    We overcome by the word of our testimony;Scripture Revelation 12:11

    Like some people, I was raised in a broken family of five children and I grew up very insecure, wanting parental
    discipline that I never got. So I pretty much was a loner and did what I wanted to do. I grew up out of peer pressure.
    I ended up on drugs and alcohol. The heavy drugs started out with heroin, acid, speed, reefer and anything that
    was popular, I tried it. As the years passed on, it led to shooting cocaine, which is where my brother, Greg comes
    into the picture. He would come to my room on the weekends and ask me to let him shoot up with me . At first
    first I would not let him shoot up with me because I knew how bad it was but he was very persistent. I finally let
    him and it was like creating a monster. From that time on ,we never had any respect for each other. We only
    wanted each other for what we could get. When shooting up was no longer popular we started smoking crack.
    That was the pits which led totally downhill until I couldn't take eating out of garbage cans any more; stealing
    selling drugs, picking up cans to sell, and any kind of wrong to get money to buy crack. So the way my blessing came
    was I used to go to jail a lot. every time I went I would read the bible and when I got out I would go right back to the streets. the last time I went to jail ,I went to church. For the first time in my life, by the grace of God, I wanted
    some answers. There were people giving their testimonies and I saw for the first time in their eyes the light of Christ.
    I wanted what they had because it was something I had never experienced. On that same night I went into the
    TV room in our dorm and the SPIRIT SAID TO ME, GET UP AND GO INTO YOUR CELL". So I climbed up into my
    bunk. I was in a trance as I went through the motions. I buried my head in the pillow and prayed, saying
    what the SPIRIT told me to say; GOD, take control of my life. I can't do it myself. Immediately I felt a heaviness
    being removed from my shoulders and the peace of GOD CAME OVER ME. I slept like a newborn baby for
    the first time in thirty years. I went straight to the bible because of my new life in Christ. There are so many thing I can say here but I'm going to get to the part about my brother. Greg, you see , the LORD put him in my path because after changing me and my knowing the goodness of the LORD , I could not help but think about my brother. So I would go looking for him to witness what the LORD had done for me, and when I found him, I would tell him about the LORD and pray for him constantly. One morning just as plain as day, the SPIRIT spoke to me saying, GO GET HIM. I took off to go get him--and not without a fight, THE devil tried to keep him. But you know the devil is no match for the LORD. That was my brother's time and the Lord changed him right there in the alley. He came home with me and hasn't ever looked back. ALL GLORY TO GOD, the FATHER AND OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. AMEN. WOODROW HAMMONDS [ GREGORY'S OLDEST BROTHER AND THE ONE THAT CAME TO GET HIM AFTER HIS FINAL TEMPTATION FROM THE DEVIL].
