He was a smuggler, a drunk, a cheater, and was known for beating people.
He also treated his wife badly, had scant respect for God, and was only interested in making money. Even with his new-found wealth, mixing with the rich and famous, and possessing all the cars his heart desired, Polish-born Canadian resident Artur Pawlowski was not a happy man.
Fed up with life, he eventually converted to Christianity. But when his son was born without a lung and his heart in the wrong place, Pawlowski’s only hope was God. And it was God who not only miraculously healed his dying son, but allowed Pawlowski and doctors to watch as lungs formed in his young son’s body and as his heart was transported to its rightful place.
Today, Pawlowski’s story has touched millions around the world. His participation in yesterday’s March For Jesus, which was held in collaboration with Saving The Lost At Any Cost Ministries International, was just the keeping of a promise he made to God after God led him to forsake his lucrative job and dedicate his life to preaching the gospel, healing lives, taking the homeless off the streets, feeding and assisting them, and winning souls for the Kingdom of God.
