Kanu changed his life and so can you.
“I was brought up in a confused and religious household. We lacked guidance and my father’s 10-year absence didn’t help. We had a fractured relationship where I held a lot of resentment and anger because he wasn’t consistently present. I never knew how to work through these feelings so when the chance to be with the older boys in my area arose, I jumped at it. I affiliated myself with gang members, committed robberies, and became extremely violent.
I was also introduced to pornography, it became an interest, then a hobby, and from a hobby to a habit.

The services at the Universal Church challenged me to be a better man.

Although his journey has been full of downsides and hardships, due to all his past experiences, today Alimamy is a happily married family-man. He has managed to turn his life around and is now enjoying the life he didn’t even know he could have.
“I’m happy to be married and to be a father. The key to my successful marriage is good communication and understanding each other’s perspective. When a disagreement arises, we calmly talk it through until we find a mutually beneficial solution.
We trust that as we do our part and work on ourselves as individuals, our marriage will remain a blessing.”
