A man who dreamt of becoming a successful musician ended up in prison for involvement in a kidnapping incident. Then in prison, he met Jesus for the first time and received a message that forever changed his life.
Bosco Poon has always dreamed of entering the music industry. But as an immigrant from Hong Kong, he found it hard to pursue his music career. Until a group of Chinese gang members led him to drugs and gang life.
One day, Bosco’s gang friends kidnapped a man for ransom. They then hid the man in the basement of where he lived. He wanted to untie and let the man escape; however, he feared his friends. Soon, police authorities found their place and arrested all the kidnappers, including Bosco.
Crying Out To God
With Bosco’s involvement in the kidnapping, authorities sentenced him to 12 years in prison. That’s when he began to reflect on his life inside the prison cell. He couldn’t endure the reality his life was facing amid violence, depravity, and loneliness. So, Bosco cried out to God in desperation.
While sobbing, he prayed for the first time, “Lord, are You real? If You are real, can You talk to me because I have nobody else.”
Later on, a Bible verse came to him, and he discovered Jesus’ promise “I’m always with you.” Bosco encountered God through His Word and eventually surrendered His life to Jesus.
Weeks after giving his life to Jesus, Bosco saw an incredible vision where God spoke to him.
“I saw a cloud of great white light coming down from heaven,” he recalled. And as the light got closer to his heart, he felt electricity running through him. Then a voice spoke to him, “Don’t be afraid. I Am your Lord and I will rescue you.”
Since then, Bosco’s life has made a complete turnaround.
