Bobby Sutton
(Adult Assistant Sunday School Teacher)

     Hello friend, My name is Robert V. Sutton. I'm the assistant Adult Sunday School Teacher at New Center Baptist Church. I really don't know what to say here except that I love Jesus very much. He is my everything. I love being at New Center Baptist Church. All the people there are such a blessing to me. I started at New Center Church long time ago. I was saved in that church, Baptized there, and met my lovely wife there. Then six years ago on June 6th. I was wed to April there in New Center. I don't like to talk about myself much, but I do like to talk about my Jesus. God is so awesome. I want to tell you what God has done for me. About 8 or 9 years ago, I wasn't living where God could use me. I was called to preach at age 16, and decided to run. I done stuff that I shouldn't have done. Drinking & Drugs where my way of life. I met many people in the next 3 1\2 years that told me about God, but I didn't want to listen. Man, I was having the time of my life. SO I THOUGHT. God had placed the calling on my life. So he placed me in a certain mans path for a reason. His name is Bob Mandershied. (I guess that is how you spell it) But he showed me God's love in a way that it scared me to death. I was painting his house so I wasn't going any where for a while. Every week I talked with him. When I was angry from the withdraws of drugs. I mean I was to the point of mean. Very belligerent. He told me, "Bob, Let's pray about it." I knew where that was leading and the Holy Spirit began to convict me of my life. The only way to stop was to run. Yes, run to the other side of the house to get away from him. But one day I was painting a wall outside his house. I worked off a ladder for about 4 hrs. After I finished trimming the wall in with a brush. Began to walk up the ladder for the last time. The roller and bucket were on the roof. All I had to do is go up and back down and I was in the clear the rest of the day. I went up the ladder. I reached the top, about to step on the roof. The bottoms of my feet were about 10 feet off the ground. when the ladder I was on give way and fell bring me down too. The side of that 20 foot ladder hit me in the spine, making my legs go completely numb. luck? No, it was God. The first thought that crossed my mind was RUN NOW. I pulled myself up to the top of the steps from where I landed upside down; dragging my lower half behind. I couldn't feel my legs at all. I didn't even knew that I had them. The carpenters on that job took two 2 x 4 studs and a piece of 1\2 inch plywood. They made a stretcher for me. I was carried off that job that day. Placed in a GMC Suburban truck. and drove to the nearest clinic. On the way Bob told me, "Bobby, you probably don't want to hear this but I am going to pray for you." I couldn't run now. As he prayed for me to be all right, I was praying to God for my sins. We got to the clinic and was carried in to be placed on an X-ray machine. I felt like I was there for hours. Still praying forgive me. I laid there pleading with God. I'll do this and I'll do that. I told Him, but no response. I actually lived the scripture. I call and you'll not answer. Then you'll call and I won't answer. I'm telling you that it is the most coldest feeling I have ever felt. I finally give in. "God," I said, "just let me get up and walk out of this place. And I'll do what you will have me to do." It was at that very moment that I felt my legs. When they told me that nothing was wrong and I could get up. I sure did get up and I walked out of that clinic thanking God that He heard my prayer. Six months before that happened I had a bicycle wreck. God showed me right quick, I had two accidents in less than a year. the next one would be death if I didn't come home. I went to New Center Baptist Church the next Sunday and give my life to God. Praise His Holy Name. Thank you for taking the time to read this. My life's goal is to help someone find there way from where I was to where I am now.
I hope this has blessed you, richly. I give all the thanks and praise to my Jesus. I know it is long, but God is worth it.
