Call in to speak with the host
The NNIA presents Recovey Radio Fresno with Louis Angel.
This weeks guest speaker is Johnny Saldate from Fresno California. Johnny has a wonderful, powerfull testimony of recovery that he will be sharing with you. Johnny wrote " My name is Johnny Saldate, I was born and raised in Fresno Ca. I grew up in a single parent house hold, my father was a alcoholic, that use to beat my mother. I grew up with many issues, no sense of self identity, or direction. My mother did the best she could under the circumstances, as children myself and my two siblings fell through the cracks in a dysfunctional environment. We started using alcohol and drugs at an early age and followed the foot-steps of my older sister into the lifestyle of gangs and addiction-which was a heavy cultural influence where I grew up. I developed a twisted/distorted way of thinking and embraced the life-style that accepted me. I did not learn how to read until I was incarcerated around the age of 20. At the age of 18 I found myself being arrested and charged with murder, and I was subsequently sent to prison with a life sentence of15 to life with the possibility of parole. I served 24 years and by the Grace of God I was set free. I was found suitable for parole, and paroled for prison in September of 2010. It has been a along journey, in which God has transformed my life, restored my family, renewed my mind, set me free from the things that held me in bondage such as mind-sets, and cultural belief-systems that I believe come from our separation from Jesus Christ. My story is your story, just a different path. I believe knowledge is power, especially if you add into the equation of Jesus Christ. I do not have all the answers, but I have a voice, and I believe in sharing my Hope, Strength, and Experience". Jeremiah 29:11
I look forward to our conversation... In His Service.
