Thank you so much for coming to visit my page on MyStory. I feel very honored. Here's a little bit of my story…


I had a difficult childhood because my parents divorced when I was a child. However, when I was ten years old, I had a really special experience. I found the peace that God gives! It was during my first communion at the Catholic Church. The priest asked me to confess my sins and I confessed everything I thought I had done wrong. A supernatural peace invaded my little child's heart. It was so special that I still remember it 40 years later. But, I quickly forgot that experience and I grew up as a rebellious teenager, trying to fill the emptiness inside me in all sorts of ways: Eastern philosophies, parties, …

When I was 16, I wanted to try drugs and I had a bad trip. When the firefighters were rescuing me, the man who held my hand told his colleague who was driving: "Hurry up, he won’t make it to the emergency room, we are losing him.” So I prayed and said to God: "Keep me alive and I will believe in you." After leaving the emergency room, I quickly forgot my prayer, but God had not forgotten.


Two years later, a family invited me to eat a good couscous. I like good food. They were my mother’s friends who, for their part, had experienced the presence and love of God. They invited me to their church, an evangelical church, and I agreed to follow them. That day it was as if God was waiting for me there. The pastor spoke of the love of God who sent his son Jesus to die on the cross to save us from our sins. He called out: Is there someone here today who wants to believe in God and give him his life? Let him raise his hand!

My heart was pounding! Because at that moment, God Himself through the Holy Spirit reminded me of my prayer in the ambulance two years before: "Keep me alive and I will believe in you." I heard an inner voice that told me: it is time to believe; this is the moment to keep your promise. This is the day! So I answered the call. I raised my hand and my life has never been the same.

The same peace of God that I experienced when I was 10 years old came back into my life. I was forgiven; I was freed. It really was like a new birth.


My friend, the peace that Jesus gives is amazing. Peace with God is the best thing that ever happened to me and if you have not experienced it, you can receive this peace in your life today.

My life has not been simple or easy. I've made mistakes. But Jesus said, "I give you my peace, I leave you my peace” and he also said: "And behold, I am with you always.” And indeed, he has been with me every day! He blessed me and gave me a wonderful wife and three great children, whom I love with all my heart! I believe in miracles because I'm really a miracle.

Becoming a child of God is as simple as a prayer. If you want to, you can also say this prayer:

My God, thank you for your love. Thank you for sending your son Jesus to save me. Forgive me for all my sins. I believe that Jesus died for me on the cross. I have faith in you!

Wow, if you have prayed this prayer, your life will begin to change and you will begin to experience His miracle in your life!
