God moved us to the community of Hardinsburg, Kentucky in 1999. He laid on our hearts to join Hardinsburg Missionary Baptist Church. My husband, John E. Geary II, preached there along with other God-called preachers. We took a trip of faith and God has helped us through everything. Now, God has moved us to help start a church in Fordsville,Ky. We were there over three years and the church was doing really good and was starting to grow. John is now helping at Pleasant View Missionary Baptist Church. You really can't ask too much of my God.

He is the dearest friend I ever had. He saved my soul when I was an eleven-year-old girl. I was getting ready for bed and this terrible fear came to me deep in my soul and I tried to ignore it but couldn't. I went to mom and told her that my heart was hurting. She hugged me and we sat down on the edge of her and Dad's water bed. Mom and I prayed with many tears and Heaven just flooded my soul. That terrible fear was gone and I was saved. I thank my saviour for coming to my house that night, he didn't have to, but his love came to me that night and I praise his holy name for going all the way for me.

He saved my husband when he was a seven-year-old boy at the altar of Walnut Grove Missionary Baptist Church. Satan was using on him that he would have to give up his bike to be saved. John gave that old bike up and came to the altar and was saved. Satan will try to use anything on you to keep you from going with God, but he is, as my husband says, "a defeated foe", and a liar and the author of it. So just get that serpent out of your way and go with God. God has never lead me wrong, and Satan will always lead you wrong.

My oldest son, Noah Walker Geary, was saved June the 9th on a Sunday night at Hardinsburg Missionary Baptist Church. The preaching was from Mark 4:36: And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. Well, my son, a little ship, ran up to the altar and I shouted to the Lord for saving his soul. Oh, what a wonderful night that was. God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit, and the church came together to see someone born into the Kingdom of Heaven. I rejoice still thinking about what God has done for me and my family.

My second son, Isaac Brice Geary, was saved on a Sunday morning right after service on November 7th, 2004. The Lord had been dealing with him for weeks. He would be crying and in tears at the end of every service but just wouldn't surrender. On November 7th, he left his Bible in the church, he came back in, still crying, and he was asked if he wanted us to pray with him. Isaac said, "no, he wanted the church to pray with him." So we all came back in and prayed and Isaac wasn't satisfied the first time he prayed but he got through to God the second time and he was saved. The whole church was able to rejoice with Isaac. He was just swelling in his soul and tears streaming down while everyone was testifying. John shouted and I could just cry and laugh...just like when I had soon as I had Isaac I just got happy and laughed and laughed.

Abigail Hope Geary and Caleb Seth Geary will be saved one day too. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness. The Lord has given me a promise and I hold on to it in the good and bad times. Thank you Lord for your unspeakable gift. The gift of salvation is better felt than told.
