James Long grew up in a Christian home with parents who loved and cared for their family. His life took a turn when her began selling marajuana and made more money than he thought he could ever make. This led into selling harder drugs. By the age 18 he had been arrested twice for drug trafficking and attempted murder. He started feeling convicted when he saw lives he was ruining and ended up at rock bottom — living on the streets of Orlando after selling his car, bed and even dog to get his last high.
His life was changed one day when he felt that he heard God speak to him and ask if he was ready to change.
