How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    I was in my third year of college when an accident took the life of my best friend since high school. This is the time I started to ask questions about the meaning of life and why things happen? First , let me give you a little background info. I left home at 16 years old and lived on my own. While in hight school I became best friends with a guy and later he and his family asked if I would like to move in with them which i did. They had a bowling alley in which I helped out since I felt it the only RIGHT thing to do since they took me in. My friend and I went on to college, joined a fraternity and in our Junior year of college he had a head on accident in his vehicle. An older man with two young boys had pulled out in his lane in front of him. Well, I needed to get some Answers since he was like my brother. I didn't feel he was good enough to go to heaven but he was not also bad enough to burn forever. So now my search! My sister in a different town had been studying with Jehovah's Witnesses and she began showing me scriptures, etc. (She was not baptized nor going to meetings regularly as of yet) I remember praying, "Jehovah, God or whoever you are , if it means wearing a beany cap, I will wear one" I just wanted to KNOW for a certainty that I would see my best friend again. Well, to make a long story short, I found the answers to my questions and MUCH MORE. I came to know the TRUE GOD, Jehovah. WHAT A PRIVILEGE. When I researched and checked on my own for several months before knowing what a Bible study was or even going to the Kingdom Hall for the first time. I tried to prove it wrong but at the same time it was all there in front of me in black and white in the scriptures. To logical to just pass off as another religion. I have been privilgeged to be used by Jehovah to help several families into the truth and a couple of special ones in my life as well. If you would like. I could share these experiences. Jeho

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    I am a simple person who loves to study the Bible with others. My wife and I spend time together since our two boys are grown and gone. I have one son who he and his wife are doing quite well in the TRUTH. He is the Theocratic Ministry School Overseer in his congregation and my oldest son was a servant but a couple of years ago he chose a different course and disassociated himself. Haven't seen or talked to him in years. My heart aches but Jehovah knows and gives my wife and I strength.

    This reminds me of the young men on the plain of Dura. The proposition or persecution! In this old system of things it will all be downhill from here.

  12. The Severity if the Ban in Russia is Permitted

    Very sobering and troubling!!!! May Jehovah strengthen them. May they be determined , courageous and faithful in these difficult times. Keep praying fervently for these dear ones ! It keeps going through my mind ......if I were in that situation how would I respond. Hopefully as faithful as these brothers and sisters are and just as those ones during the Nazi Regime.
