Hello. I am so happy that you have visited me today. I would like to tell you a little about myself.
I was born in Arkansas, and raised all over this beautiful country. My parents and three brothers moved to Flint, Michigan when I was thirteen years old. This move must have been ordained of God, because it put me in a position to hear the gospel, and my life was changed forever. I was not raised in a Christian home, and I can remember attending church about six times in my life. When I was eighteen years old - two months before my high school graduation - I was coerced by a friend to attend a revival meeting at the Burton Baptist Church. That night I heard the gospel for the first time in my life. I didn't even know John 3:16, but I knew that I would go to Hell if I died. I received Jesus Christ as my personal saviour, and I was immediately changed! Peace flooded my soul.
Three months after my conversion, I surrendered my life to serve God in whatever way that He wanted me to. One year later I entered the Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri to prepare for God's work. During my Junior year, I commited my life to be a missionary.
While I was attending BBC, I met and married Bill Cunningham. God gave us two beautiful daughters and a handsome son. We now have five granchildren who are firmly attached to my heart.
We went to Ethiopia, East Africa and served as missionaries until the Communists forced all missionaries to leave Ethiopia. We went directly to Western Australia where we worked for about ten years until sickness forced us to return to America. After two years, we went to Kenya, East Africa. After several years in Kenya, we worked as relief missionaries in Eastern and Western Europe, the Azores Islands, and Hong Kong.
In 2003, God led us to Bali, Indonesia. Bali is a small Island in Indonesia and the population is 95% Hindu. The people are lovely, warm, and friendly - but not receptive to the gospel of Jesus Christ. When a Balinese does convert to Christianity, he/she loses family, community, and sometimes their means of financial support. By the grace of God, we have established two churches that are pastored by very competent and dedicated national pastors. We are currently working in Bali, but since we cannot obtain a residence visa, we are forced to travel periodically from our home base in America to Bali.
My heart's desire since my conversion is to please God in my life and to see people accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
I also like to encourage people with humor as I share my experiences in "Life With LaMoin." I hope you will visit my blog and my newsletters and share my journey with me.
