GaryMy parents divorced when I was a young teenager, leading me to a pretty wayward lifestyle. I began using drugs and found that it made me feel good, not realising that all I was doing was blocking my emotions. Then came alcohol and thirty years of addiction, misery and hell. The last fifteen years of that period has been a quest for peace and freedom; eight residential rehabs, counselling, AA, NA, you name it. Addiction remained in me like a demon; relapse after relapse.

My upbringing was fully secular but during these last fifteen years I have yearned for faith in my life. Less than one year ago I decided to fully give my life to Jesus and I’ve never looked back from that day. I know without doubt that I can trust our Lord. I opened the floodgates of my heart to Jesus and he blessed me with a freedom I’ve never known. THANK YOU LORD.
