In 2003 I received a book named Forgiven for two times, where a man knows God in the prison and after release he receives a letter from God and he decides to become a missionary and after a while he is killed because his belief in Christ.
I also received that letter from Jesus and I changed my attitude toward people and now I can thank to God because He wrote me also. It is about a love letter from God, a kind of love that not take the past as being important but the present and the future. This was the moment of knowing God and His Plan for me, He sent His Only Son to die on a cross: Jesus Christ and after I confessed my sins and I asked forgiveness, He, full of eternal love washed with His blood all my sins and made me whiter than the snow.
He called me twice, when I was 12 and when I was 21, at 12 years old I rejected Him being forced by my parents who had some wrong perceptions about penitents (adventist) and when I was 21 I rejected Him because the evil was controling me, I rejected Him than in order to meet Him here, in 2003, in the penitentiary, the worse place from the Earth.
But to not forget that God come into the world for those like me not for those that listen to His Word and respect His demands. He came on the earth for the siners not for the righteous man.
I am so sorry because after He was crucified by the people from that periode, I crucified Him again being a siner and not wanting to know Him, I gored His hands and His legs with my sins.
I found a way to turn to Him, to accept Him after He discovered Himself to me in a specific way: writing me a letter with His Own Hand, a letter throught which He was calling me to repentence and forgiveness, He knocked on the door of my heart, He wanted to come in and I let Him in, I let Him to eat with me, and I can now eat with Him, as it is writen in Revelation, chapter 3, verse 20.
I wrote to my family about my meeting with God, some of them congradulated me and the others didn't react in any way.
I am continuing to tell them through letters about the God's work for my own person and I will pray that my family get interested in knowing the Word of God, The Good News, the Scripture.”
