I had completely given up on life and hard to believe my goal was to commit suicide by shooting it out with the police whom I had hatred toward. My closest friend had just committed suicide. I was raised down in “The Hood”, South-Central LA. I never had a father that was there for me. I grew up in the concrete jungle, with the constant influence to bury my pain with drugs, gangs, violence, and crime. I found out about Hope or Homeless Youth and Pastor Clayton and I learned to release all my pain to Jesus and a miraculous healing came to my life. I graduated from his year-long discipleship program and married a Pastor’s daughter. I’m now a family man and dedicated to Jesus, my wife and children.
