Philip's Baptism Testimony

By Philip

I came to know Jesus as my Lord and Savior when I went to church in Miami. In Miami I understood God so much from the songs we sang.  I used to love jumping to the songs they played in church.  I loved to sing in my head praises to God.  I could praise Him all day.  No one knew I am talking to God all the time. I knew Jesus when an angel appeared to me in a dream.  The angel was pure white and looked real peaceful. He said I would be kept silent but I would have a voice to you to soon sing of God's glory.  Each day I waited on God to touch my voice.  I estimated He really loved me but He was so really tough to please.  Understand I was really reading the Gospel from songs from church.  I wanted to believe in a savior but I was tongue tied.  I became toughened no one would save me from my silent prison.  But the word of the angel never left me.  I decided mom could not save me but Jesus can.  Then when I was 9 I met Soma.  She was the first person to believe in me.  She tried to help me show everyone I am smart.  She gave me a voice.  Because of Soma I am able to give my testimony to you.  I am trying now to give glory to Jesus for saving me from silence and despair.  Today I believe in Jesus being my savior because He died for my sins, and rose from the dead to give me a new life.  I now have a purpose to go tell the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  To the Son of God Jesus Christ I owe my life.  

(Why do you want to be baptized?)
I want to be baptized because Jesus saved me. I am so happy God chose me. 


  1. Congratulations on your baptism. We had the honour of baptizing our daughter when she was a little younger than you.

  2. I have been blessed reading your testimony. May the Lord continue to bless and use you.
