I'll never forget how desperate and hopeless I felt on September 29, 2014. It felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders, and everything was my fault. My hands were too shaky to even hold a glass of water - everything just felt dark and meaningless. I began writing suicide letters that afternoon. It was over.
Something within me decided to give God one last chance. I fell to my knees right there beside my bed, weeping uncontrollable tears, and I asked God for a miracle. In that very moment, an indescribable peace filled my room, and I knew Jesus was there. I just knew it. September 29, 2014 is my sobriety date. I haven't looked back since. Jesus answered my cry, and He restored my soul.
In time, I grew hungry for the Word, and my heart began to experience overflowing joy. The Bible started making sense, and things began to shift in my life. Everything happened so fast, it felt like my only option was to share this story with the world. How could I possibly keep this miracle to myself?
Jesus is for real, and He wasn't kidding around. The Bible isn't just a book of suggestions - it's the key to everything. Jesus left us with a final commandment, and it isn't complicated. It's our responsibility to GO into all nations, sharing the Good News of Jesus. (Matthew 28:19-20).
That's what it's all about. It's about the transforming power of Jesus. It's about meeting people where they are - whether that's under a bridge or in a Bible Study. It's about getting out of our comfort zones, and BEING the love we talk about every Sunday. This is really, really good stuff, and the world is desperate for the healing Truth! Let's do this.
The Gospel Van is being used to travel the country distributing care packages, helping homeless people, raising addiction awareness, and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. All donations go toward purchasing care packages, homeless outreach, tanks of gas, food, and coffee. Thank you so much for being part of this crazy mission! -Zack Gudzan
