“I am Gary Galvez. I achieved success. I became rich. I was an addict.”
AP Media continues to equip the Church to respond to the War on Drugs taking place in the Philippines with the fourth installment in our series — Gary’s story — which has reached over 400,000 views. The story is also being used in local drug rehab centers and in churches.
“My God was money, showing my dad he was wrong,” Gary says. “I reached the peak of my success. We sold hundreds of millions in property. I made my millions. That started my misery.”
Gary found out he could not handle success. He didn’t have time for his family. He had to be number one. “I became just like my dad. What I hated I became.”
Eventually his life of drugs, clubs, casinos and women came crashing down. He lost it all, including his family. “I will never forget when my daughter said to me, ‘Please, Dad, go away.’ ”
Watch Gary’s story to see how God took him from an addict to a fully restored pastor reaching over 7,000 prisoners with the message of Jesus Christ.
