Testimony 15: First Steps toward Growth

Chapter 15

My brother Mike was also going through his spiritual renewal as a high school student and he decided to make the move to Ft. Campbell with me. We wanted to get off on the right foot so we decided to do two things: read the Bible together and go to chapel. We wrote down all the books of the Bible on little pieces of paper and put them in a cup and drew to see which books we would read first (not a recommended technique). As far as chapel went, an odd thing happened on our first Sunday morning while searching for a chapel to attend. It was 10:30 and all the Protestant services started at 10:00 or 11:00 except one. This one chapel started at the curious time of 10:45. Taking our cue, we decided to attend and we found a divine appointment waiting for us there. A man named Randy Beaudin approached us after the service and asked us if we wanted to participate in a Bible study on Thursday nights. He was pretty shocked at our enthusiastic response. (I would discover later that you can ask a hundred men to Bible study and one may be serious enough to take you up on your offer.) This was the beginning of a concerted effort to grow in Christ and it would be a foundation for the years to come.
