Bosco Poon's choice to pursue gang involvement landed him in prison, right where God was waiting for him. Read Transcript


Reporter: BOSCO POON

GREW UP A SHY, INSECURE

IMMIGRANT FROM HONG KONG.

HE LONGED TO FIT IN

SOMEWHERE, AND A CHINESE

GANG LURED HIM IN.

THEY INTRODUCED ME TO A

WORLD THAT WAS SO FOREIGN TO

ME.

Reporter: BUT BOSCO HAD

A DREAM.

HE WANTED TO BE A MUSICIAN.

I CAME OUT BECAUSE I WAS

SO DETERMINED I WANTED TO

ENTER INTO THE MUSIC

INDUSTRY.

Reporter: TWO YEARS

LATER, HIS OLD FRIENDS

CALLED HIM WITH AN OFFER TO

MAKE SOME QUICK CASH.

RENT THEM A VACANT HOUSE HIS

PARENTS OWNED, NO QUESTIONS

ASKED.

HE DID.

HE SOON FOUND OUT THEY HAD

KIDNAPPED A MAN AND HIDDEN

HIM IN THE BASEMENT UNTIL

THE RANSOM WAS PAID.

THEY WERE VERY

DESPERATE.

IT WAS LIKE THEY WERE A

BUNCH OF ANIMALS.

A THOUGHT IN MY HEAD WAS

SHOULD I RUN DOWN THERE AND

UNTIE HIM AND GET HIM TO THE

POLICE STATION.

OR SHOULD I JUST CALL

9-1-1.

AND IN THE BACK OF MY MIND,

ALL OF THIS FEAR, WHAT IF

THEY FIND OUT I LET THE GUY

GO AND THEY TURN THEIR RAGES

ON ME.

IT WAS THEN I

REALIZED, LIKE, WHAT HAVE I

DONE?

Reporter: WITHIN A

WEEK, THE POLICE HAD TRACKED

DOWN AND ARRESTED THE

KIDNAPPERS, INCLUDING

BOSCO.

I WAS PUT INTO THE POLICE

CAR AND THEN INTO THE

WAGON.

LOOKING AT MY PARENTS

SOBBING.

LOOKING AT ALL OF THE

NEIGHBORS, LIKE, POKING

THEIR FINGERS AT ME.

Reporter: BOSCO WAS

CONVICTED TO HIS PART IN THE

KIDNAPPING AND SENTENCED TO

12 YEARS.

HE ENTERED PRISON SCARED AND

ALONE.

I WAS LIKE, HOW CAN I

SURVIVE IN HERE?

IT WAS FULL OF VIOLENCE,

DRUGS, DEPRESSIVE, BROKEN

HEARTS, PAIN, SCREAMING AND

CRYING.

SO I HAD A LOT OF TIME TO

REFLECT ON STUFF, WHICH I

NEVER DID BEFORE.

Reporter: THE REALITY

OF HIS SITUATION HIT HIM

HARD.

I WAS SOBBING, CRYING OUT

TO GOD.

I WAS LIKE, LORD, ARE YOU

REAL?

WELL, IF YOU ARE REAL, CAN

YOU TALK TO ME.

BECAUSE I HAVE NOBODY ELSE.

AND THEN THIS SCRIPTURE CAME

TO ME.

JESUS SAID, I'M ALWAYS WITH

YOU UNTIL THE END OF THE

AGE.

I CLAIMED THAT SCRIPTURE.

I WAS LIKE, LORD, TALK TO ME

IF YOU ARE REAL BECAUSE I

REALLY NEED SOMEONE TO TALK

TO RIGHT NOW.

MY HEART WAS FULLY READY TO

RECEIVE GOD AND TO HAVE A

REAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

Reporter: BOSCO

SURRENDERED HIS LIFE TO

JESUS.

A FEW WEEKS LATER, WHILE IN

PRAYER, HE HAD AN INCREDIBLE

VISION.

I SAW A CLOUD OF GREAT

WHITE LIGHT COMING DOWN FROM

HEAVEN.

AND THEN THIS LIGHT WAS

GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER

UNTIL IT REACHES INTO MY

HEART.

IT LIFTED UP MY HEART.

I WAS, LIKE, ELECTROFIED.

ALL I COULD ACTUALLY HEAR

WAS A VOICE, "DON'T BE

AFRAID.

I AM YOUR LORD AND I WILL

RESCUE YOU."

EVER SINCE THAT EXPERIENCE,

I TALK TO HIM LIKE I TALK TO

YOU RIGHT NOW, WHILE I WAS

IN PRISON.

AND HE JUST OPENED UP MY

SPIRITUAL EARS.

HE HAS EXPERIENCED THE

POWER OF GOD IN HIS LIFE.

SOMETHING CHANGED IN HIM

THAT CAUGHT HIM ON FIRE.

HE WAS ALWAYS TALKING TO

SOMEBODY ABOUT THE LORD, OR

COMING INTO MY OFFICE AND

SAYING, CAN WE PRAY FOR SO

AND SO.

THE LORD CHALLENGED ME

ONE DAY TO PRAY FOR MY

ENEMIES.

TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, I

DON'T THINK I WANTED TO DO

THAT.

I WAS LIKE, LORD, NO, IT IS

TOO HARD.

AND HE WAS LIKE, NO, TAKE MY

LOVE AND DO IT.

MY LOVE IS SO MUCH BIGGER

THAN YOURS.

WHEN I WAS PRAYING FOR ALL

OF MY EYES WITH TEARS COMING

DOWN, I FOUND FREEDOM.

GOD RESCUED ME FROM HATRED.

Reporter: BOSCO SERVED

FOUR YEARS BEHIND BARS.

TODAY HE

IS OUT ON PAROLE.

AND NOW HE IS SURRENDERED BY

SINGERS.

HE SHARES HIS TESTIMONY WITH

OTHERS, HOPING THEY WILL

MEET JESUS, AS HE DID.

THE SAME JESUS WHO

REVEALED HIMSELF TO ME, THE

SAME JESUS THAT HAS RESCUED

ME, IS THE SAME JESUS THAT

CAN COMFORT ANY ONE OF US

OUT THERE.

I ONLY LIVE FOR JESUS.

BECAUSE HE SAVED ME.

HE GAVE ME LIFE.

HE SHOWED ME SO MANY

THINGS.

HE IS THE SOURCE OF MY LIFE,

AND HE IS MY LORD AND MY

SAVIOR.
