“Am glad I can boldly say I belong to Jesus Christ because I really fear and try my best to obey all I see in His word with the Help of my Sweet Holy Spirit. Before now I was just that young girl that wanted everything some girls thought are the priorities in life.
“So back then I dated married men whom will end up loving me so much and doing all I asked,thereby spending less time with their wives. Back then it felt good to be loved and taken care by someone’s husband and it seemed normal.
“But as God may have it I became born again. Attended WOLBI (WORD OF LIFE BIBLE SCHOOL) in Salvation Ministries.
“I encountered light and stopped everything that has to do with married men and all they had to offer despite the pressure. I became content with what I have and trust me God didn’t lie when He said that He will provide everything I needed if I seek Him first.
“Letting go of that completely doesn’t make me a perfect girl because no one is perfect but it felt good to go into a covenant with God,and watch Him fulfil His own part.

“The transformation didn’t end there cause I still had other things I was doing that doesn’t glorify God.I use to smoke and masturbate a lot and that made me have less friends and because I didn’t want the dirty habits known publicly.
“Though After WOLBI I stopped smoking and mastubating for a while, after some time, I backslided and became worst with the habits. I smoke all the time coupled with the challenges i was going through then.
“In the midst of this I still loved God, kept praying and asking for mercy especially after each action. Am grateful to God because I know He has healed me completely and this is the proof that am free from that demonic influence because it was a big battle for me to testify openly.”
