Lana G. Richardson
Born Again: First Week in July 1981
When I was growing up, I enjoyed going to church with my family on Sunday. Revival took place during July each year and we always attended. This began to trouble me in my teenage years as I started feeling convicted of my sins. The sermons began to explain how wonderful afterlife could become, but not only that, they spoke to my soul. I knew I was in need of the Lord as my heart quickly became lonely. Although I was willing to approach the altar to ask for forgiveness, the devil would always pull me back. The ride home from church after service passed quickly as I felt confused, afraid, sad, and depressed. At home I could still feel the Lord calling to my heart to confess my sins. I can remember laying in bed praying for forgiveness and asking the Lord to save my soul. Then one night during the month of July in 1981, I felt the burden of worries lifted from my soul. I knew then I was saved. I joined the church on the second of August in the year of 1981.

morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness
shall go before thee:
the glory of the Lord shall be thy rearward. Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer--" Isaiah 58:8-9-
