Jason was a average individual, he had short red hair. Jason was in the 9th grade, he was 15 years old. He always got picked on as a young child for having red hair. They would say things like “you’ll never fit in”, “our hair's on fire”, “gingers don’t have a soul. Jason always felt like an outcast. During recess everyday while all the kids were playing on the phones, gossiping, and play football. He was sitting there reading his bible. The family didn’t grow up in the church settings. His family didn’t not believe in god they just didn’t ever speak on him or anything about him.  He had this teacher is 6th grade named Mrs. X, Mrs. X was his savior his guardian. He would come in everyday for lunch and read the bible with her. He would study his bible. She was the one who helped him discover who god really was. It all started on the first week of school.  Mrs.X knew that something seemed different with jason the most kids. He was VERY smart and he had a great imagination.


He loved to read, Mrs. X stopped him one day and asked him if he had ever picked up a bible and read it. Jason said, “ Not really, my family isn’t really the christian type”, he said. Mrs. X said, “ how about tomorrow you get a lunch and bring it up to my room, we have some discussing to do”. So that’s what Jason did, Mrs. X was on her lunch. She sat him down and laid a bible in front of him. Mrs. X said “turn to Genesis 1:1”.Jason  open the bible and turned to Genesis, she said, “read it aloud please”. Jason said” In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”. Mrs.X said, “ That’s where we start”. Mrs X started to teach Jason, she taught him all the books in the bible and where they were and what they were about.


Jason is now 28 years old, he isn’t married and he doesn’t have children. He would love to have that one day but the right one hasn’t came yet. Jason’s mom and dad died when he was in 12th grade. His mom died from suicide and his dad got beaten to death by his bookie. Oh, did I forget to tell you about Jason’s family. Jason’s mom, Sarah welsh who had 2 jobs  one was a janitor at the local grocery store, and the other worked at the local fast food restaurant, Mcdonald's. Jason’s dad , John welsh didn’t have a single job, he had a gambling problem, every night when our mom would come home after her first job, just to take a shower and the leave for her 2nd job. Their dad would call his bookie and make some bet, he can’t stop one time he gambled away 50,00 dollars. Jason’s mom didn’t have that money, she had to get a third job and then jason’s brother and him both had to get a job. Jason worked at the nearest 1 christ then Me, rehab and habitational center. He could work at the desk because he didn’t have a degree but he could go and worship with them and talk to them about christ. Jason’s brother Ryan welsh, was a wild child he would go out and party every night and come back at 4:00 in the morning and my dad would always catch him because my dad was up making gambles. Jason’s dad made Jason’s  brother make a promise to keep his mouth closed. So that’s what he did.


After Jason’s mom and Dad died, he found himself Free form the worry, he knew that possibly his mom and dad could be in heaven, with christ alone. Jason’s brother Ryan, was in Jail. He was arrested for MURDER, of all things he was never a murder. He was on drugs and he was out of his mind, he went into a restaurant full of people held them captive and murder 6 people. He will be in jail till he dies. So all that’s really left is Jason. Jason got a degree in Psychology, biblical studies, and Christian doctrine. He’s lifelong dream as an adult is to be a preacher.


One day, jason met a guy named Caleb. Caleb seemed like a sweet loving christian guy, one day Caleb told Jason that he looked sick to take this pill. Jason took the pill, then he ended up handcuffed to a hospital bed. He woke up thinking this was all just a dream. He was scream shouting random things. No one would come. He felt all alone. Finally a policeman came in the ask him some questions. Jason screamed at him” What in the heck am I doing here, what did I do, who are you, i don’t feel good, give me some answers”. The policeman started talking to jason. He said, “ Well son you have been arrested for selling and taking illegal drugs, and getting a fugitive out of the united states “. “ He is the most wanted fugitive in the USA. He has further been arrested, he said you drugged him and tried to kill him but he escaped and you gave him money and drugs to flee the country, is that true”? Jason didn’t know what happened everything was a blur, he had taken some pill the made him lose his mind and now he is lying in a hospital bed. He didn’t have any evidence that Caleb drugged him and he was going to go to jail for it. Jason had worked so hard to get his reputation and his family name up to standards. Now that he is going to jail, he is done for.


“ SILENCE IN THE COURT”. The judge ordered, Jason’s case was being executed.



Jason knew not to argue, jason was only allowed to bring a few things to his jail cell. He brought a blanket a newspaper and a bible. He needed to get his life back on track. He need God, at the jail once a month someone from a local church comes and speak to those who want to be spoke to.


Today was the day, the day that he would be free from all that hate and abuse he was put through. It had been 20 years so now Jason was 48 years old and he was not lost and confused anymore. The more he sat in that Jail cell the more he read his bible and the more he talked to god.  Jason said, “ The way I made it out of there was becuase of Him, Christ alone”. He was ready for the adventure, that god had waiting for him. Jason had a goal in mind, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem, Israel was the church he longed to preach at. He send an letter to the directory of the church that said,

Jason Welsh

Oklahoma city, OK 73114


Dear,  Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem, Israel

Hello my name is Jason Welsh, and it has been my lifelong dream to preach at this wonderful church. I have tried all my life to travel around the world, looking for the right church to preach at. Then I found myself at your church. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem, Israel. Your church is wonderful, if you have the time, I would love to tour your church. Thank you for this opportunity. Please write me back at this Address.

Jason couldn’t wait, he couldn’t believe what he did to his life.  He didn’t think any church would want an Ex- drug addict to be there preacher. They also don’t know the struggles that he had to go throught to change his life back. He needed God, his back of plan was to go and travel the world and mintster.


It was the day, it had been 2 years and the church had finally wrote him back. This is what they said,


Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem, Israel
