Tyson had the pleasure of sharing his testimony at The Chapel, a church in his hometown of Sandusky, Ohio. Everyone faces adversity at some point in their lifetime, but some choose to blame God for their circumstances. Tyson looks at it from a different perspective and chooses to use his adversity to help others and strengthen his faith in God. Please watch the video of his testimony and hopefully it will help you in your walk with God! (Click image to view video)
