One day my mother saw me and said these words “look how you look, the police is still looking for you” when I decided to run no more and with my mother accompanying me to the police station we got there and we gave my name and address to the police officers and on the system they didn’t have no record of me on the system not even the address of my mother’s house. We left the police station when I admitted that I need help.
My name is Gershwin Gouws. I am 43 years old. I was raised in a house where both parents serve the Lord. At the age of 15 I got involved with gangsterism and drugs. For 20 years it was prison in and out, I destroyed my relationship with my family, but my mother never stopped praying for me and never gave up on me. My life as a gangster always made to always to look over my shoulder because of hits (targets)on your life. Early in 2021 I was introduced to The Hope Revolution. I met Jesus and my life was never the same. I strongly believe that if the Lord did it for me, there is Hope for those who are still trapped. With Jesus, I got my joy back and my life was restored as well as my relationship with my family and the community.
All honor to God.
