I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus, My name is Pastor Wayne Granston and I am a recovered addict. I’m convinced that;” Those who the Lord set free is free indeed .” (John 8:36). Therefore I am “Made Free“.
For years while in my addiction to crack cocaine, I was jobless, homeless and in a hopeless state of mind, which led me to be incarcerated. During this period, I spent countless holidays and even birthdays “behind bars”. I have spent numerous nights on the streets, in shelters and even tried a few programs; however I was not getting the message.
To survive, I have eaten leftovers that people did not want and have even eaten food off the ground. I cried out to the Lord and asked for His help. He heard me and then I realized there was hope.
During that time in prison, trying to recover on my own seemed hopeless; however the last time I was incarcerated, in my despair, I cried out to the Lord and spoke to my heart and told me to feed His people; not only with spiritual food but also with physical food as well. Since then, I have turned my life over to God and did what He asked of me and the manifestation is the birth of GranstonsGiving for “Physical Food” and the “Spiritual Food” comes through the preached Word at The House of Restoration Worship Center (THOR), where I pastor a great group of people.
I realized that God cared for me through my homelessness. He was at work in my life, by working in and through other people; and for that I’m truly grateful. Therefore, I now stand as a servant of the Lord, allowing Him to work in and through me to serve His people and to fulfill His greatest commandment; to love one another, John 15:12. Through GranstonsGiving and Made Free, we would like to offer that HOPE … Helping Other People Excel
Pastor Wayne L. Granston
