Lawrence

I was born into a Catholic family where I almost became a Reverend father before I had an encounter with Jesus a decade ago. I was a committed zealous religious man. I used to believe my good works will save me, but yet I was living in sin. On a glorious day heard the Gospel of salvation by grace alone through faith alone and in Christ Jesus alone. I recognized myelf as a sinner, confessed and repented of my sin, and invited Jesus into my heart. Jesus saved my soul and delivered me from the power of sin. He ordered my step to this church – GOFAMINT By the grace of God, I am able to live the new life in Christ Jesus, worship joyfully, serve faithfully, growing in grace, and enjoying the fellowship of fellow beliers at House of Mercy, DC. If you are looking for a Christ centered, Bible believing church, where you can grow in faith and use your gift to bless others, House of Mercy is for you.

This testimony is to confirm God’s omniscient nature (all knowing) and when we obey his instruction and wisdom; we gain victory over problems.
In 2012, I sought the face of God concerning my stagnant situation. Since my return to the United States(US) in Year 2003, I couldn’t get a decent job, was still living from hand to mouth, overwhelmed with debts and bills and I wasn’t a blessing to my immediate family, my extended family back in Nigeria or the Church of God. Although I had a graduate degree in my discipline from my first visit to the US in 1985; I was unable to get a job despite several job searches and applications for over nine years. It was in this desperate situation that I cried to God in fasting and prayers. God spoke to me to go back to school; I didn’t like God’s response. I already had a Master’s degree in 1985(27 year-old degree by Year 2012); Why couldn’t God help me to get a job? I didn’t have funds to go back to School. I kept getting the same affirmation in my Spirit for over 2 months anytime I asked God about the matter,
Eventually, I researched and applied to different graduate schools and got admitted into one that paid part of my graduate tuition. I graduated from the school in 2014; and I was able to get a supernatural job and positioning by God after 14 months of graduation. God is a God of knowledge; when we obey his instruction in any area of problem, we gain wisdom to be successful in that area. PRAISE god

Few months ago, I was terribly sick with backache transported on emergency to the hospital, but when my Pastor and his wife came, they prayed for me and the Lord healed me and delivered me from that terrible backache. Praise the Lord!
