My name is Rachel. I am 29 years old. I graduated from Morehouse Women’s Challenge in March of 2015. Since then my life has never been better. You see, God used this program to set me free and make me His own.
At 27 years old, I found myself sitting in jail and addicted to IV meth. I had spent all of my 20’s wasting away on drugs. I was so hopeless. I didn’t know it at the time, but at that point I was spiritually dead. There was no life within me. The worse my addiction got, the less of a person I became. Nothing else mattered. I did things I’d never thought I’d do. I hurt the people that loved me. I was a prisoner of my addiction. The devil had me right where he wanted me. But God had a plan for my life and showed mercy on me.
February 8th 2014 was the day God intervened. I had cried out to Him, and even in my sin and darkness, He heard me and He rescued me. He set me down in jail for 3 weeks then took me gently by the hand and led me to MWC. Coming to this program was the best decision I ever made. I had a long road ahead of me, but freedom came one step at a time. It was there I encountered the Lord Jesus and became born again.
I graduated from the program after a year then stayed for a 6-month internship. I am so grateful for this program. If it wasn’t for this program, I don’t think I would have ever come to know the Lord so intimately. Today I am 2 ½ years sober. Most importantly, I now walk with my head held high. I have my dignity and self-respect back. My family trusts me again. I have a good job and my own place. I am beyond blessed in ways that I can’t even describe. I give all the glory to God. He used this program to change my life and I will be forever grateful.
God doesn’t discriminate and the devil doesn’t either. What God does for one, He will do for all. 1 Timothy 2:4 says that God desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. My life is a testimony to that. Thank you.
My name is Becky and I am 39 years old. I graduated from Morehouse Women's Challenge on January 5, 2017. I grew up in church doing what church goers do but one vital thing was missing and I found that while at the Challenge; a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I started doing drugs at 14 which led to a downward spiral of a life full of darkness. A bad marriage, and bad relationships; one after another. I have done many different stints in jail and all of the bad decisions landed me in MWC and nothing has ever been the same. Since I have graduated God gave me back everything that the devil stole from me, plus some! My children were both saved and I now have 2 awesome jobs, that I love! I have godly people in my life that encourage me daily. I am exactly where I am supposed to be and I am able to share the love of Jesus and His saving power with everybody that I encounter on a daily basis. God used Morehouse Women's Challenge to save my life and put me on the road to righteousness!
But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.
