Timóteo's family found Jesus, and converted from the beliefs of their tribe in Colombia. That made them targets for persecution - and made Timóteo a target for guerrilla gangs.
You’re 11 years old, and you’re walking home from school. A man carrying a gun calls you over to him. What do you do?
This wasn’t a new experience for Timóteo in Colombia. Guerrilla fighters were everywhere in his community.
A guerrilla gang offered him money, power, and a better life.
Brave Timóteo said no - he knew Jesus was better and he was able to find safety and shelter at the Open Doors Children's Centre in Colombia.
