Sunday, 6th: “My name is Bernard H…  I have served 18 months of a 3-year sentence for robbery. I met bottom at 56. God had to stop me before things got worse. Drugs, alcohol and sinful living have been a part of my life since I was 15 years old. As a child of mental, physical and spiritual abuse, I sought chemicals to deal with the molested child in me. My children of 4 different mothers have never been a part of my life. I doubt they or my siblings even know I am in here. Yes, I am alone, but not really. I have the LORD in my heart. The LORD has placed on my heart to someday go to the street and minister to those who are lost, as I was.”
