Twice Dead

We have an evangelist this week.  His name is Roman Gutierrez.  He has quite a story!  They did a drama last night about his life and it's amazing he's alive.  He's been shot in the back of the head, stabbed twice, part of his ribs blown off, his arm severed.  He died twice, once for 5 minutes and another for 6 minutes.  He said his mom used to party and leave him locked in a closet with no food or water.  One time she even left town for 4 days with him locked in a closet. He had no food or water and of course no restroom.  He was only 6 years old in a dark closet, screaming.  So he grew up in San Antonio, Texas with gangs.  He grew up with so much hate.  While waiting for his father to come get him for the weekend, he gets a phone call that his dad was found dead with a needle still in his arm.  By eleven he started shooting up and had his first tatoo.  I found the book online!  It's his story.  You'd just be amazed and you can even buy it as low as $6.54.  Not trying to advertise just to get you to buy a book.  This is an amazing testimony of how is was delivered and I can tell you that it wasn't through rehab or through doctors!  Anyway, he is preaching for us every night through Thursday.  I'm just so excited and Saturday we passed out flyers door to door to invite people.  I had an excellent time.  I will share with you tomorrow about it!

Roman Gutierrez has an awesome story of redemption and salvation...I would love to see the play...heard a lot about it, especially in the Trumpets. :)
