changed our lives. For the past two decades that


we have been married, we rarely attended
church. We had our ups and downs but now we
can truly say that we are now substantially more
fulfilled through worshipping God regularly.
Every week, we learn something new, get
recharged, and are better prepared for the
challenges ahead.

When God called us to Charleston in 2015, we were


1000 miles from family and friends, our housing had
fallen through, and our income was much less than
we had hoped for. Joining an AGroup was the best
decision we made. We formed deep and meaningful
relationships with individuals who supported us
through our difficult times and provided us with
biblical truths to encourage us on our journey. I truly
believe that God has used the people at Awaken and
in our AGroup to draw us closer to Him and transform our lives for the better this past year.

Since first coming to Awaken a little over a year


ago, my life has drastically changed in every way
possible. A huge part of my transformation has
stemmed from giving generously of my time,
talent, and treasure. The first time I walked into
church I was a very lost person, but I am so
thankful that God placed Awaken in my path to
show me what it truly means to be a follower of
Christ. I dont think I could have grown in my
relationship with Jesus as I have without being
given the opportunity to serve him at Awaken.

the best things that has ever happened to me.

Awaken makes it a priority to "GO" reach not only


those far away but those right beside us. We are
constantly reminded that we are disciples of
Christ and our mission field is everywhere around
us. It's not fair to keep such an amazing, loving,
unfathomable God to ourselves. We must share
the Gospel. God deserves that.
