Justin’s Mask-erade

A brief biography of Justin Lippiatt © 2010

I wasn’t a bad kid. I was shy, and I suppose one could say…cautious. I was part of the ‘in’ group during Primary School, but things changed when I went to boarding school. Suddenly I was in High School, alone and vulnerable and 1000 kilometres from home.

I didn’t want to die and I didn’t want to live

Why did Harold Rice care so much about people? Something was wrong. I was seventeen. I had enjoyed a wonderful upbringing in a loving family, attended church, worked a part-time job, made decent grades in school, planned to attend college, played lead guitar in a successful rock band, and was very unhappy. Despite the shiny future ahead of me, I felt a deep sense of hopelessness within me. If life held any meaning for me or anyone, I wasn’t sure what it was. I didn’t want to die and I didn’t want to live. What was I to do? I began to pray.

Looking for security and fulfillment in tomorrows

My family never had a college graduate. I would give anything to graduate from college. I then thought that if I graduated from law school, they could never take it away from me. Then I thought that if I passed the bar exam, that would be a genuine milestone.

The morning that God became real

By: Norm Rasmussen

What a joy it is to know beyond all shadow of a doubt that there really is a God. Not just to believe there is a God and leave it at that, but to have personally experienced His presence in my room. That was the morning my doubts about God and Jesus Christ changed forever!

A born again experience


This is an actual letter written to a close friend of mine (Andy), whom I had worked with for two years in Darwin. I originally wrote this letter to explain the awesome life changing experience that I had. I think that this information is more important than how much money you have in the bank, how successful you are in life or how many friends you have. If I call this person a friend (Andy) and not tell him about this encounter, then I don't think I can call myself a friend to this friend.

Gang leader transformed

Rev. Keith Ivester
State Director
Youth and Christian Education
Columbia, Maryland

In 1989, I was serving as State Director of Youth and Christian Education for the Church of God in California. Each summer, we held camps for our youth and I foolishly said, "We'll take anyone. Bring them on." Reverend Dennis Adams from San Francisco took me at my word. Little did I know the people he would find as he travelled the streets of San Francisco asking teens if they would like to spend a week at camp.

This was worse than life imprisonment

Neivelle's brush with the law began when he was just fourteen. He became involved with gangland activities after his release from prison at the age of sixteen. By the time he was seventeen he had become one of the top gang leaders in Singapore. At seventeen and half he was involved in a major gang war which resulted in the death of an opposing gang member. He was sentenced to hang for his involvement in the gang murder.

Silent tears that were touched by God

by: A. Bowen

I am writing this testimony as a way of expressing thanks to Jesus and all of you who prayed for me all over the country and in places like Australia! Praise God for His mercy, Love and other Christians! Also, I pray that my testimony will touch another's life so that they may RECOGNISE, KNOW and FEEL the Love of the Lord Jesus Christ not for my glory, but for HIS!
