He started to question me and saw that I always have assumed it was just family and friends gathering around and sharing the stories at nice brick building. On that night, he took his time to introduce me to Jesus Christ and explained about how He created the Earth and His life on the Earth.

For twenty years, I was very involved in my church such as serving, praying, signing, and teaching.

York worked in railroad construction, logging, and farming to aid his widowed mother in raising and supporting his ten siblings. York was a very devout Christian in his church, a protestant denomination that prohibited violence. On his initial, mandatory draft registration York had claimed himself a conscientious objector; his claim was denied and he was drafted in November of 1917 at 29 years of age.

Antwone’s father was murdered before he was born. Antwone lived in an orphanage for the first two years of his life and was then adopted by his foster parents, Mr. and Mrs. Tate. Antwone lived with two other foster children and the Tate’s older daughter. They attended a church founded by Mr. Tate and it did not appear that Antwone had a strong religious connection to the church. He would sometimes fake his enjoyment by clapping and dancing to appease Mrs. Tate.
As a child he spoke five languages, and his English lacked an accent (p 91 s 152). A d’Anconia did not permit himself “to think he is born a d’Anconia” — he was “expected to become one” (p 91 s 152).

When he was ten he spent the winter “in Madrid, at the home of the Duke of Alba” (p 92 s 152). The winter after that, he “shipped out as a cabin boy on a cargo steamer that carried d’Anconia copper” and worked for three months while his father searched for him.
LUTHER THE REFORMER HIS LIFE AND HIS LEGACY Kyle Sutton Engaging Reformation and Modern Christianity CH503-XD September 30, 2011 On November 10, 1483, Hans and Margarethe Luder ushered into life their second born son. As faithful Catholics, they quickly arranged for their child’s baptism and, because their son’s christening happened on the feast of St. Martin, the lad left the church that day named Martin, as was the custom of the day. Within a year of Martin’s birth, the Luder family moved from Eisleben (a small town in the region of Saxony in modern Germany) to a town 10 miles away: Mansfield. Perhaps a new town would offer better opportunities for livelihood.  Martin was the son of peasants.

From my earliest recollection, I went to church every Sunday because both my mother and father were ordained ministers. Church was not an option and there was major preparation on Saturday to keep down on confusion Sunday morning. I can truly say I did not understand why we attended church so much. I did not understand the impact of this ritual until I was well into adulthood. I remember losing my older sister to Lupus.
