Bach's Story


When OEW team member Bach was six, there was a priest from his school who would spend a lot of time with Bach and his brothers, taking them to do fun things. The priest would sometimes tell these boys about God. But one day, it all went horribly wrong when he took Bach with him alone. If God was anything like that priest, Bach wanted nothing to do with Him. Left feeling abused and lonely, Bach turned to sniffing paint and looking at porn to ease his pain for a little while. When he got to high school, he started selling drugs. Until one night he and his friend were held at gunpoint and robbed. This made Bach think about what would have happened if he died. Bach tells us how he ended up in a place he never thought he’d go to find a difference, to find healing, to be free.
