Testimony from Brianna Williams

I grew up with a good family. We were very close. I graduated high school a year and a half early, top of my class. I moved out at the age of 17 and got my own apartment. I still made childish decisions though. One day someone from school asked me if I wanted to get high, I had never done drugs before, so I tried it first, and then ask what it was. It was Meth. One question I asked 4 seconds too late, changed the rest of my life. I got into an abusive relationship with a guy who beat me up and sold me for drugs. He messed me up bad over the next year. I lost everything and was living out of my car, living for my next high; robbing everyone.He got arrested for domestic violence on me and I started making drugs on my own. With him not being around anymore, I continued to get worse. I became addicted to the needle and the money and I didn't care who I hurt. My family, I hardly talked to anymore because they couldn't stand to see me kill myself. I got arrested for my first time at 19 years old for manufacturing and delivering. I got released after a month and put on State Probation until my next Court date. I was rearrested the night before Court with more felonies and more manufacturing. The Court system told me I used up my last chance. I was about to be locked up for years. A miracle happened in my case and I was sent to Sonrise Mission Bible Training Center. I didn't even know Who God was. I have been here for 3 months and my parents have both given their lives to Christ after seeing the impact He's had in mine. I realized I was trying to fill an empty void with drugs, a void only Jesus could fill. I will be forever thankful to Sonrise Mission. They saved my life. And I will never lose sight of my newfound Love, Jesus Christ!
