The testimony of a Project Hope student never fails to touch my heart and I hope you will be encouraged by Billy’s.
“I have been running from God’s word for the past 8 years, and still he has proven faithful by delivering me from a hopeless drug addiction, and by renewing my mind with the Holy Spirit. He has answered the prayers of my loving family and restored broken relationships that seemed lost forever. I now have the constant desire to speak of the Lord’s grace and countless miracles He is still performing in my life.”
I want to share Cassandra’s miraculous story with you.
“My name is Cassandra. I have always believed in God and I grew up with a Christian family. We were poor and my mother struggled to make ends meet. My dad was hardly ever around and I had to learn to take care of myself. After two and a half years in a shelter we moved to Texas to start our lives over. My grandmother died and at 12 years old I fell into a deep depression. I started using drugs and became addicted to anything that helped me get out of reality. The day after my 16th birthday I was sexually abused by a drug dealer. I got pregnant and had a miscarriage. I was devastated and started using drugs every single day. I started using crystal meth and it took over my mind. I wanted meth more than my family, more than food, more than anything. My best friend told me about Project Hope because she wanted to go there and get clean. God sent me to Project Hope and today I am not cold-hearted anymore. I can love myself now and today I have meaning in my life. I thank God every day.”
I want you to feel the awe and amazement I feel as I witness women leaving their drugs behind and coming to know and serve Jesus Christ. Victoria is one shining example. This is her testimony.
“By the time I was 16 I was a prostitute and I was smoking meth. My life was out of control. I would not eat for days at a time because I was convinced I was overweight and I only weighed 80 pounds. Drugs were my life and I sold my body to get them. When I got to Project Hope I didn’t believe in God and I didnt believe anything in the bible. But God has worked a miracle in me. I now have a relationship with God and He is giving me my family back. I thank the Lord Jesus for his mercy and compassion. The Scripture I stand on is I John 4:8 “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” Once again, the cure for addiction is clear, it’s the love of Jesus.
