Hi, my name is Maria Elliston, and I’m very happy to be a Christian.

My life has not always been this way.  I used to be an alcoholic, a drug user, a person who was immoral.  I didn’t care much about my life.  One day, someone started talked to me, the Holy Spirit starting working on me.  I came to give my life to Jesus Christ.

I asked forgiveness of my sins, and he changed my life.  He took everything that I was, and took it away and gave me a new life.  My life since has been good. He has done miracles in my life.

My goal is to witness to other people, so they can come to know the Lord the way I have.

I wanted nothing to do with God.

It was several days before I figured out I was helping start a church. When I finally figured it out, I was confused. They didn’t act like other churches. They seemed happy but were not as pushy as the others I’ve come across. Pastor Darrell’s wife, Melissa, really made me feel welcome.

For the first time, I was making friends with people outside of my own gang. After a while, I started to think about God. I asked Pastor Darrell if he was planning on starting a Bible study, and, on July 28, 2013, he and I sat down for our first one. He shared the Gospel and his personal testimony with me.

In response to the truth presented to me, I surrendered my life to Christ. For the first time, I felt clean.

God was with me.


I wanted a better life then I was living. There had to be more to life and then just existing day to day. My life at that time had no purpose. I attend several churches but could not find what I was looking for. I finally found a church where I felt welcomed. I attended that church for several years.

To get to know the people I volunteered for everything I could. Altar Guild, welcome station, Bible studies, and well you get the picture. I was so busy doing “good works” I forgot about God.

Something was still missing! Suddenly I knew. I had not earnestly asked God to forgive me of my sins. I went into my bedroom, closed the door (to keep the cats out), folded a blanket for my knees at the side of my bed, and begin to pray. I poured my heart out to the Lord. I thought my heart would break.

I wept and prayed. My heart was broken! But Jesus came that night and healed all the damage I had done in my 70 years of life. When I left that bedroom I was a new woman.

My life has never been the same.

I remember being this broken little boy, always looking for what I can get. I used to watch television and greed for the money, clothes, shoes, and any other items.

But I would never be satisfied; my hunger was far too great. I remember in middle school I became so popular, I could walk down the hall with everyone saying, “hey Jayshaun, hi Jay.” You know when you get so popular in those days it becomes only about you.

My flesh was saying yes, but my heart was saying no. And then I came to youth camp about 2 years ago, it was Wednesday, middle of youth camp. Pastor was preaching and then says, “just come the altar, it’s here, if anyone can heal it’s Jesus.” My hands started shaking, I sweat a lot more. I say to myself if this is it, tell me now. So I start walking to the altar, and when I got there, God opened my heart and my eyes, not physically but spiritually.

He made me see things I’ve always passed. Now God is working on me.
