I fell in love with Jesus in 1988.After that I moved to calif.with my boyfriend and his band.They were all into speed and I stayed clean for 3 yrs but out of pure anger and frustration I decided if you cant beat them join them.I was hooked the first time!I struggled with that drug for 19 years all the while my spirit cried out for God.Finally I could not take it any more and i began praying for God to break my addiction and bring me home and he brought me out of it, something that in my heart I thought could never happen.When I was in my addiction I lived in fear that Jesus would return in the middle of the night while I was high and I would come out of my locked bedroom to find my children gone with him and me and my husband left behind.I fell into alcohol for about 2 yrs after the meth but I prayed with all my heart for him to break that also.He lead my to a site called revelations of hell.I saw that my drunkeness could lead me to hell even though I believed in Jesus.Now I have been sober for 2 months and I am IN LOVE WITH JESUS AGAIN!!He still loves me after all the horrible debauchery I have commited.I feel so blessed and SAVED from hell.Thank you LORD JESUS!!!

When I left for the far country, I abandoned a beautiful wife and 4 beautiful kids. I stole from a friend and destroyed a career and am waiting for the Federal government to decide what I should reap for what I have sown. Thank God he showed up in a hotel room in Louisiana in a drunken haze through a Gideon Bible. God reminded me of a decision I had made earlier in life and that I was still His child and he still loved me..I didn't love me and many people hate me but God loves me...at times I don't understand how or why, but I know that I know He loves me! It has taken 40 years and a trail of destruction but one thing I now know is that He truly loves me and I want to love and serve him the rest of my life. Even though my story hasn't come to an end, I think I can help other prodigals realize that God still loves them, too. Living For Him one day at a time...Wade

My name is Michael and I wanted to share a little bit about what Jesus has done in my life. First off, I have been hooked on meth since i was fifteen years old. I was a junkie at sixteen years old. When I was 18, I moved to Brooksville Florida to get away from all the drugs and that life style and that's where I first heard of Steve Hill. I got saved at the revival in Brownsville and was on top of the world. I back to my hometown, thinking I could share my new life style with my family and old friends, but before long, I fell back in my old ways, only much worse. Several years later I began to cook meth and sell it.
My life was mirroring my dad's life. He and I began doing drugs and cooking meth together when I was about twenty. I am now 31. When I could feel God convecting me, I would remember how Steve Hill just said the name, "Jesus. Jesus. Jesus." and i would call that name like he said and it saved me thousands of times i was fed up with my life style going in and out of treatment centers only to fall back in the same things . got shot twice had to have a plate put in my arm got sent to prison for 2 years and still was doing the same stuff then one night i was high up on that stuff and god convected me i felt so nasty i wanted to come down from the high so i got in the bath tub and as i was in the tub something in side me said "Father God i ask you to take this water and tern it into your holy water to cleanse me from all this filth and wash me with your blood. Take the drugs out of me..." My life has been changed from that day on now i have now relocated to Austin TX and me and my dad came to heartland one Sunday and god has set us both free i now am free from smoking two packs of cigarettes a day. The power of the Holy Spirit is so wonderful and i thank God for his forgiveness and glory. Thank you, Jesus.

I've been very far away from God and this evening I found Him again. As I read your letter to prodigals, I thought, "he is speaking about me." I read the story and my heart is now so very happy. I lost God, but He didn't lose me.

I used to be in the will of God. Now I'm back out in the world. My life has not been the same. I miss God so much. I fear of going to hell everyday. Please pray for my soul. I say this with tears. I feel I can't get back.
