Joe tells his story of how he killed a teenage girl because of drunk driving. Joe received Jesus as his Lord and Savior while in prison. Jesus has radically transformed Joe’s life over time.
Joe’s out-of-control alcohol addiction led to a car accident and the death of a young woman called Amy. Joe was arrested for second-degree murder. Days after Amy’s death, a prison minister shared with Joe about Jesus and the gospel, that Jesus died for his sins. He was stunned to hear that God still loved him and could show him mercy. Joe repented and asked God for forgiveness for killing Amy. God started changing Joe’s thinking and Joe’s life. Once released from prison, God took Joe and Amy’s family on a miraculous journey of forgiveness and reconciliation. Joe now works for a prison ministry.
