I started smoking marijuana with my uncle at the age of 15. I had a hard time finding acceptance and fell into a drug-using crowd at school. Upon graduation, I went into military service and started using cocaine, hallucinogenics, and crack. The whole time I maintained a Christian front, even playing in the church band.
I became deeply depressed. God in his mercy reached down and led me to Life Challenge. While in the program I was able to see how deceived I had actually been and at the same time experience his joy and peace.
It was at Life Challenge that I felt God’s special call on my life. I plan on becoming a worship leader and assistant pastor. At present, I am happily serving as an intern at Life Challenge in the Men’s Division. I hope to assist others in finding Christ and know their own callings to the glory of God forever, amen!
