Mike rose to become the co-leader of one of the largest criminal gangs.He was born in an abandoned building some where across the boarder,a product of rape,to a single, thirteen-year-old girl who had run away from home.He eventually moved to the city where he brought himself up.He was labeled a public nuisance from small,at age eight,he was caught pick pocketing and almost got burnt by an angry mob but was saved by the divine intervention of the police,he was handed over to the police, who took him to the youth reformatory center.With no physical address and any known family member except his mother who lived in a brothel as a prostitute,it was hard for the authorities to contact her.

He later ran away from the center after spending almost two years there.He found refuge under bridges and sometimes eat from the garbage.He became a street kid and this exposed him to a lot of difficulties thus resorting to crimes as the only means of survival.By the age of 15, Mike was leading one of the largest, toughest street gangs in the city. He carried a gun, ran alcohol stills and extortion rackets.In the early 90s,he became one of the most notorious criminals in the city.Smoked ganja and was involved in a high profile car hijacking,kidnap for ransom and other criminal activities.

By age 19.

Mike became a well known gang leader whose nefarious activities began troubling the authority,he became a menace to the city,threat to Man and made headlines but the fact that he has some corrupt police officers in his pay roll made it difficult for the authority to nab him,he always got tipped off from these officers and the politicians he works for as a hit man provided cover and refuge from the law for him but luck ran out of him on this fateful Saturday evening.He and his gang members tried to hijack a car but the owner was brave enough to open fire on them,they exchanged gun shots and Mike was hit by one of the bullets from the man,three of his accomplices were captured with him and two escaped.

They were found guilty.

Not even his police friends nor political god fathers could save him so he was sentenced to life in prison with his accomplices.

One day in prison.

He watched one of his friend commit suicide and for the first time in his entire life,he felt emotionally down because the guy that committed suicide was his best friend and most trusted partner in crime.All is accomplices died one by one in the prison and he was left alone,sometimes he would think of killing himself like his friend did.

Five years later.

Now 24years with no family except fellow criminals in the prison.There was this Christian outreach which normally visit prisoners so in one of their visits,he was able to come in contact with one of the volunteers,her name was Sarah and she was in her early 20s.Mike was well known and feared by other inmates besides he had everything in prison and couple of cash to spend.His god fathers and those he had killed for kept sending stuffs to him so that he won't ever feel frustrated and perhaps try to implicate them to get freedom or whatsoever.

Sarah preached the word of God to him,"Unless you are born again,you will never see the kingdom of God"How can one be born again he asked,'just like the story in the Bible'.

Wait,do i have to go back inside my mama's belly so she could born me again?he asked.

You have to accept Christ as your personal Lord and savior to be saved.She told him that he either had to believe that he was an animal that walked on two legs, with no purpose or that he was a creation and that there was a Creator, that he had a soul, was of great value and had a purpose in life.This encounter with Sarah continued and in each time she came along,they will both have some chat and in one occasion,he told her that he was willing to give his life to Christ.She prayed with him and later gave him a new testament bible.He will read it almost every now and then and everybody saw the changes in him.He will pray with fellow inmates and gradually became actively involved in the prison fellowship.

Sarah kept visiting the prison and at a point became very close with him,he stopped accepting gifts from his so called god fathers.As a matter of fact, he sent a message to those that always shower him with gift to desist from doing such anymore.His friends heard about his new life and became worried that he might open up one day so they planned to kill him in prison,they paid a prison staff and he poisoned his food,as God may have it,the morning when he was suppose to serve him with the poisoned food,the prison officer got involved in a car accident on his way to work.

Knocked down.

He was hospitalized for almost six months because of a fracture he sustained in the accident and within this period,his god fathers got more frustrated while Mike grew stronger in his new life.He wakes at approximately 4am every morning to worship, he was good with songs and sings to the happiness of fellow inmates.(They nick named him Mike Jackson)

In the morning

Early in the morning

In the morning i will rise

And praise my God

Good morning Jesus

Good morning Lord

I know you come from heaven above

The holy spirit is on you throne

Good morning Jesus, good morning Lord.

All efforts to harm him were all foiled one way or the other.With the help of Sarah and the ministry which she work for,he filed for an appeal and his case was redressed,from the record of his good behavior,his sentence was commuted to 10years which he needed to serve half.

He had already served more than five years because his new sentence counted from the day of his first sentence so as fate may have it,he was released from the prison.

With Sarah by his side all the time,he got deeply involved with the church,he was happy with his new life but with no immediate family,she became his only family,she allowed him into her own parents house and her father being a Pastor, gave him a room in their boys quarters unit.Things were going on well for him but something was missing.


He began tracing his mother and visited almost all the brothels in the city asking of someone like her,with old memories, he traced a brothel where the mother once lived,he later got an authentic information that the mother was leaving far away across the border so he traced her to the boarder side all to no avail then he gave up.He became fond of Sarah and she in turn liked him as a christian brother and a man he helped saved.

One day, he asked her out.

He told her that he don't know his birthday but wised to celebrate it that day.They went to the zoo then later to the sea front and while seated on one of the rocks,he told her how wonderful he has been feeling and how great a woman she was then told her that he loved her and wanted to ask her hand in marriage.

They both agreed to pray over it and one month later,they got married.

Sarah conceived and every body was happy,Mike was happy but he always tell her told her that his life would have been extremely joyful if his mother had been around and not knowing his father made him hungry to know the whereabouts of his mother.

"If she is dead fine but i just want to know what happened to her and i will be at peace".He says always.

Nine months afterward.

Sarah experienced labor and the midwife at the maternity has a striking resemblance with the woman Mike was looking for but this can't be his mother he thought.When Sarah was discharged, he told her about the resemblance between the midwife and his mother.Later that evening he wrote a song and sang it for Sarah;

I will enter his gate with thanksgiving in my heart

I will enter his court with praise

I will say this is the day that my God has made

I will rejoice for he has made me glad

He has made me glad

He has made me glad

I will rejoice for he has made me Glad


You are worthy

King of Kings

Lord of host you are worthy


King of kings,Lord of host i worship you...

Mother and child doing fine.

The day of circumcision

Sarah went back to the hospital for Circumcision and the same midwife circumcised their baby.Sarah preached to her and she accepted Christ and agreed to attend the church service.

She did and after the service had the chance to be introduced to Sarah's father and other family members,the name Mike rang bells in her ears,her late son bears same name but there was something strange,Sarah's husband has two moles on his left cheek just like her late son.

"What a co-incident" she thought.

But Blood they say is thicker than water...

O! goodness me! it is you, she shouted.

It is you my son,Michael, it is you

My son, Mike! it is you, o! it is you,it is you!

Everyone was surprised but at this point, she collapsed and was rushed to the hospital.

She was the woman Mike has been looking for

His mother and the one to complete his joyful new life

They were united and became a whole new family

He later traced his father.

That prison officer who got involved in a car accident

He apologized for the grievous crime he committed

The rape of an innocent thirteen years old girl

I have a message,I wake early in the morning and praise God.

People can change and God's power is the greatest.If i could come from a soul destroyer to a soul saver,what about you?

      Miracles are ever present in every single second of every persons life, they are brought to unbelievers, believers, inbetweeners, all are granted a miracle each time their heart beats. God built nothing into something one miracle at a time, creating a place where anything is possible, isn't it great?
