Rick grew up in difficult circumstances. His dad was an alcoholic and died when Ricky was only five. His mom raised him in a neighborhood where he wasn’t welcome and didn’t belong. Gangs, drugs, alcohol, and violence defined his life. During a confrontation, a .357 magnum was placed on his forehead. Rick told the man, “pull the trigger” because he just didn’t care. But God did. If you’ve ever wondered if God can really save and change a hopelessly broken life, you need to hear the story of Rick Burnette.
