Gathering Together

Sudaan Carter's Personal Testimony

 

My name is Sudaan Carter and this is my testimony on where I came from and where I am going.  I have been through a lot in my life. I have endured many trials and tribulations but God has always proved me with a way out.  Abused as a child, I left home at the age of fifteen.  I was homeless, living in an abandoned house until I received help from a person in the community.  They let me stay at their home for awhile, until I received more help from a teacher at the school I was going to.  After that I ended up in numerous foster homes until I was nineteen.

While I was in foster care I was held at gun point for no specific reason.  But I consider it to be a blessing now although I did not see it as one then.  But that night I realized that if I would have died that night I would have gone straight to hell.  But God gave me another change.  During the next couple of months I spent time a lot of time living in different people’s homes because I kept on getting into trouble.  I was doing things that I had no business doing.  That all stopped when I was eighteen years old and I landed at this Christian home.  I knew that it was my last change and I had to get myself together and make the best of my situation that I was in.

So in the fall of 2008 I gave up my life and received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.  I then began to start seeking God.  After a couple of church services my Sunday school teacher told me that she believed and had a vision that I was called to preach.  Once she told me that I was scared I did

 

And then I decided to go ahead with it.  I just did not understand why God had called me to preach the Gospel.   A couple of years later I became homeless again.  But I was still serving God and pushing for the mark.  I decided I was going to leave any and everything to fulfill my calling as an Evangelist and also to finish my degree in Networking Technology

I am able to do one thing I love more than anything and that is writing.  I am not a published author yet. I am just a write for this online Christian magazine company.  I write articles from time to time.  None of this could have happened if God wasn’t in the picture.  All of the bad things in my life have made me the stronger person that I am today.   I blame no one and I am committed to being the best at whatever I do.

I don’t know what lies ahead.  But I do know I am ready to live life and enjoy life at it’s fulfill my calling on this earth.
