My testimony is how I came to know Jesus personally and have a one-on-one relationship with Him. Before coming to Campion, I had never been in an environment where we daily talked about Jesus. Back home, I was used to going to church every Sunday, but I honestly felt like I was going to church because I had to and because my whole family went. Church was the only time I was required to pray by myself, and I didn’t enjoy it. The only thing I enjoyed when I went to church was seeing my friends there; other than that, it was just like any other day. Even though we sometimes prayed as a family during the week, I wasn’t able to make an effort to pray by myself. Once in a while, I would try to pray, but I felt like I was always discouraged.
When I heard about Campion and that it was a Christian school, I wasn’t as excited as I should have been to come here. My parents and I decided that I was going to come here with my brother. Coming here to Campion, I felt like there was something different about this school, and I felt myself called to be more involved in school. Soon, I found myself enjoying what Campion had to offer and the opportunities that we have to praise and worship Jesus, and that’s what I like most about Campion.
With the Bible classes and the worships we have everyday here, I felt like I needed to know more about Jesus and have a relationship with Him. Every day I was making an effort to pray and know Him more, and with that, I decided to make a decision to get baptized last school year during the Spark evangelistic series. I am glad to have friends in the dorm whose stories and testimonies encourage me to know more about Jesus. I am thankful that I came to Campion because I wouldn’t have known Him better like I do now if I hadn’t.
