Brent Williams Transformation...
My name is Brent Williams and I am currently 32 years old. I hail from a community called Bridgetown. I grew up in the area and have been living her all my life. I don’t come out of a wealthy family or house but out of a very good home. I did not have everything but also lacked nothing so to speak. I have very good parents that always gave me their best.
I started drinking at the age of 13 years old and drank up to the age of 29 years old. (Drank for 16 years). I started using and experimenting with drugs at the age of 21 years old and used for 8 years, up to the age of 29 years old. When I started using and experimenting with drugs I got involved with gansterism and a notorious gang called the “Americans”. To support my drug habit I eventually started to sell drugs in my community and it did not matter to whom I sold (Old or young). When using the drugs (methamphetamine) it affected me mentally and I had terrible hallucinations .I always thought that the world was out to kill me. One evening I help my parent’s hostage with a long butcher’s knife threatening to kill them. That is when I know that I needed help.
My mom then brought me to the Impact Centre where I was counselled but most importantly introduced to Jesus Christ. That is where my journey began. I was counselled, mentored and disciple by Impact Direct. After that they saw it fit for me to go on various workshops and training. I eventually became part of the staff here and am one of the counsellors .I am also a Community Developer now and works and serve our community. This has been a very exiting journey thus far. Looking forward to what God is still going to do and my progress and development here at Impact Direct Ministries.
