God turned it all around in 2016. "It's like he showed me my whole life in a matter of like five seconds," Level said. "I just got on my knees. I started crying out to God. And when He spoke to me, I knew that if I didn't surrender, I felt like I was going to die."
Just over two years later, Level returned to the streets he once terrorized. "Now I'm giving them Jesus," he said. "I tell them 'repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost', Acts 2:38. That's what I preach."
"A lot of people come to Christ cause of my testimony and I'm just honored to be used by God," Level said of his ministry which focuses on reaching gangs and at-risk youth. "It's a privilege and honor to be used by him. He could have chosen anybody else," he said. "I could have been one of the people that died early. But I'm still here and I'm grateful."
