A Compulsive Gambler Encounters Jesus

I was addicted to gambling, Mahjong, soccer- and jockey-betting, since I was fourteen. My financial condition was in a devastating state due to gambling, and I continued to overdraft my credit card in order to cover my living expenses. I even stopped paying the mortgage without my wife's knowledge. Until last year in May, the bank notified us that our house will be auction off very soon. My wife was shocked after knowing this. I felt really guilty and I even thought of commiting suicide that my wife could receive insurance benefits. At the time when I felt that there was no more hope, I recalled Simon, my previous gambling friend. A year ago, he invited me to his baptism to hear his testimony. After Simon accepted Jesus, he got rid of the gambling addiction and his life was completely turned over. My wife and I started to attend Sunday services afterwards. As my pastor, my brothers and sisters, as well as myself prayed eagerly, the bank had granted us the application which allowed us to lower our mortgage payments very soon. Praise God! He has ridded me of the addiction and has restored my relationship with my wife!
