A Troubled Childhood: Losses, Starvation, Loneliness and Depression “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy…” (John 10:10a) Everybody has a life story. Some people like it and some don’t, and some don’t care about it, but the truth of the matter is that everybody has one. You have your own life story as I have mine. I would love to hear yours, but for now, I wanted to ask your permission to share with you my life story. Also, I want to encourage you to read it from the beginning to the end as if you are going on a journey. I pray that by reading my story, you will be inspired and challenged to change the way you see your own story because things can change, and it can change for good or even for the better. I am Valmir Pereira, proudly “Pastor” Valmir Pereira, and this is my story. I was born into a poor and very problematic Catholic family in one of the most impoverished cities in the State of São Paulo, Brazil. Poverty was not the primary cause of our famil
Light in the Darkness: The Healing Hope “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1:5) The two voices from the inside In the midst of my darkest time, the fear of death was growing in my heart.

Also, I was convinced that my life
The New Life: A Powerful Transformation Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (Gal. 5:17) The New Life: Cleaning the Inside As I wrote in the last post, the day when I came to Christ was April 24 th , 1991, a Wednesday night prayer service. I also said that night Jesus set me free from drugs, but I was still struggling with alcohol and cigarettes. Yet, I wrote that after the pastor shared with me that God had spoken to him that one day I would be the pastor of that church - Around June 1991 I got strengthened to fight with my alcohol addiction. On that day I made a commitment to God to stop drinking, and I did stop. No more alcoholic drink. Those words, said by the pastor, about me being a pastor at that church echoed in my mind day and night. It seemed insane, but I liked that; I wanted those words to come true in my life. I began to pray about being a pastor. I made myself available to God. I sta
