My uncle molested me when I was 5yrs old and I never told anyone until I was 12yrs old. Throughout my school years I was always picked on and teased by other kids. I started using drugs when I was 12yrs old and It continued to progress as I got older. As a result from the picking and teasing I experienced loneliness, which led into depression. I just wanted to be accepted instead of rejected. I always thought that if I didn't have a lot of friends that I wasn't loved. Of course I knew my family loved me but that wasn't enough for me. I had two children by the time I was 19 years old and was already heavy into drugs. I left my children when my youngest was about 6 months old. I disappeared for about 4 years on and off. I tried programs, been in and out of jail but nothing seemed to work. I was to the point where I was stealing and prostituting to get what I thought I needed. What I really needed was the love of God in my life. I finally received that love when I wrote I poem to God "I'm so lost and confused, so used and abused, I'm out on these streets Lord what do I do? I get down on my knees and I ask the Lord Please, will you ever forgive me?” Shortly after I went o jail and I met God, I had a full-blown experience with Him and from then on I have been allowing God to do a great work within me, to change me from the inside out. Now thanks to the Vision God gave to Pastor Gaspar Anastasi and the New Life Dream Centers, I am a new creation in Christ.

I used to be a drug addict. I was homeless, slept on the streets, ate out of garbage cans, and shot heroin and cocaine for nearly 10years straight. I gave my life to the Lord, and had an amazing experience. A pastor prayed for me, and I fell on the ground coughing and gagging and choking. He prayed for my deliverance from drugs and alcohol, in, Jesus' Name! The Holy Spirit came over my body, and after it was over, the obsession to use and the power it had over my mind was lifted. I no longer get nervous in my stomach, or have the obsession to use, and I owe it all to the Lord Jesus Christ, who set me free. He is truly my Rock, my Sheild, and my Deliverer! Amen.
