    WOW. The way God works, it is never a straight line. I need to trust and understand the process and be patient with the process. God I trust You for all you will do for me, i trust you with my life and even if nothing happen You are still God and i trust you and love you.

      The process is not punishment…Its processing a better you…You can help people get out of the situation you were processed through because it was an experience and has become an investment in you for the saving and guidance of others who would go through the same process and would need some inspiration on how to go through the process and be processed successfully…

      There we go.. smh.

      Oh please! Everything is “the way God” works.

      Why didn’t this “God” not have to put him through those grueling struggle of travelling overseas as a migrant, saving him from prison? Must he be in prison before he can be successful?

      Stop attributing the work of humans to a deity that is only notable for his noticeable absence?

      How come he hasn’t equally provided such “amazing story” for other illegal migrants that are languishing in jail?

      Theists insult humanity by denying humans the hardwork we go through to make a way in this life created by a so-called “all-loving, all-knowing and all-powerful God.” smh.

    This happened because he choose to be rehabilitated. He choose to make lemonades out of the lemons of life. There are people who would go to jail and come out worse. If he had this mindset before going to Switzerland or Jail, he’d be there.

    Some bad experiences open our eyes to opportunity true and this is inspirational yes but you don’t have to wait for bad experience to be motivated.

      @ ‘LL that’s so far from the moral of the story…he’s just saying make the best of your situation no matter how bad and you will thrive..

      Another moral of the story to me is that we should improve the quality of our prisons by improving the value of human capital
