So, my wife feels I should blog about my past and experiences.She feels it could be beneficial to some of you and I hope it is. My name is Michael and I am a 25 year old husband, father and missionary to Jewish people. No, I'm not Jewish which makes my job seem a little odd to some. Before becoming a missionary I was a staff sergeant in The USAF. I've served multiple tours in the Middle East and Africa. Now that we've painted a small portrait of me let's get to the purpose of this Entry. As you read I hope to encourage you all to never give up on God. When I was 7 my mother divorced my step-father and left me with him. Why? I honestly have no idea. In short, my step-father was angry and abusive. Nonetheless, my mom committed adultery, ran off with her lover and abandoned me with him. I, being a split image of my mother, bore the brunt of my step-fathers anger and pain caused by the divorce. I can honestly say it was during this period of my life where my Christianity was born. I've always had a knowledge of God as far back as I can remember. I recall my step dad playing this oh-so-fun "game" of locking me in a room and removing the light bulb. During this time of my life I was deathly afraid of the dark, this is where my prayer life began. In the darkness of the room I prayed to God asking him to stay with me in the darkness. I had one of those Precious Moments bibles that I would read by moonlight. In that moment I discovered proverbs 3:5-6, to this day it's still my favorite verse. What I'm trying to convey is that God is in the darkest of places, sitting with you. My faith grew through suffering. It kind of got to the point where I looked forward to the locked door. It was my escape from my broken home and my quiet time with The Lord Jesus.
