Hey my name is Cindy. The Redeem team came and got me when I called the hotline number knowing that if I didn’t get some help I was going to relapse. They took me in and kept me safe, sang holy spirit filled songs over me, and got me into treatment. Even though I fell a few times they never gave up on me and were always there for me to share the gospel and show me Jesus. Today I am free from addiction, have a home and a husband, and work at Take the City! I thank God for Redeem every day!
My first encounter with Take the City was going to Wilson Apartments in Columbus GA. We were met by a man from that neighborhood who prayed with us before we began the outreach. We set up an area for the kids to play and others went door to door witnessing and praying for people. It truly was a humbling experience. Another time I got to pray at an abortion clinic which was another humbling experience. The worship services the night before are always dynamic and spirit led. However I will conclude with the best part for me was being an eight week participant of Take the City boot camp. All of the leaders were simply AWESOME and I learned so much during those eight weeks. I thank God for all these wonderful opportunities!
