My story begins on August 29th 2002, Like usual i dropped my wife of 23 years Larissa off at work and wake my best friend and employee Paul. He had recently come to stay with us after becoming homeless. I would later find out there was a spark between them when they first met. I had an contract with a customer to do some painting that Paul was driving me to. I arrived at the jobsite around 10:30 a.m.

I was not thinking clearly from the drinking and drugging I had done the night before. I remember fighting the evil voice in my head telling me to put a telescope that was in the home into my car. Against my better judgment I put it in my car. The owner returned home and asked me why the telescope was in my car. I was scared and didn’t wanna cause a scene or committ any violence to get away. I told my customer to call police and I waited for my nightmare to begin. I was orginally charged with a non-violent burgarly. I had plenty of money to bail our of jail but my wife and Paul cut the phone off’ and took all my money. I wanted to die! The two most important people in my life betrayed me. This pain and abandonment consumed me.

One day this younger guy showed me this thing called the Bible. That is when my outlook started to change. I started to suffer from absessed teeth while in jail. They were pulled with anti-biotics. The infection came upon me with great pain and a high fever. My left side of my face swell. My mouth swole shut to the point I couldn’t eat. I was starving and in severe pain. I cryed out to the nursing staff and was told our friends telescope. O Yeah…. My victim was the Director of Victims Advocates. After about 5 days I was losing strength and the pain was driving me insane.

Finally after 7 days I was taken back to the Dentist. He forced a rubber wedge into my mouth and scraped into the infected socket. Tears flowed down the corners of my eyes and I was shackled like a dog. The Dentist then then filled the socket with medicated gause instructed me to take it out later with toothpick. I guess he forgot I was in jail and no written order was given to the jail.  This caused a disease in my head called Cellulitis. I thought the pain and stretching of my head would explode.  After 12 days I was taking to the ER. The jail then offered me a PR bond in hopes that I would not bring suit against them. Less than 2 days later on a cold December night at 2 a.m. I turned on my cell light and asked a guard for pain medicine in which I was told the nurse forgot to leave for me.

The guard told me to turn my light off and he left. I got up and placed my Bible back on the steel bunk turned my light out. As soon as I touched the Bible my cell became  bright with light that bathed me. The guard returned beacause he thought I disobeyed him. This light was sent from heaven. This divine light bathed my sick body and healed me completely, No more pain! God’s word is all I have had for over 10 years, no mail, visits or phonecalls.

If God comes to my aide through this testimony I will go to Prisons all over the world to give the testimony God gave me to His glory.  I don’t know what it would take besides a miracle for my charges to put back as non-violent . The state justifies a law that if a person has two or more priors they can make a non-violent crime into a most serious violent crime. In 1988 I plead to 5 non-violent burglarys. I broke into pinball machines to support my drug habit and was illegally sentenced. I was sentenced at one day and not separately. I am not a violent person. I did not kill or rape anyone but was gived 20 years and 1 year later my charge was changed to 1st degree burgarly and most seriously violent. May God touch you to help me and who knows maybe I’ll get some mail out of this for it has been a long long ten years. I will pray for each of you.

    Dear Brother,
    I have just today finished reading a book, “the Cross and the Switchblade” by David Wilkerson.
    It is about how Jesus inspired a simple pastor to go into the streets of New York to save teens from drug additction, prostitution and street gang involvement. I feel deeply that if the Lord loves such children and individuals to do such a miraculous feat HE surely loves YOU to do the same for you.
    Daily PROCLAIM the word. Take any verses and replace the person in it with “I” and “ME” . Call upon your personal comforter the Holy SPirit and Be certain of His presence in your life. We believe with our hearts what our eyes cannot see.
    Never give up hope. The Lord will use you in His own special way.
    I too am in prison in a different way for I am not allowed to fellowship with other saved Christians. Please do pray for me too.
    Your sister IN Christ

    I was really blessed to read your testimony of how the Lord came to you in your great need and completely healed you of all the ill effects from the tooth abscesses and so-called treatment, praise His Name! I will pray that God gives you favour and justice in your situation.

    Please feel free to have a look at my simple website and pass it on to others who are in need of healing. Please also remember me in your prayers, as I need a miracle healing of wisdom tooth/jaw trouble at the moment, am due for surgery but believing that Jesus can overrule for me as He did for you! Blessings from the UK.

    Powerful testimony. Yes, I believe in miracles. I know Jesus heals and answers prayers. Your post was in April of 2012. So, are you still in prison? I don’t know how you expect the brethren to help you get out of prison other than prayer. Fervent prayer, and obedience is the key. Pray in faith. There is a fine line between believing faith and overcoming faith. I do know one thing for sure, Jesus hasn’t forgotten you. Believe for your miracle. Please write back here. Grace and peace to you in Jesus Name
