Hello brothers and sisters in Christ. My name is Jessica and I am 28 years old. I know that the Lord Jesus truly has a plan for me and he has always been with me from the beginning. He preserved my life when I was just a baby from getting killed by a bullet. I received Him as my Lord and Savior when I was a child, about 7 years of age. I grew up in a Christian Household, so I was pretty sheltered. At about the age of 13 or 14 I became rebellious, sneaking out. I was a very troubled teen and got mixed up in the wrong crowd. I started using drugs to cope and became a heavy alcoholic. The intensity of the drugs progressed over the years; I was a wretched person with all kinds of inner turmoil. I made a lot of really poor choices in my life, but the best decision I could ever have made was accepting Christ! I stand here as a brand new woman, a woman of faith. Jesus Christ has delivered me from a variety of addictions, alcoholism, homosexuality, and the physical and mental abuse that was a result of my bad relationships. I am a rape survivor, an over-comer of many different issues, circumstances and situations with the Lord’s help. I also spent many years in and out of homelessness. In 2010 I went to the ranch for the first time. I spent a long time going around the mountain, just like the Israelites. This time around I have fully submitted myself to Jesus and my whole heart belongs to Him. I am excited to continue faithfully on this life-long journey to heaven with the guidance of the Holy Spirit every step of the way. I pray this testimony has encouraged you to take a leap of faith as well. May God bless all of you and your loved ones.
