Amazing Journeys

As a teenager in a California barrio, Angelica lived in fear of the deadly “Drive By.” She believes she has rescued her three Hispanic sons from gang life by moving them to a peaceful community in the hills of Oregon. But in Madras, the bigotry her boys experience propels them to reclaim their “gangsta” identities. Two sons consider themselves Pacoima gang members — but not John. Though his baggy jeans and earrings set him apart, God’s love, through a wonderful mentor, helps John find a new purpose: snatching youth from the Gangsta Diablo’s (Devil’s) house — in the heart of cowboy country.

Of the seven great stories in Amazing Journeys, Our Climb to the Top, I wrote this one called “Drive By.” This book available at
