It was June 2011 when I posted this on my blog. Reading back, I could still feel the intense emotion and gratitude that I felt from this event. A.V.P.I is not just an ordinary Bible School for me. It was the event that was used by God to wake me up from the reality of my spiritual life. I have been saved long before this but the growth in my Christian life had been so slow and almost stagnant.
For me, it’s a wake-up call. I venture to so many things but the one matters most was almost completely taken for granted. Thankfully, my God is still merciful and He has never forgotten me.
Worshipping God, fellowships, preaching, and blessings those are the memories I wouldn’t forget.
It was May, 2011, I was 12 years old, and a ministry was born, an instrument that would later be used by God, a ministry founded by Godly men guided by the Holy Spirit named AV 1611 Primer Institute.
As we all know, cars are designed for land transportation. But, if a car had a mind of its own and it decided to shift from travelling on land to flying or sailing, we all know that disaster would follow. The wheels of a car are made to roll on land, but when it deviates from the very object that it was designed for, namely the ground, and begins driving off a cliff or jumping in water, it will only hurt itself and others.
“I could stand here and tell you what I used to be
I could tell of the change that’s come over me
for the Lord shed His Grace when He died on the tree
So I’ll let the blood Jesus shed speak for me
And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. Romans 14:23
This very Word of the Lord spoke to me one night in a preacher’s message during one evening worship service. I was a working mom and I have been hearing a lot of preaching on being a “keeper at home” and for what purpose why it exists in the Bible.
