The kids and I just watched 70X7, the documentary of Robert Carillo, a man whose life was turned around when he came to faith in the Lord. He went from an angry, hopeless drug user with a criminal record, to a forgiven, forgiving, hopeful, grateful man with the love of Christ controlling him. He started reaching out to hurting, needy people with physical help and the gospel. He ended up filling his own home, and then a friend’s, with dozens of homeless people. These people were fed, ministered to practically, taught God’s Word, and lovingly discipled for many years. Robert did this ministry out of his own home (and his friend’s). He became a pastor, and eventually his ministry ended up reaching thousands.
And it all started when God the Holy Spirit, led one ordinary believer to witness to Robert one day, and he obeyed.
