The Transformed

By a male, 46-60 years old , in Busia, Kenya
Map of THE TRANSFORMED Having been among the most wanted criminals in Kenya my life was simply very sensitive. I could not just walk around the streets any howly. We had robbed banks and hijacked many for randsom but all we had as a result of robbery was nothing. We could not use because all our pictures were all over the nation. One fine evening as i walked alone in the dark, a man from behind called me and so i looked back to see who he was because it was not easy for any one to realise me or to identify me in such a dark night. The man came near me and told me ''Jesus still loves you so give your life to him'', That statement almost swipped me off my feet and i felt broken in my heart and that became the genesis of the new transformation Kimani as i kneel down and the guy led me in a prayer of confession.
