I first came to The Light & Life Full Gospel Fellowship (LLFGF)Landor Road in February 2012 as my wife was already attending the church. My first Sunday road reminded me of church back home in Jamaica.
Growing up in Pusey St Catherine as a child my siblings and I went to Sunday school and church as my mother was a Christian but my father was not and even though my father did not go to church he always made sure that we did! No arguing.
Life back home in Jamaica for me was not easy one night going home from work and taking a taxi as I would usually do I was held up at gunpoint I thought that I was going to die it was only by the grace of God let me survive. I knew that God was with me that night.
My life took another twist I was diagnosed with a brain tumour in December 2015, but to God be the glory I had my operation in 2016 and the tumour was successfully removed. I still have to have regular check-ups, so there was only one thing left for me to do and that was to surrender my life to god because without God being on my side I don’t know where I would be?
I finally decided to get baptised at LLFGF on the 7th August 2016 this was an awesome day my wife and I together got saved. I will never forgot that my God has brought me a mighty long way and it was time to serve him.
I am an active member at LLFGF, most if not all by now know me as the “cook” of the church but I’m also a father to 3 beautiful children and have 7 other siblings in Jamaica I try to speak to them as often as I can and encourage them to give their life to God and tell them how God is working in my life. I’m also part of the ushering team, cook to the Foodbank on a Monday and I have recently taken up the role as Assistant leader to Gideon’s Army. I am committed to serve God the very best I can.
One of my favourite Chapters is Psalm 23 verse 4
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
Reminding me that I have nothing to fear as God is always with me.
Love and blessings to all.
