During his days as a heavy drinker, George got into a fight in a bar and killed a man. He was sentenced to ten years behind bars. Meanwhile, his wife not only raised their children but also found new life in Jesus. George heard of it while in prison and decided that when he got out, he would kill his wife for her conversion. But she invited him to go with her to a FamilyLife marriage conference.
“I went with bad intentions,” said George. “I wanted revenge on those who had influenced my wife. But as I listened to the messages, I realized that God was speaking to me personally. At the end of the conference, I went to the FamilyLife leaders and asked them for help. I needed to know how to ask my wife for forgiveness and how to become a follower of Jesus. I began to go to church and to follow Jesus daily. My life is changed now. I’m no longer under the influence of alcohol, but of Jesus.”
