‘Then the word of God spread, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly’ Acts 6:7 NKJV
Chantell went through many traumatising experiences during her childhood; she didn’t know her father and after being physically and mentally hurt by her partner, she started working for a lap dancing club. “I was like, ‘Great, I can get money and at the same time get something that I crave the most - attention from men.” One night she happened to tune into UCB Radio: “I remember listening to these words about Jesus and how He died for me… I thought, ‘I want to know this Father. I want to know this God that wants to be a Father to the fatherless, because I haven’t got one. I want to know this God that’s saying I’m fearfully and wonderfully made because I don’t feel like I am.”
Watch Chantell’s video to hear how God changed her future. “He’s restoring everything that was taken from me and everything that was broken. God’s brought it all back together, and given me more now than I ever had before.”
We all go through difficult times, but our stories help us to learn more about who God is. It’s not about who you are, but whose you are!
God doesn’t use us because of us, but in spite of us. God has chosen to accomplish His purposes through ordinary people like us. Does the situation seem impossible for you? It’s not for God. Trust Him, stand on His promise: ‘I will be with you’, and move ahead!

Watch the below videos to hear how God uses people’s stories for his purpose:
‘Mike was a single dad after his marriage had left him quite broken but he “always knew that God had a plan’.
‘The Lord had said “Paul, it’s my plan, I just want you to be obedient” and it’s wonderful and it’s been transformational in my life…and I’m just going to keep listening.’
‘I remember thinking…‘I can’t control anything around me right now’…[But] going back to it I could see what He’d done…The whole way through I knew He was there.’
God had the purpose of my life into being a living testimony, a living demonstration of what work He can do. It’s made me stronger knowing that I have a purpose.’
