My name is Rebekah Harris. I am 28 years old and the mother of an 8 year old son. I was raised in Erwin,TN and my father was a pastor. Even though I was raised in a Christian home my life of sin started very young. I started experimenting with drugs and alcohol at the age of 9. By the time I was a teenager I was deep into sin and had already tried just about everything this world had to offer. Nothing I tried satisfied the emptiness and pain in my life. I went to jail for the first time when I was 16. When I was 17 I had convinced myself God did not exsist. From the time I was 16 to 23 I had been in and out of jail over 30 times,rehabs 11 times and had been admitted to the hospital 4 times because of overdose. My life was a wreck and I thought there was no hope for me. I was so miserable and just wanted to die but people everywhere were praying for me. On March 19th 2004 those prayers were answered. I got down on my knees on a Friday night at a revival and asked God to come into my heart and save me. For the first time in my life I felt like I had hope. Now I just want to do something for God and be used by Him. God started calling me to the jail and prison ministry and on July 19th 2007 I surrendered to His calling. I never dreamed that God could or actually would use someone like me. I have had the privilege of seeing 54 professions of faith through the jail ministry. God is just so awesome. I have also had the privilege of going to Africa and Guatemala and sharing the gospel to thousands. God has also taken my life of sin and those things the devil meant for evil and turned it around and now uses it for His glory. I love going into churches and the jail and talking and dealing with teenagers, getting to share my testimony and how God changed my life. My number one goal no matter where I go and where God opens a door is to see people come to the saving knowledge of Christ and let everyone everywhere know that there is always hope.
