Today, we've got a special treat! Here is a beautiful word of testimony from Brother Ken Staley on his 50th spiritual birthday.
Fifty years ago today, Sunday, June 11, 1967, in a humble, stone building known as the Glassport Branch of The Church of Jesus Christ (“The Pure and Unadulterated Restored Gospel,” as the sign in front of that church building says), my life was changed forever as I rose upon my feet and proclaimed, “I want to be baptized.”
At 13 years old, there was not a lot about this world that I really knew. As a side note, my entire family, my father, mother, and siblings were all out of town that day, visiting family in Erie, Pennsylvania. Nonetheless, I was baptized within 30 minutes of my request, without anyone ever having contacted my parents. Surprisingly, they were both fine with that!
