Our guest speaker tonight was Andrea Battles joined by his wife, Chanel. They were just married two weeks ago. Our son, London, and Andrea are friends. He recently moved to Alabama and London knew his testimony would be encouraging to the men.
Andrea started using marijuana as a teenager. At the same time he was introduced to pornography by finding a Playboy magazine at his home. His life spiraled down from that point. He also contracted diabetes at the age of 14.
After being married 13 years with two children, his extramarital affairs and cocaine addiction destroyed his home. Heavy into drugs, he allowed a two-month infection from an ulcer on his foot to cause the amputation of his leg.
He has rededicated his life to Jesus and is determined to take back what the devil has stolen and then some. He said he wants to take every person to heaven with him.
He admonished the men not to devalue themselves because God has a great plan for their lives and the devil does not want them to fulfill it. They must cling to Jesus and He will change their lives.
Testimonies like these encourage the men to follow Jesus all the way and never turn back.
