Cory has been coming to the Overcomers meetings at Union Gospel Mission for several years now. He started coming because he had been struggling with an addiction to cocaine and other drugs for years. He has been struggling with low self-esteem for most of his life and felt that drugs and alcohol as well as going from one girl to the next was the best way to combat that struggle. But he soon found that he had an even bigger problem when he became addicted, especially to the drugs. His life soon fell apart and he became a very angry young man.
One day he came to Union Gospel Mission for chapel and a meal, where heard the gospel message. By God’s grace the Holy Spirit allowed him to finally understand the gospel message with his heart and not just his mind. He started going to church and more chapel services at UGM. He heard about the Overcomers meetings for those who want to overcome their addictions through the power of the gospel. Soon thereafter, he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior and turned his back on the drugs and wild lifestyle. Today, Cory still comes to the Overcomers meetings at UGM and he is still focused on living for Christ. May the Lord continue to give Cory peace along with many others who come to UGM for the glory of Christ!
