If you could teach everyone in the world one thing, what would it be?
I was born December 25th 1979; a child of Maria and Gene Helton. I was born again December 21st 2001; a child of God. Before giving my life to the LORD I didn’t care about attending college nor had I any aspirations for higher education. I was busy focusing my time on playing video games and hanging out with my friends and girlfriend. After bouncing from job to job for a while I eventually hit a wall. I quit a great job, my parents were tired of helping me out, my girlfriend and I were on the outs, and the friends I lived with were getting tired of the potato on their couch.December 21st 2001, I decided it was in the best interests of all concerned parties that I kill myself.A man who lived downstairs from me was visiting that evening. I was ignoring everyone and playing video games when he came over and invited me to church. That night I didn’t succeed in my plans, but I did die. I am a new creation in Christ Jesus and ON FIRE to see His gospel preached to all nations.My one goal in life is to glorify the LORD Jesus with all that I am and all that I have. For this reason I want to teach everyone in the world the hope and salvation that comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ. My life was forever changed when I was confronted by the loving truth of Jesus, and His sacrifice on the cross is why I am yet alive today. It is my hope that by pursuing my education I can be of greater use in His kingdom. It is through this education that I will more effectively teach others of this truth.
