VFTB 3/3/24: From Gangster to the Gospel

FROM A BROKEN HOME in Guatemala to life as a gangster in Los Angeles, Mondo De La Vega is one of the last people you’d expect to find preaching the gospel. 

Mondo, Executive Producer of The Jim Bakker Show and host of The Mondo Show, joins us to discuss his new book My Crazy Life, and how his sister Laura, who, through the power of the Holy Spirit, resisted the lure of the false family structure offered by the gangs of L.A., was able to turn Mondo’s life around with three questions, and how meeting Jim Bakker not only gave Mondo a direction but brought Jim back to active ministry doing what he does best—finding ways to deliver the gospel through broadcast television.
