I am a husband, and father of four boys, that was born and raised in an Apostolic Pentecostal home. My dad was an Apostolic preacher, pastor, and evangelist; and my mother was, and still is, a loving, caring, praying woman that could make the devil walk the line. Needless to say, I am no stranger to the Apostolic way of life. I remained in church until my early 20's, when I allowed events and circumstances to steal my walk with God. I was in a backsliden condition for 12 years. During that 12 year period, I made a couple of feeble attempts to get back to God. It wasn't until my father passed in Febuary, 2020 that I decided somthing had to change. No sooner had my dad passed, that the "COVID19" pandemic broke out. I don't know about any other backslider, but just because I had backslid didn't mean that I had lost all my convictions. When COVID broke out, all the churches begin to close their doors. This didn't sit right with me. It was a time in my life when I needed a church the most, and all of them were closing their doors. All of them except one. Pastor Tony Spell, of Life Tabernacle Church, refused to close the doors of his church. He refused to bow to the Godless government. He chose to obey God rather than man. Because of his courage and boldness, I’m in church today. I made the decision to move my family from my hometown of 34 years, to Baton Rouge, Louisiana in May of 2020. It’s the best decision I have ever made. I have learned so much since moving here. There is no other place in the world that I would rather be. Moving here has helped me to realize the truth of one of my favorite scriptures, Psalm 91. I’ve had to face some things since moving here, but I know as long as I “dwell in the secret place of the Most High”, I can see what the end of a Christian’s experience is.
