“I was once homeless and a drug addict. My lifestyle of addiction to crack cocaine took everything away from me. My family and friends didn’t respect me. I didn’t even respect myself. I couldn’t keep a job because I wanted to get high more than I wanted to work. My own children didn’t respect me anymore. I wound up on the street living in homeless shelters and sometimes sleeping on subway trains. Dirty and stinky but still wanting to get high on crack.”
“I couldn’t keep a job. And whatever money I did earn, wound up in a crack pipe. I got locked up in jail a few times, but that didn’t stop me. Tried a few drug rehabilitation centers on my own. They worked for a little while, but I still wanted to get high.”
“Finally, I got sick and tired of being sick and tired. I bought a one-way ticket to another city. I didn’t have any family or friends in this city. Didn’t know my way around town. I asked God to help me. I found a church and asked God to take away my desire for crack cocaine.I depended on nobody but God. I never went hungry. I was never in harms way. I accepted Jesus Christ into my heart as my personal Savior. That was five years ago. Three years ago, God sent me a wife. We got married on March 2008. I have written three books. My first two books are published and can be bought in Barnes & Noble right now.
“How can you ever repay God? He owns everything around and in the world. The Bible says to “…love your neighbor as you love yourself”. To show my gratitude to God, I tell everybody about the goodness of the Lord, Jesus Christ. Today, I am the President of Children of the Lord Outreach Ministries, Inc. Our ministry provides church services to homeless shelters, nursing homes and prisons.”I hope my books can inspire and help someone still caught in the struggle of addiction. God Bless!”
