I am an ordinary guy. I have been married to my beautiful wife,April, for 16yrs, and I have been blessed with 2 great daughters. Like most men from the country, I enjoy hunting, fishing and the great outdoors. I am a truck driver for UPS Freight in Columbia, SC. I have been employed there for 14yrs.
Jesus came into my life 16yrs ago. My parents took my brother and I to church when we were younger and we were taught as long as you were a “good” person, then you would make it to Heaven. However, the results from that were, I made selfish choices and I never considered how my future would be effected until I was married and my oldest daughter, Ashton, was born. The love from a parent to a child is unconditional and I knew at that point some real changes had to be made in my life. I knew of God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit, but, I did not have a ”relationship” with Him. I always thought I was good enough to make it by “my” standards. Well, it was not until a few years ago, for the first time in my life, I truly heard and understood the Good news and realized, I was completly wrong. Jesus is the only way.( John 14:6) Jesus says” I am the way, the truth and the life. NO one comes to the Father except through Me.” After being convicted by the Holy Spirit, I finally “heard” God calling my name, I personally asked Jesus into my life.
It is written,when Jesus saves you, He gives you a new name. It is your new identity in Christ. My new name is Witness, and as a Witness, God has called me to reach out to the whole world. That is where GOAT comes from. God has given me the gift of courage to be a living witness and to reach out to others in Love with His word. Through this websight, I wish to supply Bibles and hand out Blood of Jesus pins to anyone the Holy Spirit leads me too. Thank you J-Bird for the awesome witnessing tool. I have attached a photo of the Blood of Jesus pins that I, myself make. I will be honored to send you some if you make a request on the Contact page.
In these few words, this is my story. Thank you for your time and I am here if you need me. God Bless
Your Brother in Christ,
Chris “Goat” Gray
