Riches to Rags

Robert’s life was completely rocked when his older brother was senselessly murdered in a botched drug deal turned robbery. From that moment his life began to spiral wildly into one of habitual gambling and drinking, eventually escalating into multiple prison sentences for various drug and gang related offenses. It was in prison where Robert was in such a dark place of despair, that he went so far as to attempt to pray to offer up his soul to Satan in exchange for what he hoped to be ultimate power and control over every situation in his life. That all changed when Robert found himself in solitary confinement. While in solitary, he began reading the Gospel of Matthew and experienced a powerful epiphany that changed his heart almost instantly. He began having remorse for those whom he had previously wronged, and experienced conviction for some of his old habits. Today, Robert maintains more joy than ever before, and enjoys working as a faithful servant through the ministry of Project Bayview. Take a few minutes to watch Robert vividly retell his life story, testimony, and what it feels like to have his life changed forever.
