From noodles to a new life

From noodles to a new life

The offer to share black bean noodles was about to change Johnny Chang’s life of anger, violence, drugs and prison forever.

His mother had become a Christian during his last stint in jail and asked him for a lift to church. But it was about to become much more.

“The pastor’s like, ‘Hey, Johnny, heard a lot about you. Glad that you’re home. Your mom has kind of talked about you a little bit, but, would you like to have some black bean noodles?’ And that’s actually my favourite dish,” Johnny (pictured above) told CBN.

“I just parked the car, went inside and ate the black bean noodles. It was really, really delicious. And he starts to kind of ask me some … some questions.”

Among the questions was a statement: Johnny needed Jesus as his personal saviour.

“And I’m like, ‘Wow!’ And he talked about emptiness, void, you know, this feeling that I felt,” said Johnny.

“It was as if he was dissecting my heart and pulling out pieces and showing me and giving me the antidote. It’s almost like a light bulb turned on.”
