Hi! My name is Jessie and I was bound by addiction for over 5 years... I never new the way out. I always new I was better than I was but just was caught up in the drug circle... every time I was on my way up, something would happen that just turned me back to drugs...I have done many things to family I wish I could take back... it led me to become homeless, I was at the shelter one morning and woke up around 4 in the morning and just needed to go for a walk, so I left the shelter and went out just trying to clear my head. through the clarity of my head I cried out to the lord asking to help me... I was on the verge of suicide because I was just so tired of it. I knew the answer wasn't going to come fast so I decided to go on with my day, well it was around 1 in the afternoon I had just came out of an apt complex and was walking to the library when a van was crossing by and saw me. well they pulled in and a guy got out with a flyer....... the first thing they said was we have a Christian faith based program free of charge, and I new then that was my answer. upon arrival to the house, I was met by pastor Azor Barnes. He greeted me and maid me feel welcomed. as my time in the program grew I was weary of if the place could really help me... but then my eyes were open to the fact I haven't done drugs in over a month... not to mention it opened my eyes to how the lord can work in my life... it is a very tough program I can tell you that, but if you can keep your faith as I did you will be recovered... I am now 25 years old about to complete a welding school program, fixing to buy a new vehicle and rent an apt and just get back out in society... I have came along ways from when I was 22 and I owe it all to this program for showing me the way... I love my Pastor and pray for him and the ministry all the time.
