I am Moses Shetler. I'm 20 years old. I was born & raised Amish in upstate New York.
When I was 18 years old I left the Amish to have more fun and live my life however I wanted to. I always thought English have more fun and when I hung out with my English friends I always felt happier. In the Amish, I was at the age to get baptized and I didn't want to be baptized Amish so I left.
After a few months out here, I realized that there is more to life than just running around and making bad decisions plus I missed my family. So I started going to church with friends so I wouldn't be home alone. David Mast gave me an English Bible but I didn't want to read it because I was afraid the Bible would make me feel guilty for how I was living. I didn't understand church at first but after a few weeks I asked my friends about God.
Eventually, I started reading the Bible and discovered things I never knew when I was Amish. I learned that just living by strict rules is not the way to heaven.
A friend showed me Bible verses about getting saved like, we are not saved by works but by God's mercy. Then I prayed the sinner's prayer. God saved me. Today, I want to get baptized so everyone can see I am a true believer in God.
