Light has shone into the black holes of humanity. Decades of drug addiction; horrific abuse; multiple suicide attempts; gangster violence; prison; prostitution; homelessness....yet, through the power of God's love, an association of churches known as Betel, has helped thousands of desperate heroin addicts to be set free from their downwardly spiralling existence and experience freedom in Christ. There is hope for all of us. Humberto Fernandez, in his book, Heroin said, "Our perception of addiction as an incurable disease has not changed much. In 1930 Sirovich stated: 'Medical science is almost powerless to redeem these unfortunates.' Today we say treatment can work, but the fact is it works for relatively few...". One wonders what Fernandez might have written if he had been to Betel.

From the Back Cover:

This book contains hope-filled stories of redemption and transformation from the rehabilitation program started by the largest Protestant church in Spain. From the seed planted in one church in Madrid, there are now over 50 communities. They are known as Betel - a Spanish word meaning House of God. The men and women that have formed this community of grace are affectionately called Betelitos. This is their story. They used to be involved in horrific abuse, multiple suicide attempts, overdoses, gang violence, prison, prostitution, and homelessness. Three quarters of the congregation have been addicted to heroin and nearly all have spent at least one night in prison. Five years ago, half the church was HIV positive. There have been too many funerals. Every Betelito has a past they would rather forget. Desperate and alone, they came to the program and found hope. Now they have experienced forgiveness, belonging, restoration, healing, and community. They have joined a family and experienced love and welcome few of them had even seen before. Through the power and grace of God, they have come to know redemption and transformation. Not only are they off the streets but free of their past and passionate about their future. There is hope.
