"I have often noticed how God uses the
toughest times as a stepping stone for our
future. Before starting New Heights, we
endured one of the hardest experiences of
our lives and it will forever keep us
humble, thankful and strong. We'd like to
share with you our personal "test"imony
and what we will forever remember as
"
The Accident".
