Joe Shares testimony of salvation from 20 years drug addiction on the Evangelical Alliance's new website, the Great Commission.

On the he Evangelical Alliance’s new website, the Great Commission, Joe shares his story of a life of drug addiction which changed when he prayed to God for help.

He says: “Aged about 19 I got involved in substance misuse, and that was my life for about 20 years. In the end I felt like I was a failure, addicted to failure, I was just desperate. I just wanted out of my situation.”

He continues: “I just cried out to God, begging him for help; ‘If there is a God I need you now’. Within several weeks of calling out to God and God answering my prayers, placing people in my life who were there to support and encourage me, I found I’d detoxed myself within a few weeks, gained the strength quite quickly that I’d never had before.”

Joe describes the changes in his life and how he is now evangelising himself. “I thought I was unemployable and I now work within the detox centre that I went through myself,” he says. “I’m there sharing my experience, and I share my faith and show that it was a big impact on how I became abstinent from drugs. I’m in the process of becoming a member of an Eden team [of urban missionaries] and I’m running a men’s group from my flat and people are coming and getting saved.”
