Mauricio Rodriguez shares the dramatic story of how he nearly lost his life as a newborn—at the hand of the woman who gave birth to him. The Foursquare credentialed minister contrasts this experience with the love of the mother who raised him and engraved the Word of God on his heart.

The story of Mauricio Rodriguez overflows with redemption and hope, because he has learned firsthand the personal meaning of Ps. 27:10 and Jer. 29:11.

“Mine is a story of choices,” says the Foursquare credentialed minister—one woman’s choice to destroy a life, and another woman’s choice to redeem that life.

The woman who gave birth to Mauricio hid her pregnancy from family and friends, and when he was born, she left him to die at the bottom of an outhouse. 

Viewers will be deeply moved as they hear Mauricio describe his dramatic rescue and his even more miraculous upbringing with an adopted family who loved him. He introduces us to the mother who raised him to love and serve Jesus Christ.

This story covers a wealth of themes in just a few moments. This video offers an excellent illustration and attention-grabber for sermons, a moving discussion-starter for Bible studies, and will generate deep thought in students of the Word who are interested in social causes.
