  3. I am a post operative transwoman from an Afro Caribbean background. I have been attending church from a young age and also from a young age I felt that there was something different about me. I would pray at nights asking God to change me into a girl while I slept but it never happened of course! Growing up I would also pray asking God to leadme to a scripture saying that what I was feeling was wrong. I never found the scripture. Now that I have had the surgery I do like my body more but feel that because I went through with surgey I am constently living in a sinful nature. I would love to worship open with those that accept me and with other Christians who are transgender. Most of all I would like to know that God accepts me in my redefined body!
