I grew up in a meth lab, but my dad provided the best and most fun life for me. I started drinking and smoking at age 12. I started using when I found my dad dead in the back of his pickup truck when I was that same age. By the time I was 19 years old I had lost my dad, mom, brother, grandparents, and an aunt and uncle. I used drugs and alcohol to numb my pain. Recently my wife left with my sons to go up north to get away from me because of how evil I was. I came to Teen Challenge not wanting a relationship with Jesus Christ, I hated him. But now I’m in love with Christ and all His glory, and I hope to help people find the light by being a soldier in his mighty kingdom.
