First Time Visitor Notes

My Story (World) is for believers outside the United States to tell about themselves, what life is like, and how they came to Jesus Christ. You are free to tell us about what you do (grow and sell vegetables or wheat, help people do their tax returns, be a stay-at-home Mom, train horses, answer the customer service lines for a company, write books, teach school, run a restaurant, whatever). Tell us about your life. It can be very interesting to others. Tell us about your life before Christ, how you came to put your faith in Christ, and how it has been since then. If you want to, provide an email address for people to contact you. If not, fine.

If you are a young person, I need to know your parents know about this and think it's OK.

Someone out there looking across cyberspace to your page may decide they are just like you and if you can commit your life to Christ, they can too! You can tell others about this site so they can look at it. While I doubt you will be contacted via email, it could be visitors from elsewhere might plan a vacation to the town where you live based on what your write. In this sense, calling attention to where you live can help your local economy to prosper.

The site is simple in form. You pick a country or location (a town or place or a mountain range) that most describes you or that you feel free to talk about. It doesn't have to be where you live now. You pick a date closest to when you committed your life to Jesus Christ. I don't care if your page is long or short. You can include photos and sound files as long as they are clean (no foul language and you are fully clothed). If it seems you are advertizing your business, that's fine. We all have to eat. Your testimony needs to be specifically Christian. This means you take seriously that Jesus died for you and you asked him to forgive you and take control of your life forever. What's going on inside of you is the most important thing regardless of your circumstances in life. I reserve the right to ask you questions and moderately edit what you write and maybe not even publish it.

I do this for fun and to show Jesus Christ is real to onlookers. It's a hobby and an avocation.

I really do hope you will share your story! If you live in a place that is dangerous for Christians please pray about it. I want you to be safe. If you see changes made by me it is to keep you safe also!
