Used, Abused and Unloved By Those He Trusted

May 8, 2016

He’s now a grandfather, but his early days were horrendous. Abused physically and sexually by his father, he grew up confused, angry and feeling unloved.

No surprise therefore that he spent a total of 20 years in prison, five of them for armed robbery. He went down the drugs route, ending up on crack cocaine.

Now he’s moved on and slowly getting a sense of perspective and that it wasn’t all his fault. Thankfully he treated his children and grandchildren in a more loving way.

I told him that I knew someone who loves him as he is, and has always loved him. I shared about God, Jesus, sin and repentance. He told me he recently went to church. I told him about the church I attended, and he said: “that’s near where I live”. He couldn’t come this week, but might be able to come next Sunday. He took away a gospel tract.

Had The Privilege of Praying With Two Women Today

March 13, 2015

silhouette of a woman    The first woman had met with a couple of Christians some time ago but had drifted away from them and God. I prayed with her, encouraged her and she was happy to take away a Luke’s Gospel. I shared some of my testimony with her to indicate to her the reality of a loving God in the person of Jesus. I also gave her a link to a good British website http://www.newchristian.org.uk and invited her to read the “Share Your Story Here” section which had personal stories on the left hand side of the page.    image of a woman

A lady team member called me over to pray with the second woman. She had relationship issues with her partner who was heavily involved in drug taking. She also had a medical problem that was concerning her.  We both prayed and afterwards she said how peaceful she felt. We explained that was the presence of God.
