Arriving home from Bible study, Angela got the call every parent dreads. Her son, Christopher, was in jail, busted for selling drugs. Could this be the answer to her prayers? Christopher and his mother, Angela, talk about his time in prison, the shock of finding out he was HIV positive, and the way God slowly and patiently drew Christopher to the only One who could rescue him now, Jesus Christ. Hear what Christopher is doing now, and what his plans are for the future
While Christopher Yuan turned to his gay friends and, eventually, drugs for happiness, his mother, Angela, turned to God. Praying in earnest for her son’s salvation, Angela tells how her heart and attitude began to change toward Christopher. Standing on God’s promises, she and her husband prayed that God would do whatever it took to bring Christopher to Himself. Expelled from dental school and furious at his parents, Christopher tells how he became more involved with selling and using drugs, only to find himself in prison facing 10 years to life.
Sometimes getting from here to there isn’t a direct shot. Often the road God takes us on has unexpected twists and turns. Christopher Yuan, a professor at Moody Bible Institute, reflects back to the day when he finally “came out” to his parents and drove resolutely away, ready to fully embrace the gay lifestyle he knew back at the University of Kentucky where he was a dental student. His mother, Angela, tells how, in despair, she turned to a God she’d only heard about to find peace, joy, and hope for her family.
