Abused and homeless, there is one thing that gives Randall Sasha Smith hope in life.

"I have no home to stay in outside prison and no job," Randall begins openly.

"I used to live an empty life with no family around but I have found that Jesus gives true life to those who seek Him whole heartedly."

Randall had a rough start to life because his father abused him and so did others.

"I got into drugs at a young age so I left school in standard seven and ended up living on the streets. I used to have pride and jealousy towards what other people had and would break into people's cars to get money to buy food and drugs," he confesses.

Now in prison for his theft, Randall says a pastor's sermon touched his heart and showed him that there is hope even when there are many troubles in life.

"I heard about the salvation Jesus offers to those that believe in his Word (the Bible)," he explains.

"I decided to follow Jesus and become a Christian because I believe in Jesus and His Word. This decision has changed my life for the better."

The Bible constantly reminds Randall that this life may be hard but those who believe and live for Jesus will one day have a home in in heaven forever.

As Jesus says in John 14 verse 1-3, "Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also."?
