Allen Hanson Classic (Greed, Lying, Repentance) Growing up in a missionary family, Allen envied his friends who always seemed to have newer and better things than he did. Growing older he was determined to achieve happiness by becoming as wealthy as possible, even if it meant neglecting his wife and daughters. Eventually, his bending the rules landed him in prison for mail fraud and swindle. In prison he finally understands what true happiness is and dedicates his life to serving Christ. Once he's released, he continues to tell other prisoners that only Christ can free them from the chains of sin that keep them in bondage.
Ron Shultz Classic (Seeking Truth, Family Death, Air Force) Ron lived a lifetime of chasing after fools gold. Enticed by the glitter, disappointed by the result of promises broken. His search was for the meaning of life, the secrets of the universe. He joined the Air Force, got married and enrolled in Non-commissioned Officer Training where he met his friend Oliver who eventually led him to Christ.
3598 Phil Lacy Part 2 PG (Speech Impediment, Drugs, Pride, Divorce) Going from drug dealer to highly successful pillar of the community, Phil turned his life around with hard work and a talent for auctioneering estates and trusts, which is especially surprising given Phil's speech impediment growing up. But all his success leads to a prideful attitude that launches his downfall into drug use, womanizing, divorce and despair. Phil cries out to the Lord and embarks on a new direction in life. He turns his attention to open air evangelizing, where he now uses his healed speech disorder to hallow God's name to the world and show that sometimes our greatest ministry flows out of our brokenness.
3597 Phil Lacy Part 1 PG (Adoption, Rebellion, Drug Use) Even though he grew up in a Christian household, Phil found out at a young age that he was adopted, and it launched him into a world of rebellion. He fully embraced a life of drug use and drug dealing, even landing him in jail. While hitchhiking, he encounters a pastor that takes him through the steps of becoming a Christian. Phil follows along but his heart isn't in it. He still is sowing his oats, unwilling to give up his selfish lifestyle, when part 1 ends. Will he embrace a full committed faith? Listen and find out.
