Increase Story of the Week: Jaime Garcia

Thrilled at being drafted by the Cardinals as a relief pitcher in 2005, Jaime Garcia’s excitement quickly turned to crushing disappointment when he was sent back due to an injury. His whole identity and value was in baseball; to Garcia he was no one without it.

A phone call from his grandmother helped heal his heart, and change his outlook. Watch how Garcia learned about Jesus, and forged a new identity with his salvation.

“Having a relationship with the Lord is not about religion. When you come to know Him and have a relationship with Him, no doubt it’s the best thing that’s happened in my life.”

Garcia now pitches for the Atlanta Braves.
