On January 11th, 2021, AM HQ Intern-Staff Ashley Barnes signed and officially became a committed member of AM International.
The signing was led by AM Headquarter staff. They opened with prayer and gave a brief history of AM and how valuable it is to belong in a community where the Holy Spirit has done great works.
“This is a special time in my life. I thank God for allowing me to be surrounded by all my leaders so that I can grow spiritually. I’m very thankful for each one of you and for the time you take to raise me. Sometimes I’m ungrateful, but I really appreciate you guys,” said Ashley. “I thank God for giving me the opportunity to commit my life to Him. This day came sooner than expected, but from this day forward I vow to put Him at the center of my life. I am excited to continue this journey and the many more years to come. Thank you to everyone who has also kept me in your prayers.”
Her concluding remarks were, “I have been to many other fellowships, but I am glad God led me to this community. Everyone testifies of the truth and really lives a life following Jesus.” Everyone was full of joy and big smiles as Ashley signed the commitment card.
Ashley was evangelized in Atlanta by AM staff, Vanessa. She later was a participant in the AM Los Angeles chapter. She is the first AM committed member of 2021.
May God continue to be with her on this journey and may she continue to grow spiritually into the woman God has called her to be.
