Why did the brother not go Charles Bronson on the pimps?
One of the first things I wanted to know is where did this happen. Since I can’t figure it out then I am not reading the whole thing.
Where did this happen? Mexico? Uzbekistan?
I listened to him at TPUSA SAS2019 here in West Palm in December. Hes the real deal. He spoke powerfully, had young guys in the audience standing up to renounce porn, also not be ashamed if had suicidal thoughts, but to be real men of Christ. Told of the realities of connection to porn and trafficking. Said if you dont give it up then Ill be the one knocking down your door and pointing an AR-15.
