Pastor Al Peratt lived a hard life smuggling and selling drugs.  Through a prayer to God, his life has come full circle.  He ministers to the depressed, oppressed, addicted and convicted.

Since October of 2012, Pastor Al has been battling cancer!  "It accelerated so quickly.  By 2013, I was already in radiation and chemotherapy's a fast moving cancer in the neck and head region.  I'll tell you---through treatment which wiped me out---I went into a coma.  I believe the only thing that pulled me out was prayer and family."

On Saturday, hundreds of friends, family members and strangers attended a fund raiser sponsored by the American Legion Riders & Friends to show their support for Pastor Al and to help with the financial hurdles he's been facing.
