My name is Joe Laughlin,
and I am a bus kid.
At 5 years of age, while living in the projects of southwest Los Angeles, two men in suits knocked on our door. They asked my parents if we could ride the bus to Sunday school to learn about Jesus and the Bible. I had no idea who Jesus was since I had never heard of Him in our home. Week after week my brother and I would go to Sunday school to learn about the love of Jesus. Little did I know the impact it would make in my life.
Although I was not saved until I was twenty-one, what I learned as a young boy brought me to salvation on January 16, 1999. Since my salvation, God has called me to preach and has given me a beautiful, godly wife and wonderful daughter to serve Him with.
