Finding God at the City Dump: The George LeMaster Story
It was Valentine's Day 1982. After two decades of alcohol abuse and a growing list of related problems, George LeMaster Jr. had lost hope. He went to a place where he was familiar--the Wayland Dump, northeast of Wayland, Missouri.
He had scavenged things like bicycle parts and old fans from the dump for years and given them a new life.
George took a handgun and was planning to end his life at the dump that cold February morning but instead found God by one small item at the dump he didn't expect to see. That item caught his attention and changed his story when he was moments away from an irreversible and needless decision.
Now it was George getting a new life, finding the love of Jesus, and rediscovering a love of his family.
Finding God at the City Dump tells George's story of growing up in tiny Wayland in Clark County, Missouri; the alcoholism; the deliverance that God gave him starting at the dump; an incredible healing; the importance of caring friends; and the purpose God gave George that led to his salvation, participation in music, his eventual ministry, and powerful testimony as well as a platform to share it.
His story reminds us that God can work through difficult and impossible circumstances to bring things for his glory.
