|Jindal gives testimony on his Christian faith|
Gov. Bobby Jindal told the capacity crowd at First Baptist Church in Vidalia on Sunday that he began praying when he was just a child.
"I asked for an "A" in history and said I would be nice to my little brother," he said. "I asked for a new toy and said I would not ask for anything else."
The Baton Rouge native said his best friend gave him a Bible for Christmas one year.
"I looked in it to see if there was money," he said.
Jindal said he was perplexed by the gift.
"You can get a Bible at any hotel," he said. "I didn't understand it. But this one had my name on it so there was no way I could exchange it."
Jindal said he tossed the Bible in the back of his closet. But after the death of his grandfather -- his "hero" -- he picked it up and read it.
"I started with Genesis," he said. "It was inspiring, and yet parts were confusing. I never could understand the who begat who. There were also familiar stories such as Noah's Ark and the Tower of Babel which I thought were Disney movies when I was young."
The governor said that he accepted Christ as his savior when he went to a musical to watch a friend perform.
"We all need prayer," he said. "And we need to plant seeds."
