Addictions Gone, Marriage Restored, Now Running Successful Business

Pastor Joseph Prince, 6 years ago, my life was a disaster. I was forced to divorce my wife and to break up with my family and friends. I was at the lowest point in my life. I had a lot of financial debts, and I was addicted to pornography and smoking. I was completely alone without my family and friends. There were many days where I didn’t have anything to eat in the evening because I had no money.

I grew up in a Christian home and attended a religious church regularly but I didn’t know about the grace of God and who I am in Christ. Then, an old friend sent me a link to one of your videos on YouTube.

That was the first time I saw Jesus as my loving Savior. I felt so much love from Him that I cried all the time. Even my circumstances didn’t change, I kept on hearing your messages. I listened every day and sometimes for hours. Since then, I began to see that everything is about Jesus and not about me. My life began to improve and bore fruits.

My ex-wife and I fell in love again and we remarried. Believing that Jesus paid for all my sins led me to believe that He also paid for all my debts. Today, I am completely debt-free. I lost the desire to watch pornography and have been free from it for 5 years now. Even my smoking addiction has stopped.

Today I am happily married, and we have 2 wonderful kids. We run a successful business and this year, we bought our own house in a beautiful place from where we can see the Swiss mountains.

Since we have been touched so much by the grace of God, our hearts’ desire is for others to experience that also. We started our own grace church in Bern because we didn’t find a church that preaches the message of grace radically.

We want to say THANK YOU! Your ministry has definitely saved our lives, and we are looking forward to welcoming you once again in Switzerland where you hear the Lord to preach the message of grace.
