Growing up poor but tough in Nicaragua, Omar Montenegro became fearless and foolhardy. Lured by his uncle’s stories of money and glamour, he crossed illegally into the United States where he discovered the lucrative world of drug dealing.
As a child, Omar had longed for love and a happy family of his own. In Los Angeles, he settled down with a woman he loved, hoping his dream was finally coming true. But his dream died when, in a murderous rage, he killed her and fled the country.
Now a fugitive, Omar hid on a lonely mountaintop in Nicaragua, vowing to overcome his violent temper. Even there he could not escape the misery and tyranny of sin. Pursued by a persistent God, Omar finally repented and found peace. But how could he find the courage to face his past and make restitution?
Chosen From Among the Worst is a true story of God’s marvelous grace, grace that transformed a sinner into a joyful child of God. “And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 1:14).
