I would like to share with you this victory of salvation in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ that we have had here at Alpha & mega BBs. It is this eternal testimony by our recently departed brother in the LORD, Michael Egbers with whom we fellowshiped often.

Since my injury 3 weeks ago, I have been reading my Bible more. It has made a difference. I have a lot of time on my hands now and it gets lonely once in a while. This lay up has given me some time to examine my life and I have decided to make some changes because of reading the Bible. I have made a commitment to God to go to Church at least every other Sunday, but will more than likely be every week the way I feel now. A dear friend of mine was over yesterday to visit. About 6 to 8 months ago he re-discovered Jesus. He came over yesterday and we spent several hours reading passages in the Bible and it really inspired me. Now I can't wait to get back in church. About 20 years ago I started getting heavy into church (I'm 35 now). I was an Altar Boy at Saint Peter's Lutheran Church on Michigan Ave in N.E. Wash. I stayed with it until 1982. Then, due to the fact I did't have a car and couldn't afford one, I couldn't go because my mother and sister stopped going. Over the years, I slid back on everything because I lost the Inspiration from the church. Then Last Easter I managed to get a ride to All Saint's Lutheran in Bowie. That set the idea in motion. Then I finally got a car in November but didn't get back because I had lost inspiration again. But, due to this accident I had on the 22nd of last month, it's given me time to reflect and now I really want to commit my life to God and Jesus. And I can't wait to get back into church and rediscover the joys of the Lord for myself. I ask that everybody pray for my speedy recovery so I can return to the church I love so well and to my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and his Glorious Father, God in Heaven. --- CMPQwk #1.4 UNREGISTERED EVALUATION COPY ---------------------------------------- From Michael Stevenson And we did pray for our brother. May Almighty GOD rest his precious soul in the eternal peace, joy and love that is the kingdom of GOD. ----------------------------------------- From : MICHAEL STEVENSON To : MICHAEL EGBERS Subj : Praise Numb : 637 of 637 Date : 02/13/96 10:38 Read : 02/13/96 11:49 Reference : 636 Conf : 6 - [A&] Test/Praise/Prayer Private : NO -> given me time to reflect and now I really want to -> comm life to God and Jesus.

Heavenly Father, in Jesus' holy name, and by your grace and mercy pour out thy virture on Brother Michael, strengthening him in body and Spirit for your glory. And may he be a light to the world to the salvation of souls, amen. Brother Michael, the original post above was based on Psalm 22:3 "But thou are holy, Oh thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel." The Spirit of the LORD is in the place that praises are offered to His name. Thank you for your testimony, brother, In the Saviour's love and joy, Michael michael_stevenson@aq.blkcat.com Alpha&Omega BBS "It won't be rain, it'll be fire next time." eat talking with you!
