Bob Hamer: Undercover Christian

Bob shares his amazing experiences of a career in the FBI and how God protected him Read Transcript


I WOULD POSE AS A

CONTRACT KILLER, A DRUG

DEALER, A RESIDENTIAL

BURGLAR, A WHITE-COLLAR

CRIMINAL.

I WAS A PEDOPHILE FOR THREE

YEARS.

I'VE BEEN AN INTERNATIONAL

ARMS DEALER.

Reporter: BOB HAMER

SPENT 26 YEARS WITH THE

F.B.I. AS AN UNDERCOVER

AGENT.

HE SAYS HE FELT A PROTECTION

THAT THE BEST BODY ARMOR AND

COVER COULDN'T PROVIDE.

I PRAYED BEFORE EVERY

UNDERCOVER SIG ASSIGNMENT.

TYPICALLY, IT WAS A PRAYER

OF STRENGTH.

GOD, GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO

CARRY OUT THIS ASSIGNMENT.

I WAS THE UNDERCOVER AGENT

IN THE L.A. MAFIA CRIMINAL

CASE.

IF THEY DISCOVERED WHO I

WAS, I COULD HAVE BEEN

KILLED.

BUT THERE WAS USUALLY A

SENSE OF PEACE BECAUSE I

THOUGHT I WAS WHERE I WAS

SUPPOSED TO BE.

Reporter: HE FOUND HIS

CALLING WHILE IN HIS 20s.

BOB APPLIED FOR A JOB AS AN

F.B.I. AGENT, BUT WAS TURNED

DOWN DUE TO A HIRING

FREEZE.

BEFORE ACCEPTING ANOTHER

JOB, HE STOPPED TO PRAY.

THE NEXT MORNING THE

F.B.I. CALLED AND THEY SAID,

WE JUST HAD SOMEBODY DROP

OUT OF OUR SEPTEMBER CLASS.

ARE YOU STILL INTERESTED IN

BEING AN F.B.I. AGENT?

THAT WAS MY CALLING.

I COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR A

MORE DIRECT ANSWER TO

PRAYER.

I ALWAYS CAME BACK TO THAT

ANSWER TO PRAYER, THAT I WAS

MEANT TO BE IN THE F.B.I.

Reporter: BOB SAYS HIS

FAITH IN GOD GAVE HIM

COMFORT AND PROTECTION.

DEUTERONOMY 31: 8 "THE

LORD HIMSELF WILL GO BEFORE

YOU AND BE WITH YOU, HE WILL

NEVER LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE

YOU.

DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED.

DO NOT BE AFRAID."

THAT VERSE MEANT A LOT TO ME

THROUGHOUT MY CAREER.

THERE WERE TIMES, LITERALLY

WALKING INTO AN UNDERCOVER

MISSION, INTO AN ASSIGNMENT,

WALKING INTO A ROOM FULL OF

MEN WITH GUNS, NOT KNOWING,

LITERALLY, WHETHER I WOULD

COME OUT ALIVE, WHERE I WAS

RECITING THAT VERSE.

IT SUSTAINED ME THROUGH SOME

OF THE TOUGHEST

ASSIGNMENTS.

Reporter: AND HE

MAINTAINED HIS CHRISTIAN

FAITH AND VALUES, EVEN WHILE

UNDERCOVER.

EVEN THOUGH I MAY HAVE

BEEN PORTRAYING AN

INTERNATIONAL DRUG DEALER OR

AN ARMS DEALER OR A CONTRACT

KILLER, I WAS ABLE TO

MAINTAIN THOSE VALUES.

NOW, THERE WERE TIMES WHEN I

FELT LIKE I WAS KIND OF

SQUEEZING ALL OF THIS EVIL

OUT OF MY SPONGE-LIKE BRAIN

BEFORE I WENT HOME, BEFORE I

WAS ABLE TO SPEND TIME WITH

MY WIFE AND CHILDREN.

BUT I WAS ABLE TO COMPART

MENTALIZE.

Reporter: ONE OF HIS

TOUGHEST ASSIGNMENTS WAS THE

THREE YEARS HE SPENT

INFILTRATING A PEDOPHILE

ORGANIZATION CALLED MANLA,

THE NORTHERN AMERICAN BOY

LOVE ASSOCIATION.

AND NABLA, I HAD TO

BECOME LIKE ONE OF THEM.

THE MEN I WAS DEALING WITH

WERE SEEING THE WORLD

THROUGH A WHOLE DIFFERENT

SET OF EYES.

IT WAS MY MOST DIFFICULT

CASE AND MY MOST DISGUSTING

CASE.

Reporter: BECAUSE OF

HIS UNDERCOVER WORK, SEVERAL

MEN IN THE GROUP'S

LEADERSHIP WERE CONVICTED ON

FEDERAL CHARGES.

HIS BOOK "THE LAST

UNDERCOVER," DETAILS HIS

CAREER IN THE F.B.I. AND THE

NABLA CASE.

IT WAS A BOOK I HAD TO

WRITE.

I WANTED TO ALERT THE WORLD

TO THIS ORGANIZATION AND TO

THE BOY-LOVER.

MOST OF THE MEN I DEALT WITH

SOUGHT THE CHILDREN WHO WERE

SEEKING A FATHER FIGURE.

A LOT OF THEIR TARGETS WERE

FROM SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES OR

FROM HOMES WHERE THERE WAS

AN ABUSIVE FATHER.

BECAUSE WHAT THESE MEN WANT

TO DO IS CREATE SECRETS.

THIS IS JUST OUR SECRET YOU

CAN'T TELL ANYONE.

Reporter: BOB RETIRED

SLORTLY AFTER THE NABLA

CASE.

THE DIFFICULT SITUATIONS

SHOWED HE COULD TRUST GOD.

HE HAS OBVIOUSLY PROVEN

TO ME HE IS GOING TO PROTECT

ME.

I FELT HIS PROTECTION FOR 26

YEARS.

AND BECAUSE I WAS

SUCCESSFUL, THERE WAS

MEANING TO WHAT I WAS TRYING

TO DO, AND I WAS WHERE GOD

WANTED ME TO BE.
