Tom

TomI was dragged to church as a child, never understanding why I was there. Life seemed boring and mundane. When I was 16, it became my choice to attend.

I stayed just to socialise with my mates, but I was bored stiff. Aged 19 I was randomly attacked by four men. I thought my life was over. My “everything” was taken away and I became a fearful and bitter person. Why would God allow this to happen to me? – Perhaps to draw me closer to him!

God has helped me to become a strong and confident person and taught me to forgive. God is my best friend, I couldn’t live without him. Living for God is far from boring, my life feels complete now – full of fun and excitement.
