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.
