When did you first encounter God and how did you encounter Him? My first encounter with God was July 22,2002 at Falls Creek church camp. I had a tumor in my back, and the pastor had me lay my hand on the tumor as he laid his hand on mine and prayed, and it disappeared in Jesus’ name. Then, I was filled with the Joy of the Lord and baptized [with] the Holy Ghost.

What has been the darkest time in your life, and how did you see God in it? The darkest time in my life was when I was suicidal. I put my phone in the living room away from me went to my room shut the door and locked it and actually held a gun to my head, on my bed tears flowing down my face. Somehow, my husband’s best friend called and my daughter got in my room. I immediately put the gun down, and the gun disappeared. I knew for a fact in that moment God sent an angel to unlock the door and then to take the gun because God had a plan for my life!
