I’m a teenage girl living in a small village. After I received some literature… I started for the first time in my life to think about God.

I’m a teenage girl. I received some literature from someone who came to distribute Christian materials in my village. I started for the first time in my life to think about God.

I had many questions in my mind: Does God really exist? Did He die for my sins? Did He rise up from death after three days? Can God hear my prayers and see everything I do? Can God forgive my sins and give me freedom if I accept Him in my life? After I got the literature and read it many times I started to realize the truth. I said my first prayer and I felt that God did hear it. I was happy.

I accepted Jesus in my life and I do believe that He is my Savior. I want to know more about Him, how to serve Him and how to worship Him. I’m sure He deserves our worship because He is wonderful God.
