“... a teammate of mine was shot and killed at a bar…” *
---------------------------------------------"I grew up loving and knowing God, because that's all I knew to do. As I got older, I started to form a curiosity of certain things the world had to offer. I really thought I was missing out on all of the fun, and I had very few friends who enjoyed going to church like me. *
By the time I got to college I had a football scholarship playing at Marshall University. I was still actively going to church, but I was also actively seeking pleasures of this world. It took me going out to bars, drinking, and hanging out with the wrong people to realize that I didn't fit in at all. You see, God has called me to be a mighty warrior for the kingdom since birth and I was reminded of that very quickly. One evening, a teammate of mine was shot and killed at a bar and I haven't been back to one since. *
That was my wake up call. God told me that I might be in this world, but I am definitely not of it! He also told me that He put me on that football team to spread the message of His love and forgiveness. * So, I stand before you today with 8 1/2 years of military service, 3 college degrees, a family, and now 5 Christian rap albums. This is why my favorite scripture is: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Phil
