SAVED AND SET FREE - DELIVERED FROM MARIJUANA AND COCAINE
Came here from Brazil in 1976 at the age of 13 years old.
I then went to high school and got involved with the wrong crowd. I
started doing the wrong things that they were doing to feel accepted.
I met a person that introduced me to marijuana, then it I went on to
using cocaine and other type of drugs, I could see my life going down
I didn't have peace. I felt alone.
People were telling me about Jesus and how He loved me and died for
me. I belived all that but I never gave my life to Jesus Christ and let
him take over all my pain and hurt.
My life continued to get worst and worst to the point that I really
started thinking of just giving it all up and giving my life to Christ.
I thought to myself- If I do it I have nothing to lose.
I knew where a Christian Church was, so I got my skateboard and went to
the church, as I walked in the Church I was treated with love.
I felt the LOVE in that place. I sat and heard the sermon that Sunday
evening. It was a powerful message that the Pastor spoke on.
At the end of the service I was really touched and felt it was time for
me to give God my life and I didn't want to play games any more, so I
did just that.
I asked Jesus to come in to my life, and I asked Jesus to forgive me
for all my sins that I had committed.
I left the church that Sunday evening and walked outside feeling clean,
feeling as if a BIG rock had been lifted from my head. I went on to
tell my other friends about my decision to follow Jesus Christ. Two
months later, I had 2 of my friends do the same thing that I had done.
It's been 13 years since I gave my life to God and he has been
faithful, now I have peace, joy and life for ever.
