Joel: A New Creation

Joel MessinaQuote


Hello, my name is Joel and I am 27 years old.  I was born in New Braunfels, Texas, but lived mostly in Auburn, Alabama  and Houston, Texas.  I started using drugs when I was 16.  I was just trying to fit into the crowd.  In 2009 I was arrested for possession of a controlled substance in Alabama.  Since then, I have continually been in and out of county jail and rehabilitation centers.  Since I have been here at Adult and Teen Challenge of Texas, I have realized that I never truly let God take control of my life.  I have rededicated my life to Him and have been clean and sober since June 20, 2014.  I can honestly say that God has opened my eyes because of this ministry.
