Drug-Free Through a Mother’s Faith
with Victor Torres
Can a hopeless drug addict become drug-free through a mother’s faith? Victor Torres had a mother who relentlessly prayed for him until God set him free from addiction and violent gang life.
A Mother’s Faith Makes a Difference
With Mother’s Day this weekend, we want to encourage all mothers. No matter how serious the issues your children may be facing, your faith and prayers can make a huge difference in the lives of your struggling children.
Above all, trust in Jesus and take your worries to God.
Part One of Two
This is part one of a two-part interview we did in 2017 that was never published. In part two, Victor tells more about how he became drug-free through his mother’s faith.
Victor Torres was a gang warlord and heroin addict until God freed him. Later, Victor and his wife Carmen founded the New Life For Youth ministry. This ministry has helped tens of thousands of young men and women find freedom from drug addiction and gang life. As his mother predicted, Victor is also a pastor.
