A notorious gang member who encountered Jesus Christ in his prison cell now lives a transformed life for God.

Alexander Pagani

Alexander Pagani lived The Bronx street life at a very early age. Both his parents were involved in drugs and at the young age of 14, he was already sitting in the juvenile center facing at least one year in prison.

“I felt completely rejected and totally embraced that sense of orphan or abandonment,” he said in a video testimony posted by the 700 Club Interactive. “I just lived for myself like it’s just me and I’m gonna do whatever I got to do to survive just me.”

Gang Member

Alexander lived the life on the streets causing trouble. His Christian grandmother had been trying to introduce Jesus to him, however, he declined her many times. At the age of 17, he was arrested for robbery, burglary, and kidnapping. While in prison, he even stabbed two other inmates for absolutely no reason.

Alexander’s aunt, Vilma, who is a youth counselor in a church tried reaching out to him while he was serving his sentence in prison. A Christian guard also tried to share the Gospel with him. Alexander listened to them as he had no other choice.

Encounter

During his court trial, some voice spoke to him to plead guilty. Alexander knew in his heart that it was God who talked to him at that moment. The next day, while in his prison cell, he had an encounter with the Lord.

“Jesus Christ came into my cell and he speaks to my right ear, ‘follow me,’” he recalled. “I lifted my hand and when I said ‘I accept,’ it felt like things were breaking off of me. And I felt so peaceful, and I fell asleep.”

Changed life

When he woke up the next morning, his life was instantly changed!

“Cigarettes, the pornography, the cursing, everything instantaneously left me and I lived for Jesus behind the prison walls.”

Today, Alexander is living a life serving the Lord who saved him out of the darkness. Listen to his story and see how God redeemed his life.
