Pat Bradley’s story is a trophy-case display of the life changing power of the Gospel of Christ. His alcoholism led to divorce. Afterwards his wife placed their children in Life Christian School in St. Louis, MO. Pat went to a school function, certain that he would observe the “brainwashing” being done to his children. As they say, “the rest is history!” Pat — the marketing businessman whose life was a mess — heard the Gospel … how Jesus Christ loves us, died as a sacrifice for our sins, rose from the dead, and desires to live within each one of us. He accepted Jesus’ offer to personally enter his life. Pat’s new “fire” within motivated him to make a series of short-term mission trips to poor countries throughout the world – at his own expense. ln the year 2,000 he formed International Crisis Aid (www.crisisaid.org). With ICA board oversight, the ministry’s operational pattern is to visit several third world poor countries, purchase food locally (thus helping the local economy), distribute locally digestible food directly to starving people … in Jesus name … for just pennies per person per day!
Oh yes … Pat and the bride from whom he was divorced … remarried! They now have a happy, loving home. Jesus put it back together!!
