The Bible tells a fascinating story of a rich young ruler who asked Jesus what he needed to do to have eternal life. Jesus told him to sell all of his possessions and give it to the poor and that he would have treasure in heaven. It was such a difficult challenge and the young man couldn't do it. (Mark 10, Matthew 19)
But thousands of years later, that challenge was given again to another young man named Charles Mulli.
Charles' story began in the abyss of pain and suffering brought about by inexorable poverty. At a very tender age, Charles' parents deserted him, leaving him in the care of his grandmother who was very old and poor. Within no time he became a village beggar for food and clothing often being pushed away.
One day in 1965, while doing odd jobs in the village, he came across a street preacher who spoke of salvation. That afternoon, Charles accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour.
His life started turning around slowly and he became a very successful businessman, making millions through his determination and business saavy.
One day in 1986, his truck got stolen by one of the street kids. Since then, everywhere he went, he started seeing himself on the faces of the children on the streets. It gave him no peace for the next 3 years and finally, he was convinced that God was calling him to these young people.
He said, "Lord, now I'm ready" , sold everything he had and he headed back to the streets to help the children.
That was how he started becoming a father to the fatherless…
His remarkable story and journey has been made into a documentary that will be featured in Hot Docs 2016 - North America's largest documentary festival, offers an outstanding selection of over 200 films from Canada and around the world to Toronto audiences of more than 200,000.
