Spiritual Emphasis Week at Azle Men’s Campus

Azle men spiritual emphasis week.The Azle men’s campus held several amazing and anointed services this week during their spiritual emphasis week.  The Lord showed His presence in every chapel service in a powerful way as men came to the alters and surrendered their lives to God.  Several men prayed a prayer for salvation for the very first time. Some of these men started letting go of their addictive and troublesome pasts, as they allowed God to begin a deeper healing in their hearts.  As they prayed to God, they were also encouraging and praying for one another.  Many were finding a new found freedom in Christ.

The Lord is doing a mighty work in the lives of many of our Adult & Teen Challenge of Texas students.  We are thankful and blessed to know that the Lord is no respecter of persons.  He is a good God.  He loves every sinner, every addict, and every person on this earth.

“…Christ Jesus came into this world to save sinners.” I Timothy 1:15.

“God wants all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of truth.” I Timonthy 2:4

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”. John 3:16.

Britany: A New Creation

Britany&daughter2

Learning the greatest gift of all is life.

Hello, my name is Britany.  For eight years I was lost to booze, drugs, and bad love.  My entire family suffered from my choices, including my daughter.  I had a relatively good childhood, aside from being raised by a single mother who expected perfection.  I grew up without my dad, which added an extra layer of confusion to my pain.  I believed that love was something to be earned, not something that was freely given.  I thought love was nothing more than gaining attention.  I hid in my own little world, but couldn’t make the agonizing pain on the inside go away, so I started cutting myself.  I made idols out of many worldly things, hoping and longing for them to fill the void inside of me.

After a few overdoses, I finally hit rock bottom.  I had nowhere else to look but up. I turned my eyes to Jesus and came to Adult & Teen Challenge of Texas.  Even though I had cursed Him, and refused to believe He even existed, it was He who set me free.  Jesus transformed my heart, my desires, and my ambitions.  Before, I felt burdened and overwhelmed by being a mother.  Now, I recognize that God gave me the greatest gift of all…He gave me life.
