When Heroin Was the Only Thing That Mattered, Hope Shone Through. It Looked Like Jesus.
By Michael Harrell
In the summer of 2013, April Milligan lost her family, her secrets and her freedom. But what she got out of a door knocked down by the DEA was a door wide open for Jesus and a hope for restoration. Today, she’s free from the heroin addiction that took her, restored to her family and proclaiming a message to all addicts, no matter what it is: Jesus is the way out.
