Testimony

I was once so depressed I could not even smile. I reminisced about the good feelings laughter once brought. I felt like I was at the bottom of an ocean with a gigantic boulder holding me down and there was no one to help me. I hated myself. I hated my life. I just wanted to die.

However, I called on Jesus to set me free and he did what I thought was impossible. Today, Jesus is my joy. I can laugh again. If you need prayer, please call me personally at 1-800-471-9673.
