“I was brought in by the truth”

Being close to God was never on Anthony’s radar. In fact, it was the last thing he wanted out of life…

“I was an atheist and I was very far away from God. My sister got into church and she started seeking out a relationship with Jesus. There wasn’t anything I wouldn’t do for her, and she wanted to go to church. So she asked me if I would go with her, and I said, ‘Of course.’”

Little did Anthony know his sister had recently begun listening to Family Life Radio where she heard about the 30-day Challenge to pray, read her Bible and tune in regularly.

She told her brother, “Why don’t you try listening to this stuff… and just see what happens?”

So Anthony started listening—and God started working in his life. In the months that followed, the Word of God began to change him. He found encouragement and his heart was softened to the gospel as it never had been before.

Anthony got connected with a local church—and placed his faith in Jesus Christ!

But his story doesn’t end there. He goes on…

“I wanted to give my life to Him… so we started trying to find a way how to serve in ministry. And within a few short years after that, we opened up our church, New Beginnings Crestview in Albuquerque… and we’ve been praising and serving God ever since.”

He adds…

“I would say that skepticism can be your ally because He is the way and the truth and the life, and the key word there is the truth. I was a skeptic, and I wasn’t brought in by all the spiritual stuff. I was brought in by the truth that He laid out.”

Your generous support makes it possible to encourage people like Anthony each and every day—so they can have a life-transforming encounter with God’s truth.

Thank you for your partnership!
