Marijuana was his idol … Using it was his source of joy, dealing it was the source of income. He enjoyed this lifestyle until he encountered someone.
Paul Amendola spent 25 years using and dealing marijuana. But when a “Christian junkie” friend brought him to church something changed in his heart. After accepting Jesus Paul didn’t know how to quite the lifestyle he has become so used to. He asked God for help. After his house was broken in to and his marijuana stolen twice, Paul says God caught his attention.
After giving up a drug-centered life, Paul turned to serving God and telling others about Jesus. He has experienced a miraculous encounter in Nepal that showed Him that God had a greater purpose for him. Paul will share why dealing hope, not drugs, has become the greater purpose in his life on this episode of Limitless Spirit.
