      Dear brother,

      Thanks for sharing. Actually, nobody knows why homosexuality develops
      in some people. Trying to find a simplistic answer would do more harm
      than good. Probably hormones play a role, but there are plenty of
      other factors behind.

      Welcome to the team! I've also made peace with the idea that this
      process of healing might be lifelong! I don't see healing as having
      heterosexual lust, but as becoming closer to Jesus and to the one he
      created in me.

      Lots of love in Him,
