Program #3579 Ed Jacquin Sunday, August 18, 2019
3579 Ed Jacquin (Alcoholism, Disability, Suicide, Communism) Ed rebels against his parents, and wrecks a car as a result of alcohol and speeding. After spending thirty days in a coma he begins a year of rehab with the hope that one day he’ll be able to walk again. Learning he’ll be wheelchair dependent for the rest of his life sends him into a deep depression filled with alcohol, drugs and thoughts of suicide. God uses a televangelist to save him and Ed begins serving at a local church. An unexpected ten-day mission trip to Russia leads to ten years of ministry in Russian orphanages where he shares the Gospel with young students, many of whom are disabled like he is.
