“The college training helped me connect more deeply with the Lord and develop a richer relationship with Him. There can be a lot of distractions in Berkeley, so having this week dedicated just to Him really allowed me to cast aside my doubts and other temptations. Entering the conference, I wasn't even fully convinced of the Lord's existence, but as the week went on I was touched in many ways by the sharing and by my own personal morning times. By Tuesday night, I had decided that I wanted to be baptized and eventually had the chance to be reborn on Friday afternoon. As I hit the icy water, I felt at peace and as I emerged I felt the Lord in me. And it was then that I knew that I had made the right decision. For so long I had hesitated in being baptized, full of doubt as I was, but as the Ethiopian eunuch said in Acts 8:36, ‘Look, water, what prevents me from being baptized?’ Praise the Lord!” — Peter S.
