"I am ex military, an ex atheist and ex alcoholic. I have been redeemed by the grace of God. After 10 years of service, the military had to down size and I was on that list. I was released from the service in 2013 after a long list of off duty troubles and a final charge of religious discrimination. I was an atheist and I wouldn't back down. I never saw or heard God. I would persecute and mock the ones that did.
A friend of a friend had a dream. The Lord had given her the dream as a prompt to ask me to come to church. She had been afraid to ask me. She was aware of how I reacted to others about questions like that. She was obedient and asked anyways, I ended up agreeing to go! Not long after worship time I was in tears and had no clue what had come over me. After 10 minutes of leaky face I felt the most warm and comfortable, peaceful feeling I had ever felt. That night...at 28 years old...I suppose I said my first prayer or at least asked a question. I said, 'God...if you're real. I want to know because I'm tired of being lost and not knowing what to do.' BOOM. Right then, that presence was back. I could hear God. I was beside myself. Shortly after I asked Him into my life and nothing has been the same since.
The woman in the picture is now my wife. Thank God for her and her obedience. God sent her for sure. When I see these pictures wearing the shirts we made, it reminds me that I once was a young teen with a dream of someone like her. We want to LIVE KINGDOM every day. We want to be involved with inner healing, teens and the Natives, our kids are half Navajo and we want to give back to those people who treated me like their own. To point people to Christ. Anyone. Young. Old. Broken. Win some souls and be involved by serving others. God Bless and thanks for your time."
