Malcolm Malcolm KGF

I grew up in a non-Christian home of conflict, but loved my Mom & Dad.  Later I was convinced that both my Mom and Dad had accepted the Lord - my Mom in Sunday School when she was little and Dad in his latter years whilst he was living with our family in Vancouver.  When I was young, my Mom would take me down the hill to a local Baptist Church each Sunday.  As the years went by, I attended the Baptist Church faithfully and became the leader of the Young People's Church. I was baptized at age 16 or 17.

 

Several years later, in 1967, I asked Judy (now my dear wife of 42 years) to marry me.  She refused, saying that she could not marry a non-Christian!  This prompted a serious re-evaluation of my life and a true commitment to the Lord.  We were then married in August 1968.

Looking back, I think I was sincere when I was baptized as a teenager, but I know I did not understand the concept of dying to the old life and rising to a new life subject to Christ's Lordship and Presence in me.  Because of this uncertainty, I was re-baptized in 1995, knowing then, that what I was doing in public genuinely  expressed my commitment to the Lord.

In the past I have always driven myself to solve problems and to attain high levels, but now I spend much more time listening to the Lord and working “'not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit', says the Lord Almighty.” Zech. 4:6

 

Since marrying Judy, I have grown in the Lord and spent much time in studying the Word, in prayer, and in ministering in “Listening Prayer” and Counselling.  I love the Lord and His Word, and use His Word often as I pray for others.

 

My favourite Bible verses have become Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
