On this new episode of the “Changed Lives Change Lives” series, guest Lou Perez shares his incredible testimony.
Growing up in the streets in a rough area of New York City without much supervision from his father and a mentally ill mom, Lou could have joined a gang or sought relief in drugs. He covered up his pain by being tough and rebellious but deep in his heart there had always been a longing for God.
After picking up a Bible once he stumbled upon a passage of Scripture that scared him into going to church.
Fast forward to 2021, and Lou Perez is a pastor of Destiny Church in Niagara Falls, NY, a host of the Soul2O podcast https://soul02.com/ and a Bible teacher who’s been used by God to change many peoples’ lives – on the mission field, in his church, and in his personal relationships.
In the interview Lou also shares how his transformation helped a “druggie” friend to become a pastor of a megachurch and how on a mission trip to China he was able to lighten the heart of a handicapped fatherless boy. We hope his story will inspire you.
