Paul Myers’ father drank heavily and committed suicide when he was 21. Paul, a musician and a heavy drinker, had a series of broken relationships and came close to drinking himself to death. After he started searching for God and praying daily, God helped him to reconcile his past relationships and to start to build a new life for himself. Paul said ‘I’m 59 and feel like my life is just starting!’

Paul features as part of the book ‘John Sentamu’s Hope Stories’ published by Darton Longman and Todd (Sept 2014). (ISBN: 978-0-232-53109-1).  Watch a short video of his hope story ‘I’m 59, and my life’s just starting’ here:
