Brandon’s Testimony

My name is Brandon Baldwin im 28 years old. Born in Whittier C.A moved to KY when i was young. My parents divorced not long after moveing to ky. I was alway i trouble in and out of school. My grandmother moved to ky to help with me and my sister why mom worked. We were poor growing up but wasnt all thay bad. My mom married a man in prison this would be the man the ened up shaping my mind to what a man should be like. I started to use priscription pills at a young age anything and everything. Then eventally i moved on to harder things. Ive been on out of rehabs and jail since i was 16. I also learned at a young age how to manipulate and this is how i would survive and get what I wanted when ever. Life goes on still using occasionally selling. Eventally at the age of 20 i went to fos for this first time but for all the wrong reasons. Got offeneded by something someone said and left. Got a decent job as a manger of mcdonalds for me this was a big acomplishment. Started to drink and eventually use again. This went on for about 4 more years. Eventually losing my job i started to hustle by any means. I was never a drug dealer I was jist a junky with a plug. Lost my home was homeless trying to sell drugs. January 7 2015, is when my life changed and I got busted for trafficking meth. I was in jail for like 2 weeks or so and got called out of the cell to talk to fos. I didn’t understand how but they asked if i wanted to come back and i agreed on it and at court they relsed me to fos. I didnt know what it was at the time but this time something was diffrent see I was at what they called rock bottom and Christ came into my life and changed me. I got a job while I was at fos that I still hold today. When a graduated i worked there also I met the most amazing woman I have ever met. I used to tell people that i would never get married but I married her and two beautiful children came along with her. I have a home church in which me and wife are about to start our own recovery meeting in. And the greatest family and friends i could ever ask for. Friends of sinners changed my life threw God.

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:26
