In a world filled with bad news, Inspiration TV is sending out the Good News of Jesus Christ—and we recently broadcast the thrilling testimony of Mo Timbo.
Mo Timbo grew up in the UK, in a rough area of southeast London. “I was in an environment of drug dealers, gangsters, and murderers,” he recalls. “And because I lacked a father figure at home, I looked up to the local gang leaders as my fathers.”
At age 14, Mo started smoking marijuana, and soon he was selling drugs to others. He ended up joining violent gangs, where he stabbed people and engaged in all sorts of mischief. Five times he himself was stabbed.
One day he sold drugs to an undercover police officer and was sent to jail. It turned out that this was the jolt Mo needed to point him toward Christ. “Right there, as I was in the jail cell, I had an encounter with Jesus,” he says. “For the first time in my life, I cried out to Jesus, saying, ‘Look, Jesus, I don’t want to be in this situation anymore. I don’t want to be a drug dealer. I don’t want to be in the gangs anymore. I want to change.”
Although he was still in jail, he experienced peace and freedom he had never felt before. “After I received Jesus, my life began to change,” he says, thankfully.
I cried out to Jesus, saying, “Look, Jesus, I don’t want to be in this situation anymore. I don’t want to be a drug dealer. I don’t want to be in the gangs anymore. I want to change.”
And the transformation to Mo’s life had a powerful ripple effect on many others. “God used me to share my faith with other prisoners. I saw over 600 prisoners give their lives to Jesus, and there were many baptisms there in the prison.”
Now Mo is out of prison, and he’s just as on-fire for Christ as ever. Through Inspiration TV, people all over the world are getting to see his testimony. “It’s just amazing to know that God could take me from the streets and put me behind the pulpit. He took me from selling poison to now giving people new life through the Gospel. I thank Jesus for all that He’s done in my life.”
