Amy 's short time in Japan prepared her for her ministry in India. Every difficulty she faced was used of God to make her a better missionary. It is easy to see that it was all part of God 's perfect timing and plan. A simple prayer request as a child, both difficulties and success in her middle age and overcoming a terrible fall to still serve the Lord as an older lady, Amy Carmichael accomplished so much.

When I was in the third grade, my parents sat my brother and I down and announced that they were getting a divorce. Most children would have been shocked or devastated by the news, but I wasn 't; I was actually excited. Sadly, I was unaware of the trials and tribulations a divorce entails, especially one that last 8 years.
St. Joan of Arc is a great role-model. I chose to be confirmed with her because she doesn’t give up. In addition, St. Joan of Arc never stopped believing in God. Throughout her whole life she listened to God and listen to what he told her to do. Even when she was about to die, she held a crucifix before her to represent Jesus.
My great-grandmother used to say, “Live your life in such a way that when you die, even the Postman will miss you.” I never thoroughly understood those words until Jimmy Fesmire, a prominent figure and deacon in my church, passed away in a car accident after attending a Sunday morning service on a clear, sunny day in May last year. His passing was untimely and truly unfair, but even after death, he continued to impact lives. The number of people he had helped with a servant’s heart and cheerful mind was innumerable. Jimmy Fesmire is the only individual I know whose life mirrored my great-grandmother’s quote.
It was early 1995 when I first turned my life over to God, at this point in my life I had lost hope of moving forward in life. Got a call that my best friend had been killed due to a gun shot to the head I just felt like I had lost my entire world I decided I wanted to live right and that the party life was not right for me. On Sunday I attended church and walked up to the pew and dedicated my life to God.
I had been homeschooled my entire school career, but after a lot of failing tests and crying, my mom decided it would be best if I tried public school. I was not into the idea at all. I thought that those public school kids would destroy me, they knew so much more than I did, (Not true) and had so much more social experience (Also not true). I had been going to church activities for my entire life, and my parents made it a point to sign me up for weekend painting camps, and classes at the rec center. Yet it was nothing compared to the 6+ hours these kids have been at school every day.
The Civil war was a very devastating event in history that was a test on the families who had loved ones both in the war and living far away from the rest of their family. People on the home front wanted to help but felt like there was not anything they could do. Also, the addition of the draft into the war it caused more of a burden and fear of losing their loved ones. However, with the devastation of the war people seemed to do the only thing they knew how to do and that was to go to church.
St. Paul of Tarsus has made a huge impact on the Church by showing everyone how a single sinner can be changed by God for the better. Before his conversion, Paul was known as Saul, a tentmaker, Roman citizen, and a persecutor of Christians. Saul traveled to Cyprus and Asia Minor to preach to other Jewish brothers, and he later made three separate journeys to churches all around the Mediterranean Sea. During his journey to Damascus, Saul fell off his horse in a flash of light, and God called out to him, “Why are you persecuting me?” Saul was suddenly blinded, and a man called Ananias cured him and later baptized him.
A year and a half ago, God brought me kicking and screaming to Ocala from my 47-year home in Orlando. The second Sunday I was here, I came to Church @The Springs. The first person I met when I walked in the front door was Jacob Sylvia. I told him I was new and that I missed Orlando and I missed working at church each week.
