Art's Personal Testimony
"I was raised in a Spanish-speaking Evangelical church and came to know Christ as savior when I was 10 years old. When I was 15 years old, my mother died of a kidney ailment. At age 16, I was in an automobile accident which almost claimed my life. I then embarked on a ten year campaign against God; the picture that is most descriptive of this time is Forest Gump's, Lt. Dan on the ships mast during the hurricane, daring God to kill him. During this time, I engaged in a very sinful lifestyle. In 1979, I moved to Colorado, because I felt that if I didn't leave my environment I would end up either dead or in the penitentiary. I was married and divorced with in two years. I married my wife in 1983; two months prior to our marriage I rededicated my life to Christ, two weeks prior to our marriage my wife accepted Christ as her savior."
