Right down the road Chris Elrod is leading Compass Point Church in Lakeland, FL.
The other day he posted this great story about the win, and I lifted it from his blog to share here:
Pete has smoked since he was teenager.
Pete struggled most of his life with alcohol.
Pete used to shoot people when he’d get angry.
Pete spent 15 years behind bars.
Pete has cancer…a bunch of cancer.
Pete has been given only a few months to live.
Pete has a tattoo on his leg that says “Hell Bound”.
Pete won’t be going there.
Pete came to know Jesus two weeks ago.
Pete was baptized today.Posted February 26, 2008
