Meet Melinda

How did you come into a relationship with Christ?

When I was 19, my boss at the time shared with me about the live saving gift of Jesus. He gave me my first Bible with a note on what to read. I literally walked away from my previous life and became fully immersed in my new life in Christ. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come, The old has gone, the new is here!” 2 Corinthians 5:17

What do you do at FOF?

Favorite bible verse(s)?

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
