Joe Shaia - It was April, 13 years ago, when the Sheriff of Galveston County, Texas walked up to Joe Shaia's door, as a friend, and told him he was being evicted from his home. He had until Friday to move out or the Sheriff had orders to move him out. His daughter had just been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, and he had lost everything in the world. He owned eleven houses, and they were all being foreclosed on or being taken back from the banks. When the smoke would clear, he would owe over $580,000. Lost and nowhere to turn, he turned to God. Today he operates a business that does five million dollars a year, and he is totally out of debt. You will want to come and hear how God moved in Joe's life, and how he was able to find success after so many failures.
