Many addicts who are delivered at Upward Bound Ministries, are wittiness's and are willing to share their testimony of deliverance from their addiction by God through the Lord Jesus Christ. It is the testimony that we live before humanity that has the greatest impact on people's lives. Because they too can testify that you once drank, partied, were addicted to drugs and lived a sinful life style, just as many of them still do today. Now, you are not with them because you have been delivered, and they are now a witness to that truth. Not only can they see it, they know that something supernatural had to have happened to you because you were no different than they were.
"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God." 2 Timothy 1:7-8
