This is the Every Man’s Battle testimony Steve read on the radio today:

I really didn’t know what to expect at the EMB workshop. I came here after hearing about the workshop on the radio one weekend while driving back home from being out of town. I was a mess struggling with a pornography addiction for over 20 years, multiple affairs, a gambling addiction all while huffing to numb my inner pain. The workshop for me was a last ditch effort to gain victory over my addictions. I felt that if this didn’t work, nothing would and I would never change knowing my eternal fate but I didn’t care. However, all that changed this weekend as God has spoken to me as I have never experienced before. It was as though the curtain had opened up and for the first time in my life, I knew the reason why I did what I did. It all started to make sense. The workshop was very humbling and pierced the very core of my soul. I could feel the overwhelming love and peace of God fill the void in my life which had been empty for as long as I can remember. I will NEVER be the same person. I know without a shadow of a doubt that God Almighty has not only forgiven me for my sins but has freed me from the chains of bondage I carried around my ankles. I understand that this is just the beginning and start to a new journey and that I will not face the enemy’s fiery darts alone. I know God has my back every step of the way along with the six other warriors I met this weekend whom I have bonded with. I love them all and will pray that they too will be successful in their journeys. Thank you New Life for this opportunity that I will also cherish as the weekend I surrendered all to God. And to God I give all the praise, honor, and glory because he is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords who never gave up on me. Amen. Thank You.– Joe

    I am impressed by the maturity of the 10-year old.

      I thought the first call was a practical joke.
