What Happened When We Stopped in the Forest at 4:00am, Changed My Whole Life" Says Pastor.


Everything we do in life has repercussions that either improve or worsen our lives. Silas, a convicted car thief who is now a pastor, recounts his criminal history and how God transformed him.

Silas dream was to be a great person, according to a program called "Real Talk" on Switch Tv.

Silas was introduced to a business by a buddy after fourth grade, where they ran an electronics store.

They used to hold college students' bags for a time and then come back for them.

Silas was charged with stealing a laptop from a student's backpack.

He was detained and charged with theft.

While incarcerated, he made friends with Kelvin and Ken, two close friends.

They promised him that whenever they were released, they would assist him. They assisted him in getting out of jail after their release.

"They called me after 6 days and said Kelvin's uncle owns a vehicle yard in Mombasa and they were going to move two cars there.

Kelvin advised me that since Ken was not a driver, I should drive one of the cars "Silas remarked.

They went to Mombasa, but when they got to Voi, they took a detour through a dense forest to Tanzania.

"Suddenly, we came to a halt in the woods, where two men appeared and changed the car's number plate to Tanzania's," he explained.

Silas was introduced to crime on that day, and they began stealing cars and transporting them to Tanzania.

Silas was nowhere to be found after his pals were killed by cops.

He was eventually apprehended and transformed while incarcerated.

Silas now works as a pastor.
