Rumble A homeless man high on drugs didn't just hear good news, he lived it out, recalling after his dramatic transformation in an Arkansas church, "God is real."

In February, the Conway Police Department was searching for Brenton Winn, 23, after he broke into Central Baptist Church, angry at God, high on meth, and unsure of what happened in the dead of night when he destroyed $100,000 worth of church property, including laptops, cameras, and other electronics.

Months later, however, he walked in the light of day, standing in the church's baptismal pool publicly declaring his allegiance to Christ in the same church, given a second chance at life.

"As I'm starting to understand how God works, I've realized I didn't pick the church that night. God picked me," Winn told the Baptist Press. "If it had been any other church, I think I'd be sitting in prison right now."
