Chapter 1


Everybody deserves a second chance.

On August 22, 1993, while still incarcerated, I received Christ and was baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost in a small little town near St Louis. I began confessing all my sins to the Lord, seeking His face, meditating on the Word, fasting and praying, listening to His voice, studying the Word, sharing the Word, teaching, and leading lost souls to Christ, to God be the glory.

He is still molding me for His purpose...

It does not matter WHAT you have done or are doing right now. You can make a choice to turn your life around. If God can give me a Second Chance, He will do the same for YOU
