It took a campus student speaking with a loud voice for her to come join the Bible talk and that was the start of God’s transformation in her life. From there she attended the Spring Ridgecrest retreat and started studying the Bible soon after. Now she has made the decision to make Jesus lord and be baptized into God’s kingdom.
Tori Jackson (second from right) was baptized on April 26. She is a freshman at Kennesaw State University and is such a joy to be around! She first was connected at a ‘Shazam’ Bible Talk event in August. Unfortunately, her dad passed away suddenly in September which left her angry at God but also looking for peace and answers. In January, she was reconnected with some campus sisters and started studying the scriptures for herself for the first time. God has transformed her heart and given her a spiritual family that she can lean on. Glory to God for Tori being reconciled through repentance and baptism to her Maker!
