His Testimony

I came under conviction when I was very young. I prayed to the Lord and thought that I had been saved. I did not seem convicted of my sins any more. Later, in the military service I was a paratrooper and I felt no fear when I jumped. I was involved in an automobile accident which broke my neck and ended my military service. I almost died, but I did not feel any fear of dying. I became an automobile mechanic and my hobby was racing cars. A car ran over me and I was hospitalized for almost a year. That accident also could have taken my life. Then, my wife Hattie was attending a revival at Independent. She returned home one night and told me she had been saved. Something came over me and I realized that I did not have what she had. The next day, I was afraid to crawl under a car. If it should fall on me and I died, I would go to hell. I went to church the next night, went to the altar and prayed for salvation. God gloriously saved my soul. I was filled with joy, peace, and love for everyone. I know I'm saved and I thank God for sparing my life until I was saved.

Edwin went home to be with the Lord on January 20, 2002.
