I am a survivor of sexual abuse. I was only eight years old. The insecurities I had was something I never thought I would overcome, so I accepted that I would die with them. But God said, "NO SO." Thanks to All Nations Christian Center, a local church in North Huntsville, AL, under Pastor Adrian Davis and the ANCC Family, I was able to finally breathe for the first time and almost two decades of my life. I was shown the pure love that God has for us through them and it allowed my heart to heal from those broken places, what I thought was a death sentence turned into a testimony. With my new found freedom, it was placed on my heart to create a event to promote awareness for this violent crime because it's happening to often and not enough people are getting the information to heal. So, I have created a three mile march in honor of the survivors, supporters, the fallen, and the unaware. History has shown us, that the more voices connected to a common goal, has the ability to make a change. If I can help just one, Man, Women or Child restore their self-worth, then I feel like I have done what God asked me to do. Please help me, help other people. If you don't want a shirt, you are welcome to just sow a seed into this ministry to help with the promoting of the community function up until 3/10/2017. This is a Free event, open to the community. We will have a sign-in sheet at the event just to keep track of how many supports were present and also to send out personal thanks to everyone. If anyone has any other questions, please contact me. I am to answer any questions you may have.
