    Ep #211 – Meet George Cunningham

    (DISCLAIMER: This episode is a very raw and unfiltered  interview and as such contains some explicit language. Listener discretion is advised.)

    Have you ever grasped the weight of a second chance, the kind that reshapes the very core of a human soul? Listen in as we visit with our special guest, George Cunningham, to hear his journey from the chilling grip of drug addiction and loneliness to the warm embrace of persistent compassion.

    Our conversation traverses the rugged terrains of his life – from the horrors of war as a Marine, to the isolation of living in a tent, to his encounter with  TRM's outreach team who saw beyond his circumstances to the man desperate for hope. As George's tale unfolds, we witness the birth of trust and friendship amidst the rubble of past betrayals, and celebrate his hard-fought victory through the potent combination of faith and support of others

    This episode isn't just a chronicle of one man's redemption – it's an invitation to witness how love, faith, and a helping hand can illuminate the path from the darkest of places to a future brimming with possibility.
