Advancement Testimony

A gentleman in the men's addiction recovery program shared his testimony as he advanced from phase 1 to phase 2.

I was born in Winnipeg to parents that where alcoholics.  My older brother and I were bounced from foster home to foster home.  The police took me and my brother ‎away to a residential school.  I will always remember that day.  Eventually they took me to a foster home where the father was an alcoholic.  I had to re-live that all over again.  One day my father and uncle thought they would have fun and they got me drunk when I was 9 years old.  I was stumbling all over and even passed out.  

I went through many treatment centres, as assigned by the courts. It was either treatment or jail, so I chose treatment.  But I never really worked on getting better, I only wanted to stay out of jail.  One day I was walking by UGM and saw another aboriginal man walking tall, and I could tell he was sober.  I asked him how he‎ had done it.  He told me to check out Union Gospel Mission.  I talked with the staff, went through detox and then came in to the program.

Something has happened to me here.  I have been touched by the Lord.  Just recently I was praying and this feeling went through me‎ and I knew that everything would be all right.  So I keep praying and praying.  I had lost my language, my youth, and my future.  Now I’m working on learning my language again, and trying to get though the pain from my past.  

Psalm 25:15-17 - My eyes are ever on the LORD, for only he will release my feet from the snare.  Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted.  Relieve the troubles of my heart and free me from my anguish.
