My name is Kelvin. I am 46 years old. Three years ago I was so lost because of my drug and alcohol problem that I didn’t know what was up or down. I had tried all types of drugs to deal with personal issues and had no purpose in life. I approached a gentleman from a church who directed me to Remar. During these past three years I have been re-establishing my walk with God and have seen him restore many things in my life. I had completely destroyed all ties with my family for many years, to the extent that they didn’t know whether I was dead or alive. God has started to restore my family. I am learning to depend on God and he is teaching me how to be a father to my children. God is very important in my life and by His grace I am still here.It is through Him that I have been able to achieve a purpose, handle responsibility and react differently to problems.


Luke My name is Luke and I am 36 years old. I was an interstate truck driver and due to the workload required, I slowly became reliant on amphetamines to stay awake and keep my schedules. Some years later my marriage broke down, I became lonely and depressed and started using heavier drugs to cope with the despair. During this time I lost touch with my family and friends and started associating with hardened criminals and drug dealers. Pretty soon I discovered that the path I was heading down was prison or death. I decided that the life I was leading was not the life intended for me and soon discovered, despite all the drugs, that I was again alone in the world. Having reached rock bottom, I decided to seek help and through various contacts I arrived at Remar more than two and a half years ago. After the first week, during a church service, I asked Jesus into my life and immediately I felt the burdens of my bad life, my poor decisions and the enormous guilt I had, lift completely.

My life at Remar and my walk with God has brought about drastic changes that were needed. It is now by the grace of God that my family relationships have been restored and I am learning to face life’s many problems with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. I realize now that it takes a long time to repair the damage done over many years.
