Jamie Allen was born and raised in Reidsville, GA, and is currently 31 years of age. He was an employee for the government for 8 years at Ft. Stewart, GA, and medically retired in April 2015. Jamie has been blessed with an opportunity to travel sharing his testimony at different venues (Churches, Schools, and Camps).
At the age of 17 Jamie was involved in a four wheeler accident. He suffered a spinal cord injury in his neck (C5 and C6 incomplete). He also lost the movement in his fingers which makes it difficult to hold and pickup everyday items. His life style choices that he made during his teenage years were far from impressive to say the least.
Jamie’s teenage years were completely centered on sports, partying, and women. As he continued to live his life he became obsessed with materialistic objects this world had to offer. Not knowing what was in store for his life in the near future Jamie thought he had his life figured out. He just knew that he was destined for greater things like money, a big house, a shiny car, and a lot of women. Because Jamie was lost and covered with sin he was blind and lived only for himself. Never did Jamie realize that everything he thought was important was about to be stripped away.
The accident opened Jamie’s eyes to letting him see who his true friends were at that time. A large majority of the people that he partied with and had inappropriate relationships with never showed or called to let Jamie know that they were thinking about him or concerned. He began to realize that his entire world had been flipped upside down.
After spending a few years searching for answers and reasons why this accident happened to him at the bottom of a battle and drugs, God entered Jamie’s life by showing Jamie God’s grace and mercy through the life, death, and resurrection of Gods son Jesus Christ!
God has provided Jamie a platform to share his testimony with anyone in order for those that are lost, just as he was in his youth, to come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior!
