Alexandra Raen - Leicester, United Kingdom
Even though born into a vegetarian Christian family, it was a real shock for me at the age of 16 when my whole family turned into meat-eaters on the "health" advice and insistence of our family’s GP.
I wanted to refrain from meat-eating for the sake of compassion towards animals. It was very confusing and frustrating. My desperate cry to the Lord was that if other like-minded Christians exist, would He kindly introduce them to me. He did! I stumbled onto and became a member of Kindness Unlimited at the age of 36 and through them I was introduced to Frank and Mary’s website and started enjoying weekly sermons on true compassionate Biblical teaching.
My son, Roy, and I have been vegan now since the end of 2003, because of our compassion for animals, and we also believe that it is Biblical. Neither of us have been sick a single day since, which is an added bonus.
