“Having grown up in a Christian home, I was aware of my need of salvation from a young age; however, the message of salvation became real to me during a week of summer camp when I was eight years old, and it was then that I called on the Lord as my personal Savior. I am thankful for a godly, Christian heritage where developing a personal relationship with Christ was, and still is, an important part of my life.”
