The Testimony of Junior Melanin
I got saved on July 13, 2014. Since the young age of 12, I was involved with drugs and alcohol. I have been in and out of rehab since high school and into my adult life. As an adult, I was in and out of jail. I got into the rap scene when I was 25, and became heavily involved in that lifestyle. It was a constant party!
On the night of my 30th birthday, we had a party that lasted all day and all night. I woke up on July 5, 2014, lost in the brush, covered in blood, and couldn’t move or stand up.
“I WAS TOLD BY DOCTORS, A FEW MORE HOURS THERE, MY ORGANS WOULD HAVE BEGUN SHUTTING DOWN”
I called 911, they traced my call and were able to find me. I had fallen off of an overpass near my house. I spent a week at the Oregon Health & Science University Hospital. I left the hospital on a Thursday with a walker and was told to use that for the next few months.
That Sunday, I convinced myself I needed to get to church.
I went and in that service, I accepted Jesus as my Savior. But then… the Pastor asked to pray for me. I strolled up with my walker to the front of the church. The Pastor and the church started praying for me. The pastor helped me stand up, moved the walker, and said “walk.” I hesitated, but I took a few steps, and to my amazement, all the pain was GONE.
“IN THE SAME PRAYER, I WAS COMPLETELY DELIVERED FROM DRUGS AND ALCOHOL”
That was 4 years ago and Jesus is still changing my life every day.
