Confirmation Testimony: Louis Zimmer

Posted on with 1 Comments

Hello I am Louis Richard Zimmer. I am from Escondido California. I was
Born on December eleventh 2001. My favorite habits are playing video
games longboarding, and eating ice cream. I am exactly 6'4. And here is
my story with god.

My family has been a big part of my faith. They and my teacher from third
grade help me spark my faith. My nana talked about God and Jesus since I
was a baby. I did not know what any of this meant until the third grade was
when I truly get to knew him. I went to school at Grace Lutheran School.

My teacher was Mrs. Brumfield. She taught me everything i didn't know
about god. Since that first day I have always knew god was. But in times
my faith has been tested because on May, 11 2015 is when my nana was
diagnosed with cancer. I thought god was going to take away my sweet
nana. So I hated him for a while. But my nana told me something one day
that made me love god again. She said that the cancer was not as big as it
was. And she called the cancer "can cure". So when I heard those words
leave her mouth I prayed every day. And then eventually my nana beat
cancer and I was so happy. But there is also another time in my life when
my faith was challenged. When I was born my chest was sunken into my
body. This was called Pectus Excavatum. This could have killed me but this
doctor name doctor Losso. He said he could perform a surgery that could
save me. So on June 15 2015. The surgery went well and the titanium bar
was put into my chest. I hated staying in the hospital for a whole week. I
was in so much pain I thought sometimes I didn't want to live anymore. But
everyone was praying for me and then god healed me and I got out of the
hospital. And so my family was a big part of my faith and I will never forget


A lot of people ask me what does the cross mean to you. When I think of
the cross I think of Jesus dying for are sins. And god giving his only
powerful son to die for sinners like us. But what it really means to me is that
Jesus loves each and every one of us the same that he went and did this
noble act. Jesus knew he was going to be betrayed by one of his disciples
and eventually die. But he didn't do anything to stop this from happening.
He could sent his whole army of angels and killed all the romans. But he
didn't because he loves us so much. The high priests of Israel didn't
understand that he was the son of God. Pilate listened to the crowd and
went and crucified. But the one thing that confused me the most is why
didn't he just went to heaven after he died. In scripture says he died and
went to hell for three days. He probably wanted to show Satan how he
truly was the son of God. I still can't believe that this mighty god did this
for us who are sinners.

God has a plan for everyone in their lives. My calling is going to go join the
US. Army and fight for my country. I don't why he is calling me to this act
but every night I hear these words in my head. You will be the greatest of
warriors. So I believe God is calling me to serve my country as a core man for
the us army. I will be there on the front lines fighting with my comrades and
then telling about the stories of Christ. The battle of David and Goliath will
be the first story because we will be soldiers. This is why I'm going to take
the ROTC classes over at Charter High School. And then I will be my
brothers in sisters in arms. I will always carry a bible with me wherever I go.

I would just like to thank My Mother and Father for giving me this chance to
help me learn about Christ. And also thank my friends Justus and Tina for
never for giving up on me. Thank you.
