Christian was only 9 years old when his father committed suicide. It was a tragic day for him because of how close he had been to his father. Christian battled depression and had dreams about his father encouraging him to kill himself. He decided to end his life, but things didn't go as planned. This eventually led Christian to Jesus, and his life was changed completely!
Christian suffered from depression just as his father did. He thought if he killed himself, he could finally reunite with his father. He attempted to end it all, but was found on the floor with his arm cut open instead. He taken to the hospital and God spared his life. When Christian was released, though, he was still unhappy that he was alive.

Christian's transformation is completely inspiring. The young boy who lost his way grew to accept Jesus as his Lord and Savior, and now has a relationship with God. more >>
