I was drowning in depression Before I knew God, I drowned in dark depression, deceit, and lived in fear. Sin and suicidal thoughts controlled me, and I had no escape.

FROM ACORN TO OAK TREE | MISSIONARY LIFE Last year Jesus gave me a vision. In it I was in a packed van, full of friend's voices when I suddenly heard no more noise, and saw nothing but a wide-open field. In the middle stood an oak tree that was magnificent, massive, strong!
