Come hear Anthony “Shawn” Holmes share his Faith story.
He was a good basketball and football player, but he couldn’t stay out of trouble or in school. Eventually, cocaine became his drug of choice and despair his constant companion.
“I felt like dying numerous times,” he said. “I stared down the barrel of a gun and something just would not let me pull the trigger. I overdosed on drugs and that didn’t do it. I would drink like crazy and that wouldn’t do it.”
He was in an out of prison for a time and faced an extended stay on a drug charge when things finally changed.
First, he noticed the positive effect the jailhouse minister seemed to have on many inmates. One day he listened to and talked with the man but remained unconvinced until later that night when, he said, God personally paid him a visit.
“The Lord came and dealt with me and told me to repent to the Lord and to apologize to the minister because the Lord had sent him to help me,” Holmes said. “That is the first time that someone stood up in my face and told me whatever god I had wasn’t working, and that I needed to get the real God.”
