    in Prayer

    Your Host, Minister Rebecca Desormeaux, co-host Will Simmons, each week we will have a guest to call in and share their testimony, or story about their recovery, or a service provider to talk about their services and resources available for recovering addicts and alcoholics. We believe people are recovering from a lot of tings, Life comes at us hard and fast, and for many self medicating has been a coping mechanisim. We offer a spiritual alternative, because addiction is a spiritual disease, and it must be addressed as well as the emotional and physical wholeness! Jesus came to set the captives free, He wants you/us to be healed, delivered and set free.
