Deliverance and Persecution

I am a latino. 40 years of age living in Carlisle PA. I am a testimony of salvation and deliverance from drug and alcohol addiction as well as criminal living. I began using drugs at the age of 11. By the time I was 18-20 I had graduated from the lesser abuses of pot and alcohol and nicotine to the harder drugs of crack and heroin. I initially maintained my habit by selling drugs on the street. But as my addiction progressed I began to “burn” customers on the street and ultimately began to steal to support my lifestyle of drug addiction. The criminal aspect of my addiction led to incarceration in county prison and state prison. Mental health issues arose. All these I defeated by Christ Jesus. Now I combat daily efforts by the people of Carlisle to stop my work for Christ. Jesus will see me thru that as well.
