Recovering from drug addiction in Buffalo

I met a man at Kingdom Bound and he told me his story– and I am sure it’s an all too familiar story to many of you. To sum it up, he felt hopeless and he was a junky, shooting up heroin, drinking ’til he didn’t know where he was, and all that kind of stuff it’s best to avoid in life. He could have died, and should have died from all the abuse he put his body and mind through.

But you know what? God rescued him. And with the help of “Teen Challenge,” not only has he been off drugs, clean and sober for years now– he’s also working in the Buffalo area helping others come to Christ and abandon the drug lifestyle. That’s what Teen Challenge does– it equips addicts with new thinking, new beginnings, new skills, new hope and new life. Lord knows there are a lot of people who could use Teen Challenge’s help around Buffalo-Niagara Falls.

With that in mind, if you’re someone who has money and you want to see that money go to good use, call 716-855-0602 by Sept. 10th to reserve your seat for the Teen Challenge of Western New York Annual Fall Banquet at Lucarelli’s Banquet Facility, 1830 Abbott Rd., in Lackawanna, near the Basilica and Botanical Gardens. Robert Stearns will be the guest speaker. The event takes place Sept. 17th at 6pm. Reserve your seat(s) today!
