I was raised a Moslem. I had heard about Jesus, but no one had ever told me that I was a sinner with no way of earning God’s favor, based on my own effort. Dwayna told me that Jesus died for my sins, and I started to cry. I knew in my heart that it was true. She asked me if I wanted to become a Christian, and I told her that I did. I prayed and asked God to forgive me of my sins. Dwayna gave me a Bible and a devotional and marked certain verses to read. I am looking forward to getting to know the One true God by reading the Bible every day. I am now a Christian, trusting Jesus as my Savior.AngelaPersia
Dear Dwayna, The University of TN has an exciting campus with so many young people about to start their adult lives apart from their parents who, more importantly, will decide their spiritual life apart from their parents. The humanists, agnostics, and liberals seem to understand the opportunity to seize the hearts and minds of the naive and confused students. I believe there is no place that has a greater need for apologetics than the college campus. I thank God everyday for people [who] helped me endure the satanic assault I was ill prepared to deal with at the time [I was in college]. No one warned me of the battle that I was to face. Whether it was evolution, ‘German Biblical Criticism’, false religions, New Age, Eastern mysticism, cults, atheism, agnosticism, or the most dangerous ‘Liberal Christianity’, my biblical faith was attacked. It seems like only yesterday, but I saw many students fall from the faith during their college days. The tools you are providing will change people’s lives. I saw satanists become Christians, party animals become pastors, the un-churched become missionaries, and liberals turn into believers. You are doing a good work… God Bless you.Scat SpringsTennessee
