Bill and George welcome Henry Hall, who has a wonderful story about his recovery.

Henry discusses how he started drinking alcohol as early as six years old. He was told that a man that works hard deserves a drink. When he was 10 years old he got a pistol, and he would carry it to school. Henry states,“It had a lot of power!” In junior high he started smoking marijuana. When he got into high school, he got injured from football and started using cocaine and other drugs. He did several criminal things, including using a weapon to try and steal money. He says the police arrived in time to save him and the person he intended stealing from.

Henry says that even during this time he would go to church, but would wait for church to get out so he could run with hoodlums. He was angry at God, asking, ’Why did I get hurt?’, because he believed he would have made it to the pros in football. He faced judges, went to prison and learned lessons God was trying to teach him for so many years.
