Saved whan I was 12 - Turned my back on GOD - fought for 3 years in Vietnam in the Marines, committed and witnessed horrible atrocities, spent most of my life feeling unworthy of GOD"S forgiveness, have finally accepted God's forgiveness and now stuggle daily with SIN in my life and try to hand over my life to GOD to do his will
Other stuff about me:

hello stephen, here's a joke to welcome you here at AAG-
WHAT'S A CHURCH?
A well-worn one-dollar bill and a similarly distressed twenty-dollar bill arrived at a Federal Reserve Bank to be retired. As they moved along the conveyor belt to be burned, they struck up a conversation. The twenty-dollar bill reminisced about its travels all over the country.
"I've had a pretty good life," the twenty-dollar bill proclaimed. "Why I've been to Las Vegas and Atlantic City , the finest restaurants in New York , performances on Broadway, and even a cruise to the Caribbean "
"Wow!" said the one-dollar bill. "You've really had an exciting life!"
"So tell me," says the twenty-dollar bill, "where have you been throughout your lifetime?"
The one dollar bill replies, "Oh, I've been to the Methodist Church , the Baptist Church, the Lutheran Church."
The twenty-dollar bill interrupts, "What's a church?"
