God Will Provide began in a living room with five recovering addicts, or students, and two pastors in 2005. It has multiplied since, first establishing the men’s rehabilitation facility, followed by a women’s center, and missionary college. Based largely on donations from local churches, fundraisers, and missionary services held by Fountain of Life Church, God Will Provide has expanded orphanages and/or churches in countries worldwide including Austria, Honduras, India, Bangladesh, Mozambique, Kenya, and Ukraine; plans for Somalia are in its early stages. Interestingly, “every single one of these [establishments was started] by people who were ex-addicts… Every single one of them were all students in the program at one point,” reveals Andy.
“My lifestyle [has] changed so dramatically that they’re not really expecting [me to] slip… There are some people [who] go through the program that fall, of course. They’re hoping I’d never be one of them and I know I’ll never be one of them… Every time I would even get a thought [to use], I’d think of the nightmare that it was. It was a nightmare. Never again… Never, never, ever, ever.”
