Hi my name is Sarah Sampson and I am the youngest daughter of Billy and Jane Sampson, I would like to thank you for visiting our website. I was born on September 14, 1994 in Chicago, Illinois.
I had made a profession of faith when I was about six years old at the Welcome Hill Baptist Church in Lemont, Illinois. This is the church our family was members of for over 10 years. But in the summer of 2010 I had began to doubt my salvation. I would think about it every time I would be in church and when the preacher would give the invitation I would sit there and become stubborn and listen to the devils lies.
But on September 21, 2010, our family was in Street, Maryland at Cornerstone Baptist Church doing a revival where Dad was preaching. This is where God REALLY began to convict my heart! It was Monday night and Bro Jesse Kragiel came to sing for us that night. He said that he felt led to share his testimony so he did. His testimony helped me to realize that I really wasn’t saved and that I was just playing church. So after dad preached he gave the invitation.
I was sitting in the pew with my head down and Ashley looked over at me and said “Sarah are you alright?” And I said, “Yeah I’m ok.” But really I wasn’t. She looked at me again and said, “No something’s wrong!” I said to her, “Ashley I’m not saved.” So she grabbed me by one hand and Emily grabbed me by the other and they walked down to the alter with me and I gave my life fully to God and ever since then it’s been the best journey! As the song writer Rusty Goodman said, “I WOULDN’T TAKE NOTHING FOR MY JOURNEY NOW!!!!!!”
My sister’s and I have been raised in church our entire lives and we love to travel and minister as a family. It is a lot of fun and I also enjoy singing with them. I really love seeing people get help through what God has allowed our family to do.
Please pray for me and my family as we do the Lord’s work in the years to come. As of right now, I’m focusing on school. I will graduate in 2013. But still pray for me and my future. I’m praying that God will use me in every way he can. God bless you and I hope you continue to enjoy our site. Thanks for visiting!
