“This all happened within a week.  The FBI was looking for me.  My human trafficker went to prison.  I was back on the street.  I had been raped and beat up by a drug dealer.  The day after that, I went to jail.  I almost died that night from an overdose of heroin. I knew I was in a vicious cycle and that I was never going to get out of it.  I knew that I had to change.  They got us out of jail to go to church.  That’s when I started thinking that there has to be another way.  You always hear about these stories of God.  I started reading and tearing out pages of pamphlets that they were giving us and putting them on the wall.  I would read them over and over.  When I started thinking about using, I would refer back to one that said to tell the enemy to go to the cross and deal with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  I would do that constantly and it worked.  It’s pretty amazing.  The thoughts would go away and I was able to start sleeping.  Family started reaching out to me.  That was 3 years ago.  I went into the Homestead Ministry program that helped me get my life back.  They really influenced my life.  God settles my heart, eases my mind, and keeps me at peace.  I surrender my life to God.  My name is Pepper and I surrender.”
