I used to be a believer many years ago. Then I suddenly became very sick and went through a challenging time due to my divorce. For many years, I was very lonely and felt rejected by the people around me, including my closest friends. I was struggling a long time with severe depression. Several years passed and I remained distanced from God, even though I knew down deep in my heart that only he could help me in my misery. 

A few months ago, a friend told me about the TTB (Thru the Bible) program, and I decided to listen to it. I enjoyed listening to the program and started feeling how my faith was growing and being revived. I then decided to go to church again. Since then I have left my former life of suffering and unhappiness, and God has given me a purpose in life. Slowly but surely my emotional wounds are being mended and healed. I am still in the very beginning of my Christian walk, but I really enjoy the encouraging and comforting words I receive from the TTB programs.

I have also had the opportunity to share about my faith with my friends here at the retirement home, and we started listening to your programs together. Praise the Lord!

God bless you all!
