From: Iowa

How you came to know Christ: Two weeks after I graduated from high school, I flew to Colorado to be a bridesmaid in a wedding.  The bride, groom and others in the wedding party were Christians.  I saw something different in their lives. I heard the gospel at the wedding and the next morning in the church service.  That morning I trusted Christ to be my Savior.  I realized salvation was not by good works.  Jesus Christ had paid it all!

Favorite verse: “Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you.  And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you.  For the Lord is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who wait for Him.” ~Isa. 30:18

How you came to the BI: I had the joy of working at Back to the Bible Broadcast in Lincoln, Nebraska after becoming a Christian.  God used this ministry to teach me so many truths about Himself and living life.  One morning we had chapel with Jack Wyrtzen being our speaker.  He talked about the ministry of Word of Life and the one-year Bible Institute in Pottersville, NY.  I began to pray about this opportunity.  A few weeks I applied and was accepted to attend.  (1973-74)
