Angel: A Conversion from Hate to Love

When on a mission trip last year I meet a cool kid name Angel. When I mean cool you know that type that sits in the back and make snide remarks. I only know this kid because, I use to be him and hang out with kids just like him. In this time of my life I felt the Holy Spirit draw me near him. I feel this lot since; I hunger for evangelism and ministering to the youth. Well, Angel has a sorted story and if I knew I probably would have scared him off at first but I have a tendency to talk to people before I say Jesus wants you to come into the Kingdom. This is a method like this of tell me your story, then I tell you Jesus story and one experience of mine that maybe impact your life. So I am talking to Angel at the youth group and he is very much closed to the idea of me ministering to him but I know guys and this guy likes music and especially drums (Holy Spirit helps a lot).So, we talk drums and then dreams and what he wants to do and then I say God can take you places you can’t imagine and then I hear the truth of his heart. Jesus I don’t believe in Jesus. Does this shock me? No, many kids at youth groups don’t believe in Jesus. Well I tell him for some reason a story of God reuniting me with my son. Angel gets a look in his eye and there it is the softening begins I broke through. Well I said would like to know Jesus and of course this is too soon but hey sometimes you never know your answer. He told me not yet and I say I am around for a couple of days and we will hang out. My college goes around to different Teen Challenges and ministers to kids everywhere and we are in Oklahoma. So we do a bonding time so we can know the kids better so we do a field day and service later that night. In the presentation I preach a message about open doors for Christ and I move with the power of the Holy Spirit and a hunger for just one soul jumps out of me and you know who it is Angel. This is the part where you have to have faith in the Father because what he told me to say was not common with what I say. These are the exact words "Angel do you want to die?" What? We talked back and forth he said he didn’t love Jesus and I told him that was a lie and I know he did and he fought every tear in his eye, I was making a bold attempt to snatch this life from the flames of hell. I was like, ok no turning back if I am going to be bold let me go all in. So guess what I did and then came the question of alright Angel what are you going to do. A stillness came into the room worship was drowned out heaven and hell were at a standstill and Boom like a sonic boom in the room. Angel began to sob and threw his arms around me and said these wonderful words."I do love Jesus, I Love Jesus". A glorious spirit broke forth and I walked him to the alter and led him to Jesus and something else happened at that alter his eyes became blank and he began to shake under the power of God and gripped the stage with such strength every man came and laid hands on him. I stepped back and say a darkness leave his eyes. Later he says a voice he has heard for so long left him that night. The leaders of the Teen Challenge said a curtain fell and let me tell everyone in that room received joy and this was one moment as a budding Evangelist I will never forget.
