"My Personal Testimony," about 300 words
I have grown up in church all of my life, more specifically Mingo Baptist Church. I was raised in a Christian home. We went to church every Sunday, went every Sunday night, and every Wednesday night. For me, going to church was natural. If I ever missed a week, it was because I was sick. I was baptized when I was six years old. The entire congregation of Mingo Baptist Church supported me and helped mould me into who I am today. During my junior year of high school, my father had a heart attack and died. This was a huge shock to me. For the next couple of weeks, I kept all of my emotions to myself. Even now, it is still hard to talk about. Eventually my emotions bottled up for too long and I thought about suicide. I did not want to talk about it, but I did not know another way to release my pent up emotions. The one thing that allowed me to cope was working in the audio and video team at Mingo Baptist Church. The crew members there really helped me to forget about what had happened. They have been very supportive in many different ways. Because of their commitment to helping me cope with the loss of my father, I wanted to help out in any way I could. It made me feel very good to work every week in church, knowing that I was repaying those people who helped me out during one of the darkest parts of my life. I am still working on the audio and video team at church. Even though the work that the audio and video team and I do often goes unnoticed, I still enjoy serving God in my own way. My church is what made me who I am today.
