Mark’s Testimony

My name is Mark.  I grew up in an alcoholic family.  I remember saying, “I will not drink, when I grow up.”  But, I did.  I struggled for several years with alcohol, but it got worse the last five years.   I lost a good job, my brother and my mother passed away.  I drank more, instead of working through the hurt feelings.  I got to the point where I had lost hope and just wanted to give up.  My mind was screwed up.  God was there because I didn’t want to live like this anymore.  I decided to call the Columbus Rescue Mission for help.  I am glad I did.  The staff has helped and taught me how much God loves me and that I am important in God’s kingdom. And the reason I have hope today is because of what Jesus did for me.  He died on the cross for me and you, and by believing in Him, I have eternal life.
