My Dear friend Michael Mednick,
In regards to Michael and his AMAZING abilities with The Broken, Lost and Addicted, as well as his Faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Mike is a true Fisher of Men, opening up his life, time, family and even his home for those in need.
I was blessed to meet “Big Mike” March 4, 2009, as my life was spiralling out of control, hooked on prescription medicine, depressed and suicidal. I crawled into a Narcotics Anonymous meeting at the Alano Club in Costa Mesa. As Mike told me, I looked ?deformed?, bloated, hunched over, eyes that looked like ?Road maps to China? ?
If you know him, he is quite large in stature, almost menacing. 6′ 4″, tattoos, probably 275 Lbs. Beyond that however, he is a Gentle Giant with a passion and determination to put others before himself. I had heard Big Mike speak that day and immediately gravitated towards him, plus I did not feel safe being around a bunch of loser, drug addict felons ? (the proverbial spear)
When I approached him, I asked him if he could help me. He replied, “God can”!!
From that day, we embarked on a journey and have been BEST friends ever since. He saved my life. A month later, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, and got Baptized a year later. To this day, I work ?The Program?, stay accountable and speak with ?Big Mike? every day.
Thanks to my relationship with Jesus Christ and the Serendipitous and Devine appointment meeting Michael, my life has forever changed and I know my name is written in ?The Book of Life?.
I look forward to seeing you all in HIS Kingdom, with no more suffering, pain or sorrow. Where the lost, broken and addicted who once were lost, are now found!!!
