Name: Sydney Winder
Hometown: Albuquerque, NM
Teen Challenge Center: Pensacola Women’s Center
Brief Testimony: I grew up in a broken home and had to grow up fast. I hung out with the wrong crowd and fell in love at a young age. I became addicted to heroin at 17 and by the time I was 20 I was a full-blown IV heroin user. A few months after my boyfriend died, I got arrested and made the decision to turn my life around. I have been in Teen Challenge for 11 months now and my life is completely changed. It’s not about sobriety anymore, it’s about eternity.
Vision/Calling God has given you: God has placed a desire in my heart to help other girls ou tof addiction and into a new life. A life that they can be happy with, where God is the main focus.
How has ELP impacted you? ELP has really helped me to see my strengths and talents, and also showing me how to channel them in the right direction.
