My name is Colin Pownall, I am 60 years old, married to Anita and have 4 children and 2 grandchildren. I had been brought up in children’s homes, then mental hospitals, then from one prison to another. My life was filled with hatred for all people fuelled by drug addiction and alcoholism. Motorbikes have always been part of my life but usually on the wrong side of the law. Before I became a Christian I broke most of the Gods laws and knew I was on a one-way trip to hell.
25 years ago I went into a church meeting and heard someone talking about a living Jesus. I had tried most things in life but never given Jesus a thought. That night I gave my life to Jesus and the response was immediate. I was filled with love and at long last I had found a family to love me. That night transformed my life. I still ride my bikes but now it’s with the Christian Motorcyclists Association. I travel the world telling others about the Jesus who changed my life and gave me a life worth living.
When I became a Christian I was introduced to the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International. Even though I knew nothing of scripture I knew that this was where I belonged and was the place that I could serve God. It is through this fellowship that I have been able to travel all over the world sharing how Jesus changes my life.
