My name is Jennifer Thomas, I am from Dexter, Missouri. I struggled with addiction to alcohol and meth for over 20 years. My life was so empty, I had lost my children due to my drinking, and poor life choices. I was truly at rock bottom and felt I would always be that way. I had been to several secular rehabs, and tried every magic pill and shot on the market to stop drinking with no success. But God! In September of 2019, I entered John 3:17 Ministry for women. I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior and made him the Lord of my life. And everything changed. I finally have a joy and love I had been searching for my entire life. Relationships with my 3 children and my family have been restored.

I learned of John 3:16 Ministries when we started coming to events here while I was in the ministry. I ran into Jason Thomas here; he is from my hometown; we knew each other many years ago. He looked so healthy and happy serving Jesus here as an instructor. I was so proud of him and the changes Jesus had made in his life.

I graduated John 3:17 in September of 2020; and not long after Jason and I were married here on the campus of John 3:16 at the Eagle’s Nest Lodge. Today we serve alongside each other here at John 3:16 Ministries. We live here with our son. Amazing things happen in this place and I am so blessed to be a part of witnessing the miracles that happen here in these men and their families lives. I serve around a wonderful group of women here that feels like family to me. When the Lord says he will give you back more than you lost, believe him!

I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten. Joel 2:25
