This is a powerful story of redemption. From having nothing to making “something out of nothing” David Nieto shares a piece of his testimony to show that with Jesus all things work out for the greater good, even when things seem to be falling apart…Here is his story. How was life for you growing up?
David: “I grew up in a loving but dysfunctional home. My father battled drug and alcohol addiction. Yet my life was good. My father became free from alcohol and drugs. My mother loved me deeply. She passed away from cancer as did my sister. I have a brother and a Dad, whom I both love deeply”.
FROM LOST TO FOUND
Did you grow up in the church?
David: “I did not. I attended catholic church perhaps once a year. I knew nothing really about the cross. Or for that matter the power of the word of God. I first learned about Jesus when I went to jail at 18. I had a serious drug addition. I invited Jesus into my life. I would like to tell you that I changed but I did not. I went on to use heroin for many years. Lived under bridges was homeless. Yet I knew that Jesus was Lord. Finally I was able to get clean. Jesus orchestrated everything. I went to a program, got a job and found a great local church. Today I now am over 12 years clean and sober. I am also Founder and President of a Christian based company called Living Spring Water LLC . I am living proof that the Word of God is true and that with Christ All things are possible”.
When you hear the word religion what comes to your mind?
David: “Jesus hated religion. Religion is man’s attempt to get to heaven on his own will. We need a relationship with the living God”.
Why do you think that the youth lose faith and don’t know God?
David: “I believe that this generation has a hunger for God. That is because of their intelligence level. They are hungry for the authentic. When they see fake they know it”.
What are other avenues that you think would benefit the youth?
David: “I believe that we need to evangelize to the youth. Get them saved. Explain that when you accept Jesus, God writes your name in the Book of Life. Yet the process of becoming what God has for your is a Journey, but one that is worth taking. I hold this generation in high regard. They know that there is something in the air. Programs are good, events, trips and music. Yet these things do not fully satisfy. I also believe that the youth need to get involved, but they have to be invited. This can only happen by identifying their talents”.
If you could have one power that Jesus had what would it be and why?
David: “I would want the wisdom of Jesus. Jesus knew when to be bold and he knew when to be silent”.
Describe Jesus in one word?
GOD ALWAYS COMES ON TIME…WHEN WE LEAST EXPECT IT
If there was one character in the bible that you could relate to, who would it be and why?
David: “I relate to King David. Not just because that is my name, but mostly because David was always misunderstood. He also had a deep need for God”.
What is your favorite verse in the Bible and why?
David: “This is a tuff one. There are so many that I hold dear. But I will go with this: “You drew near on the day I called on You, And said, “Do not fear!” (Lamentations 3:57 NKJV). When I started my company I was behind two months rent. Instead of paying one month, I took the money I had and started my business. I said to myself, “I don’t care if I am homeless, I will be a business owner homeless” I meant it. A few days later, I lost my job. Now I was three months behind on my rent! Had a lock out notice on my door. I was distraught. What was I going to do? There was no way that I could get out of this mess. I went to the pier and I fell on my knees and wept. I cried out to God. The Lord spoke to me and said “Do not Fear…You will lose not one thing” I then had peace. After a series of supernatural events I was able to pay everything. God came through. He always does.
