I've experienced a lot of loss and pain in life and overt sin became my escape. I used my sin to run away from the reality of my broken relationships, but every time it created more problems than it solved. By the time I got to college I had nothing to put my hope in. My sin had destroyed everything in my path and everything I put my hope had failed me.
That is when God used the ministry of DiscipleMakers powerfully in my life. God took me to the lowest point and stripped me of anything I put my hope in. Only then was I ready to hear the gospel and accept Jesus as my savior. I learned then that hope in God is infinitely more valuable than anything this world has to offer. Now I'm convinced that there is no better way to spend the rest of my life than making the hope of Jesus known to all people!
