Marino Restrepo is often referred to as a “St Paul for These Times”.  His experience of “Illumination of Conscience” is absolutely incredible.  Originating from Columbia, he was once a famous musician and actor, enjoying a hedonistic lifestyle, but all this changes when he had the most wonderful encounter with God, during his horrific six months captivity, at the hands of Farc Rebels, holding him for ransom.  His experience left him a changed man and he now travels the world spreading God’s Message of Love and Mercy.  He will share his Testimony on Monday 20th August in St. Connell’s
