Andrew Grant – Testimony


Last Updated on March 7, 2024 by Rocklyn Clarke


I was born on the Caribbean Island of Barbados to a father who did not profess Christ and to a mother who followed Jesus.

Growing up I attended churches of different denominations ranging from the traditional to the Charismatic. I also attended a Sunday School on Sunday afternoons at an Anglican (Episcopal) church.

Soon after I started secondary school (Middle School), I met up with some school mates who were sons of Christian missionaries in Barbados. With my late mother’s permission, I started to go a Friday night youth bible study held by the late Roberta Simpson, a Godly woman whose family had a large business in Barbados. Her family opened their home to all who wanted to hear the gospel.

By going to that bible study, I realized that I needed a savior. Although, I heard the word of God growing up, I realized that I needed more than just attendance at church. Every Friday night, Auntie Roberta (as she was called), would give an invitation to anyone who would like to follow on Jesus.  One Friday night, I told my friend James that if Auntie Roberta asked next week if anyone wanted to follow Jesus that I would raise my hand.

On Friday, May 29th, 1981, in that living room I raised my hand and made a conscious decision to follow Jesus. It was no big fanfare, no raw emotions and no cataclysmic experience. Just a smooth transition into the Kingdom of God.

Almost immediately, I started reading my bible more, enjoyed praying and definitely had an urge to evangelize. One of the first things that went from me was my penchant for cussing. I distinctly heard the Lord say, “you can’t be following me and cussing.” With that being said, I stopped immediately.

I have had my ups and downs since making that decision but as is written in the Gospel of John chapter 6, verses 68 and 69, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.  We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.”
