I had a brain tumor. I had a motorcycle accident. I asked for help, and ...
At the age of five, I was going to church every Sunday with my family. Soon we were going Sunday morning, Sunday night, and Wednesday night. My family was on that path until I was 13. Then, my parents’ relationship started to fail. We started going to church less and less. As the year went by, we stopped going completely.
Over the next couple of years, I started hanging out with the wrong crowd. At the age of 14, I got into a gang. I ran the streets and sold drugs every day for four years. I met a girl who I wanted to marry. I quit hanging out on the streets, but I continued selling drugs. We had children, and I was trying to support my family. I had no education to get a job, so I tried to work by selling drugs to support them.
When I was 24, my kids started going to a daycare at a church called Jubilee Worship Center. One Sunday, I decided to take my child to church. We went to Jubilee, and I felt like I was at home. I started going off and on for a few months. Then, I started to pray for God to change my life. I was tired of the life of selling drugs, and my family was falling apart.
At the age of 25, the doctors found a tumor on my brain. My family had moved out of our home. I had to spend twelve days in the hospital for observation. When I got out of the hospital, I stayed with my mom. I went back to church that Sunday. The pastor prayed for me. I had surgery that Monday, and I felt better than I had in a long time.
I decided to move back to Portage, so I could go back to work. I stayed with a friend. I started going to church every Sunday, still praying to be changed more by God. I went for a ride on my motorcycle, and I wrecked. My foot was broken in four places, but I knew God would help me through this like he helped me through my tumor. I went back to church on Sunday morning. I am now going to church on Sunday morning, Sunday night, and Wednesday night. God has blessed me with a job that pays double what I had been making, and I am working on getting my family back in church. My motto is, “Just trust in God, and He will provide.”

To get to know God; to be at peace with God; to have your sins forgiven; to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity; to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help understand the importance of being reconciled to God.
