    Luis Rodriguez is one of those people that lived so passionately down the wrong path and with the wrong people. Now he is a living success story, transformed, and alive with the presence and <a href=“”http://www.electricalrepairmanoahu.com/“>http://www.electricalrepairmanoahu.com/”>light</a> of Christ. Let’s support Luis and help him to help others from going down their own wrong path. Luis has the power and presence to connect with people that want to live full and happy lives!

    Luis is such an inspiration to me and my little girls. We have watched a few of these videos including the interviews, and the man has just been through so much in his life and what he has to share is such a treat to be able to share with others. With my company, http://www.pestcontrolberkeley.com , I try to instill some of the same values that Mr. Rodriguez has been able to pass on along to myself and my family.
