“The Judge said 'since you're doing life on the installment plan, here's your next installment of 50 to 60 months'.  Hopelessness man, hopelessness. I got another felony in prison while I was waiting to go to prison.  I was fighting over somebody’s shampoo.  I had to serve a...

“I remember my dad had a gun and shot it in the ceiling. I felt God put his arms and protection around me. I was five. I was sexually abused by three men. Things I went through as a child affected me now. I can see how it made my adulthood dysfunctional but I always had God....

“I was born into a Christian family in Thailand where my dad is a pastor. Many people would say I am a Christian because I grew up in a Christian family. I really did not accept Christ until I decided, for myself, to get baptized when I was 15 years old. God really worked in...

“I was kidnapped from my mother’s family, they were satanist. They had plans to make me into a female savior, which does not exist. They tried to make me kill this man and I said ‘no daddy, no, I can’t kill him’. I said no. I told Satan no. They beat me. They broke my nose a...

“For 34 years I wasn’t acting like me.  Whatever came out of my mouth did not come from God.  I couldn’t sit still very well.  I had to keep moving all the time.  I didn’t like to sit in one spot for more than an hour or I would panic.  I suffered from ADHD.  God doesn’t wan...

“On August 2012 I got a call from my daughter: 'Hey mom, Yamari has been holding food in her mouth for 30 minutes and it looks like water. When we talk to her, she’s not responding. She has peed on herself 2 times today.' (Yamari is 5 years old.) About 12 o’clock that night,...

"My Dad passed away a few years ago. It was a strain on all the parts of my life. I was 15 and never had any experience with the church. I had a few friends that were Christians. In media, you kind of hear about what Christians believe and what it represents. I looked at tha...

“I had a defibrillator put in my heart. I have chronic heart disease, diabetes, and kidney failure. It’s all because of God that I’m still here. If it had not been for the Lord, I wouldn’t know where I would be right now. God is in the miracle working business. When you trus...

“In October of 2015 I had emergency surgery, the CAT scan showed cancer.  They took about eight inches of my colon and removed my appendix.  The doctor came into my room, just like on television, and said you have stage 4 colon cancer.  The big “C” word.  I never thought tha...
