Alcoholism did not have the Last Word

By Anthony Huerta on 20 Sep 2017

My name is Anthony Huerta and I am a YWAM Missionary.
 
I grew up blessed in Lubbock, Texas. Looking back I see God's hand all around my upbringing. Sure, my parents have had their issues; definitely, there were some questionable role-models along the way; absolutely, my extended family liked to have a good time, but overall, the issues were no different than nearly all American families.

How I got from south texas to serbia

By Tyler Tom on 4 Aug 2017

In March of 2009, a small team from Youth with a Mission Tyler, Texas, called Take Action, visited my local church. At the end of their program, I found myself at the front of the sanctuary, on my knees, with someone praying out loud and over me. I can still remember hearing them praying, “God I pray that this young man would have the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You; that you would open the eyes of his understanding, and that he many know what is the hope of His Calling, of the riches of glory in Christ Jesus.”
