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

This was the first time in my life that I shared my “secret life” and the first time that I feel that I’m on my way to a “new life.” In the past, I have placed landmines in the pathway of everyone in my life and left them to pick up the pieces. Now, I have partners to help me . It’s not just me against my demons. It’s my “team” against my demons. This would never have happened without EMB. Thank you New Life for the tools that I can use to touch others. - Curtis

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

This EMB workshop has been powerfully effective. It is a great resource of spirit lead leaders/counselors who have been down the path of men like me struggling with sexual purity issues and boundaries.

This weekend I was blessed by being in a group of men who all have struggled with sexual sin. We prayed together, cried together, shared together, and have grown together. These men are now my brothers. We are all broken vessels. But now we are equipped with the glue to put us back together with God’s grace and the love and support of our spouses. We need prayers and patience. We must stop this downward spiral of sexual sin. By God’s mercy and forgiveness we can claim victory in this battle. - Carlos
