It's an honor and blessing to be able to partake in the MN Fishing Challenge again this year to raise awareness and money for MN Adult and Teen Challenge. MNATC does such an amazing job of providing Hope and Love to those that have lost both because of addiction. I've witnessed, first hand, the Restoration of Hope, Love & Redemption - IE Recovery through Jesus Christ - in the men I've been blessed to come along side.
I'm really excited to have the opportunity to partner up with Tony Proulx this year. God has put each of us in each others path and I'm excited to join Tony in his Walk. Here's just a bit of his story...
“I started my alcohol and drug experimenting around age 13 and had a heavy drug addiction by age 21. By age 26 I had been through 2 treatment programs and a short time of sobriety. I traded my drug addiction for alcoholism thinking that since alcohol is legal and socially acceptable, as long as I wasn’t getting into trouble with the law and remained remained an upstanding citizen, I didn’t have a problem.
There was a true happiness missing in my life that I tried filling with alcohol, money, relationships, with women and worldly possessions. None of these seemed to fill this void. I was tired of just living life with no sense of direction or purpose. After being in MN Adult and Teen Challenge for 5 months, I have found the pieces missing in my life Which is a relationship with Jesus Christ and His word. I no longer let my past define who I am, but who God says I am through the healing power of Jesus.
I have made a lot of decisions in my 36 years. Entering this program has led to the best one yet!"
