Krystle-Elder

Hi all! My name is Krystle. I was born and raised in Oregon. I grew up in and around the church knowing about Jesus and singing all the Sunday school songs. After my parents’ divorce, I had this yearning to be accepted and loved by my dad, whose involvement was seldom. As I grew into adolescence I searched for ways to fill this void and made a lot of poor decisions even though I knew “God was there”. As an adult I continued to live in a way that that did not honor God.
On June 5 2016, I rededicated my life to Jesus Christ and was baptized. The powerful draw for my flesh to sin was a struggle for me, but the Holy Spirit helped me through my weaknesses. I felt a conviction so deep that I came crashing into a full surrender! Having a personal relationship with Jesus has helped me to better understand my view of who I thought God was. I’ve realized that view was skewed by the iniquities of my earthly father. After all, there’s no greater love than the love of God who is “A Father of the fatherless…” (Psalm 68:5).
My transformation continues as my hunger and thirst for the Lord grows. The more time I spend getting to know God, the more I realize what a “good good Father” He’s always been. I’m thankful God has led me to serve with Warriors For Christ. It’s been such a blessing to see how the Holy Spirit has been moving and preparing us so that, as warriors, we can stand up and stand out as true advocates for Jesus.
