Valerie White-Bynumm –
“I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I want to first thank you for taking the time out of your schedules to read my letter and to consider making a donation to CLI. Your donations will benefit people like me who have a calling on their lives and a hunger to grow stronger in the Lord but lack the finances that are incurred.
“I live in the United States of America. I have lived in Baltimore City, Maryland for most of my life. My parents were humble hard working people, as am I. I come from of family of nine, and I myself have seven wonderful children. My parents were not regular church goers, but they always sent my siblings and I to Sunday school. My mother often recited the 23rd Psalm with me, and my father often talked about how his parents made him sit through two services each Sunday. He would use Sunday as a rest day .
“There is no great tragedy or particular moment in my life when I suddenly believed that Jesus died for my sins on the cross. I feel as if , for as long as I can remember ; I have always prayed to God , in the name of The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. I publicly accepted Christ as my Savior and repented from my sins when I was 14 years old. I spent a great deal of time going to Church with my best friend and her family. I learned how to pray and how to repent for my sins, but I didn’t understand what it meant to have a personal relationship with God. I have called myself, testing God or bargaining with God. But I know who God is, and I want him to use me a living testimony as to his grace and his glory. I live for Jesus, and I want others to know how they can share in this joy and peace that I have found.
“I live in the inner city where drug and alcohol abuse are steadily increasing. The crime rate and the unemployment rates are high. The people have a great need for the word to meet them where they are, because there are churches on every other corner yet so many are not compelled to go into them.”
Valerie White-Bynumm Receives a Scholarship
“Jesus delivered me, and I know that if he did it for me, he can do it for others also. I am called to the ministry of evangelism. I am encouraged by my Pastor and my family to continue on in my ministry. I want to learn more about the Bible to become more effective in my deliverance of the word.
“It is my dream to someday co-pastor a church with my husband; but for now I believe that I am right where God wants me to be and I feel a great need to continue on this path of evangelism and to further my christian education.”

In this dangerous setting, Valerie White-Bynumm is aware that only the power of God brought her through life without allowing her to become entangled in these things.
