that was it.
When I went through Lifeteen at St Dominic I experienced otherwise. At a weekend conference I felt the Holy Spirit burning in my soul for the first time and thought “This is so much better!”
I couldn’t help but fall in love with God. And once I was in love with Him I couldn’t help but act on that love. My response to this love what to become a missionary.
