Bill came from a life of drug addition and chaos. Christ has changed his life drastically. He is now a manager and has three grandchildren he shares the love of Jesus with.

February – May 2009

Old Life

Bill’s life before the House of Refuge was in total chaos, he was addicted to drugs and tangled up in all that came with it. He came to us trying to stay out of jail but God had other plans.

“The best thing that happened while I was at HRS was my baptism in the horse trough where I decided to show who I really was in Christ.”

“I now have eternal life with Christ, where before I had no hope. I found God at the House of Refuge Sunnyslope.”

New Life

Bill now lives in Camp Verde and attends Parkside Church. He has been the manager of Cold Stone Creamery, in Sedona, for 9 years. His family has faith in him again and his relationships are stronger “because of Christ who lives in and through me.” Bill has been blessed to share Jesus with his three grandchildren.

Favorite Verse

"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."

– Galatians 2:20
