Jim Berg became acquainted with Winn Freeman, a former drug addict who came to Christ and launched a discipleship ministry, Wisdom in Living Life, in Greenville, SC. Winn taught seminars in churches in the area on drug awareness and the power of the Gospel to change lives. He taught weekly classes to addiction sufferers and counseled them individually. Winn constantly reminded Jim that churches should do more to reach the addiction sufferers in their communities and in their churches. Jim’s burden to reach these men and women increased as a result of these conversations.
