About Dustin

Fries FHBCBible MSU

What do I have to say about myself?  Not too much, I guess.  I was raised in a wonderful Christian home with great parents.  It’s sometimes hard to believe that I’m not a child or teenager anymore–I’m an adult!  That’s kind of a rude awakening sometimes.  Here I am married, living completely on the other side of the country from where I was raised.  Now I’m directly responsible to God for not only my own relationship with Him, but I’m also spiritually responsible for my wife.  Honestly, I could not think of a better life than what I have right now.  I just can’t wait to see what God has for us as we continue to serve Him!
