From Gang Member to God’s Chosen

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

Our mission at Inspiration Ministries is to take Jesus to those who are lost and hurting – people like Pablo, a young immigrant who moved to Los Angeles and landed in the center of the LA ganglands. Fear compelled Pablo to join other El Salvador immigrants, and by age 11, he was actively involved with the notorious MS-13 gang.

Even among other gangs, the excessive violence and cruelty of the MS-13 members bred fear. But for Pablo, the gang was where he felt safest even though he confesses others were not safe from him. “For years, I terrorized people, extorting, manipulating, intimidating, and hurting others.”

Pablo’s world was filled with death, destruction, and hopelessness. Gangs couldn’t kill him. The justice system couldn’t deter him. He was totally out of control and lost without anyone to guide him to the truth.

So, what the police and gang retaliations couldn’t do, God did. Pablo contracted an incurable, rare bone disease and felt for the first time what it meant to need a Savior. He was scared, lost, totally alone. That’s when God led him to Inspiration TV.

“I began to see life differently. Watching your shows made me think about my wrong doings.” Pablo’s change took time. Little by little he began letting his guard down and making better choices – pulling away from gang life. “I don’t put myself in wrong situations where people can get hurt or die anymore. I feel closer to God and myself. Thanks for your shows, and God bless you!”

Thank you for helping us cover the earth with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord (Habakkuk 2:14) because when people meet Jesus, lives change!

What God has done for Pablo, He can do for YOU! Our prayer ministers would love to agree with you in prayer for the breakthrough you need.
