Hiya! I'm Autumn. I'm the oldest of the Hodnett kids.
When I was 9 years old my family went into full time deputation so the majority of my childhood was spent traveling all over the lower 48 States & I absolutely loved it! I look back on deputation with many great memories; but my favourite memory would have to be 17 August, 2014. I was under such strong conviction for what felt like weeks leading up to that date, & what felt like at every service the Preacher would preach on salvation. I struggled to push the conviction to the side, but managed to ignore it until that Sunday night in August. Bro. Sammy Allen was preaching on... you guessed it Salvation! He preached about the rapture, heaven, hell, EVERYTHING! I just knew that the Lord was gonna return before I could get to the alter. Bro Sammy said that the alter was open and I sat there fighting the Lord because "Everyone would know I wasn't saved".
I couldn't sit still any longer and knew that if I didn't get saved that night I was gonna go to hell. I went to the alter and asked the Lord to come into my heart and save me & He did. Through the years the Lord has allowed me to serve Him along side my family in many places and I'm forever thankful for that. He has been better to me than I deserve!
