From Helpless Addict to Vessel of Usefulness: The Story of Howard Thompson's Transformation

His great, clear, definite affirmation is that God never loses sight of them that put their confidence in Him.
The Ole Jerry McAuley Mission was founded in 1912 to provide a place for chronic alcoholics and addicts who had spiritual experiences during incarceration to continue it outside of prison and not end up back at their old ways. However, in the book, The Dry Dock of a Thousand Wrecks by Philip Ilott Roberts, we see that the mission is undergoing a change, with the 'Evangelical Podium' taking root.
Nevertheless, the stories of the destitute alcoholics and addicts who make a quick recovery through surrendering to Christ Jesus are still remarkable. Howard Thompson is one of those stories. He was once a hopeless, fettered slave to his addiction. He tried every cure available to him, but nothing seemed to work until he discovered the transformative power of Jesus Christ.
Today, he is respected and loved by all who know him and is a magnificent vindication in a prophecy of greater things to come. Read more about Howard Thompson's journey to recovery and how prayer played an important role in his transformation. Listen to the episode now here on alcoholfree.com.
