Tracy's Story 
 
I became a Christian after my youngest daughters both began following God. While they joined the church youth group, I was invited to attend an Alpha course. I was the sceptical one, often asking for answers and explanations! I don’t know what they thought of me but I was soon hooked! I loved their way of life! 
 
It was when I visited the Philippines, I think I really got to know God and trust in him. All that I had heard about Jesus, really became real. I was so anxious about travelling to the Phillipines as part of a mission team, for years I have suffered from anxieties and I was afraid that this would overwhelm me. 
  
We visited a Philippine prison and we were to baptise some of the inmates, but I just hid, my anxiety was too great and all I could think was, ‘who am I?’ But God spoke to me and said, ‘you can do it’, so I stepped out in faith, and baptized a prisoner. WOW, what a feeling, I could, and did do it! Anxieties, what anxieties? God healed me from that moment! 
 
Now I believe more than ever in the love power of our Lord. I have never looked back. I love my life and look forward to learning and serving God more and more. I am praying, and believe that my husband and rest of my family will know Him too. It’s only a matter of time! xx
