Life Story of Erevaldo: A Troubled Childhood

Erevaldo Had a Hard Difficult, Take a Moment To Read About How He Overcome His Problems

“I was a troubled child. My brothers all thought my mother loved me more than any of them. So they beat me. up out of their jealousy. This was a constant thing, and it made me develop a paralyzing fear. I didn’t want to be alone, neither did I want to be with them. In my head, If they hated me then everyone hated me. I remember being a very confused child… confused, angry, rebellious, disobedient, and more. But above all these things, I remember always feeling very alone.

As a teen, I started going to different parties trying to feel like I wasn’t alone.

I tried drinking, partying, dancing even just cracking jokes here and there. But nothing I did nobody I followed around with could ever make me feel whole and happy. Then, I even tried turning to religion. But my mind could not get over the fact that in those places I went. They had Jesus Christ pinned to a Cross, it looked like He needed more help than me.

I attempted suicide three times, thinking I would finally be in peace if I just died already, but it wasn’t until I came to the Universal Church my cousin, that I experienced true peace.

The pastor prayed strongly over me that same day, and I felt a burden lift off my shoulders. I kept going to my Chains of Prayers and understood that Jesus Christ was no longer on the Cross, but that He was with me and wanted to give me His Holy Spirit, I became a new man. All those suicidal thoughts, depression, and addictions to alcohol simply vanished.

Today I dedicate my time to helping other younger adults who feel the way I felt. The bad rots of addictions, suicidal thoughts, and loneliness were cut off and replaced with the good roots that the power of God can give a person. If you are feeling down, depressed, or even suicidal, I invited you to come to this ministry and get the help you need, Just like I did!
