Editor: As I read your newspaper on June 9, 2014, I was overjoyed to read your article concerning Chris Nettleton.

My husband and I had the privilege of talking to this young man in Charlottetown one day. Chris shared with us some of his struggles and was candid and honest about his situation.

To see the transformation and read his story I am so happy to know things are working out for him. He looks at peace and that is so important. He is our peace and to know he gives God the glory touched my heart. We all have our respective stories, but when we hand it over to Jesus He takes our messes and turns them into miracles!

Thank you so much to my fellow Islanders for reaching out to a young man in need. God has shown His love through you all, and I am sure as Christopher follows Jesus, His love will flow through him to others. We sometimes resent what we go through in life, but later we realize God allows hardships in life to make us stronger and enable us to relate to others going through similar situations.

Please continue to be God’s hand extended to our fellow Islanders struggling with addictions. We need to open our hearts to those in need so that God can change another life as He has changed Chris’s.

Praying a blessing over your life today Christopher, and as God bless you, bless others.

Kay and Pat O’Connor,


Geographic location: Charlottetown
