"It won't affect you won't affect me and i said no. I can't do that. That was just not in maine to do something like that and not sit well. This is my eleventh pregnancy. I hit ten and hit two wants stillborn ahead. A the risks. Were just miscarriages up. Two to three months anna so well. Maybe this time i won't have this show but i said i'm not having no abortion. And that's when he moved in he said well. If you're going to have the spe be in my is going to be mine too. He said i can't let you live here and And party and do whatever you're doing he's the it's right jan. I said okay so we live together. We had jose and he was smythe pregnancy. After all those years in we finally sat down and talked about it and we got married but before we got married. We started going to church that he had attended while he wasn't. Oh you one day. He said well. If you don't wanna go to church hand. I'm on take my son. We're going to church. That was the longest stay up my life because he took jose. And i'm standing there and they laugh. Sm not going to church. They left and it seemed like it took hours and hours for them to return. It must have been about three or four hours but it was so long this time of my life. It's first time he was separate from. And so i thought no next time i'm going to go. I can't i can't just let him take. What if he takes him. Never comes back. And so. That's how i ended up going to church. I guess that was a wave. The lord was was lead me to to hear his word to hear the gospel in i went. Sometimes i'd go. I'd sit there. And i fall asleep or i get this interested in and think about something else but as the weeks went by that i went on sunday and sunday afternoon on wednesday i mean every week and i thought oh how born gotta do this again but i think the turning point was the sunday school when it was present at when we learn and i interacted in the sunday school and and then that's when i began to realize that it was the tool that he made he. He used my husband. Bring me to church. But it was up to me to accept lower when i was talking with the the pastor's wife. We've talked several times about the in del award. What i needed to do. And sometimes in the sunday school class they would ask me. You know different things about my religion. And i would. I would tell them you now. This was how to use and then they would relate to. You know this is what we do. And this is how you can accept the lord and and They more or less kind of walk me through. How when i accept lord and it took me took me probably about three months to the think about to come home after church in think about. Is this what i wanna to do. The answer was always yes but in the back of my mind would when you raise on reservation with with a different belief you just have to think about it how it's gonna affect not only your life but your your relationship with your brothers and sisters. My brothers and sisters are still on the risk patient. They are not christian in thinking. How is this going. Say my relationship with my family and it took me three months to think it through and decide for myself.

They knew that they were doing wrong. But after i grew up. I graduated from high school and all i wanted to do was get off the reservation. I have no idea why but in my father's teaching he always said an evening taught us. You know talk to us about morals and ethics and you know what to do. How can you know just everyday everyday thing and we'd sit down and he talked to me and He always say whatever you do. You need to get an education. He this reservation is not gonna be here forever and if it is still reservation there's not gonna be hardly anything here for for kids like you that grow up and know english and put in There's gonna be hardly any jobs in what what can you. What can you do here. He said you need to get an education. You need to do something something with your life. At that time. He realized he was not calling. This is looking at me. He said all.

He's he always told me he said You know there's other religion other than our religion and christianity and he said. I don't know where to contact anybody about christianity but i just know that no matter what it is no matter where you are that you pray. There's nothing wrong with praying and you take christianity. I don't hold that against you. it's good. It's a good good thing that they do they. They have their own teaching and that he thought. Since i was getting off the reservation that might be something i would think about but i sure didn't i went to dallas took keyboard in net at that time computers just coming in. I went for keyboard operator. And i got through school. I think it was like a year school on finished in six months. In all this time i wasn't a christian. Never you know went to church.

Just so i could have something to do. And when i When i had to dallas it was It was very scary cy. It was huge change from the reservation. We got on the bus. Go downtown the first day of school. My sister was there for six months before i was and we got on that bus and i hung on for dear life. Downtown thing was moving so fast now as telling my sister. Why don't they slow this down.

They're not gonna just sit around when things aren't right or when something needs to be done. That reminds me of god. He wasn't content to leave us in our fallen state and abandoned us to what our sins deserve. No he sent the lord. Jesus christ to rescue us by giving his very life so that we could be forgiven. Have hope and all live forever with him. Jesus himself said most assuredly i say to you he who hears my word and believes in him who sent me has eternal life and show not come into judgment but has passed out of death into life.
