“I’ve always known that God is real but the truth is: I’m just an extremely hard-headed person who just wanted to live life my own way. I’ve been really rebellious, I don’t like anyone telling me what to do. I’ve gotten into a lot of trouble to say the least. Drug addiction really messed up my mind, my body and my soul. It wasn’t until I cried out to God in my darkest hour with a sincere heart and asked him to help me. He heard those cries and opened up a door for me to come here to Savannah MBTC. From asking Jesus to come into my life, to be my Lord and Savior; He’s given me a new spirit, He’s softening my heart and has been healing my mind. He is renewing my mind with the word and I thank God for this place.”

“For years of my life I’ve spent it in the grips of active addiction. I grew up in church and I knew it wasn’t the right way to live but as a teenager and on into my twenties I just wanted to do what all the other guys were doing and party. It took a toll on my whole life. I became completely enslaved to drugs and alcohol and that lasted for many years. I hurt my family, the people that I loved the most and did things that I never thought I’d do. When I was 40 years old I heard about Savannah MBTC through my family who were affiliated with the ministry. I’m learning that God loves me and he forgives me and I’m trying to find out what my calling is. I’m grateful for my family and the staff here and everyone who’s helped me get to this point.”

your new life awaits

“As a teenager I ran with the wild crowd. I started smoking marijuana at 13 years old and then every other drug came rapidly. When I was 16 years old my boyfriend died from a heroin overdose. That crippled me and I numbed the pain with drugs, not caring about anything or anyone. Right after graduating high school I left that small town for Philadelphia. Over the years I have always had an addiction to some drug. I always thought that is just how my life was going to be and how it would end. Meth was the end of me. It is the drug that finally made me know that I was at the bottom. I knew I needed help and that something had to change. I had a friend who graduated from the mission in New Jersey. He helped me find Savannah MBTC. I walked into the doors four months ago with no religious background, not knowing what or if I believed anything. I broke down with emotions when I realized God loves me and forgives me. I am not a recovering drug addict but a new creation.” -Meg B. 2019
