A basketball star abandoned his promiscuous lifestyle after he discovered the love of God in Christ.
Mick John Louie grew up on the impoverished island of Abeka in the Bahamas where all he saw as a child was poverty. His father left their family when Mick was only two and he was forced to work at a very young age. In this hopeless situation Mich still yearned for a better future.
However, he then discovered pornography and used it to somehow ease the loneliness within him.
“When I started being lonely, I had something to go to. I almost kind of fill that void and it made me feel like, ‘hey this is all you need.’ That was my first real representation of what a man should be doing,” Mick said.
After a few years, Mick asked Jesus into his heart and save him from all his sins. This happened when he attended church with a friend. His new-found faith slowly took away his loneliness and desire for porn.
“My relationship with God definitely was so refreshing because it helped me to understand that I wasn’t by myself. And I had someone watching over me,” he added.
Mick saw what God is doing for his life when he emerged as a basketball star in high school. A full scholarship at the St Thomas University in Miami was also granted to him.
Being in a new country, Mick started to explore things that caused him to fall short on his relationship with God. He started to live a sinful and promiscuous life. Mick was transformed into a man who he did not know. But God made a way to win Mick’s heart again.
One night, while waiting to meet a woman, Mick realized how far he had wandered from God’s presence. Right there and then, Mick asked God for help and repented. He rededicated his life to God.
