    Over the last year, David Stevens has shared how God transformed his life in a series of videos, right up to the point of his death this month.

    The series of short films combines to give a moving, inspiring and deeply personal account of how one man discovered what it means to follow Christ.

    A cocaine dealer and addict in London, David recalls how he prayed a desperate prayer and, in his weakness, began to receive a longing for God.

    NB. This video contains explicit language at one point.

    When he read the Bible for the first time, he “felt somehow a little different: changed, transformed."

    “What was going on for me was what [I read] in the Bible about change, transformation and love and there being this benevolent force who loved me – Jesus Christ.”

    The videos are just a glimpse of one Christian disciple. In churches across the Diocese, there are ordinary people like David for whom God has made an extraordinary difference.
