He lived in an orphanage for a short while until he was adopted by a Jewish couple. He proudly called himself a "Jewish Asian."
When he moved to Colorado, he made Christian friends and learned about Jesus. For years, Casey continued searching, although he was also influenced by the wrong crowd.
One day, he discovered his co-worker Suzette Broker, in a United Airlines break room studying her Bible study guides from Revelation Speaks Peace from the Voice of Prophecy. He got excited about what she was learning and asked if he could attend the meetings at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in downtown Denver too. She was so excited to bring him along.
Suzette had come to know Christ 24 years ago, but because of difficult and painful circumstances, she began to spend less and less time with God and soon found herself wandering away from Him. As the years passed, she distanced herself from God and the church. When she received a Revelation Speaks Peace handbill in the mail, she was compelled to attend.
One night she cried, "Lord, I want to come back to you and I want to bring someone with me. Please bring someone to my face." It was the next day when Casey found her in the break room and literally "came to her face," she recalls.
They attended the meetings together and were both convicted by the Holy Spirit. Suzette felt a strong conviction to renew her vows and Casey was ready to take a stand for Jesus in his new-found faith. Both were in tears when they requested baptism.
Pastor Christian Martin had the privilege of becoming their friend along with the joy of baptizing them and welcoming them to their new church family.
Casey now proclaims with a huge smile, "I'm a Seventh-day Adventist Asian!"
This is what Casey had to say when he was baptized: "Pastor going to bury all my bad sins and old Casey. I am going to be reborn as new person. I'm feeling excited. I already prayed to Jesus and God to not make me feel nervous. They [the church members] said we are here for you all the way until you get baptized and then we will grab you and make you our family and join other family members."
There's joy in heaven and in the hearts of our new family members.
