“He can make your back feel better,” his mother said. And she was right. The “doctor” healed 9-year-old Pedro Ochoa’s back—the excruciating pain was gone! But this was no ordinary Honduran doctor. The man was a self-described “new age white magic” doctor—a Satan worshipper. Little did the young boy know that from that moment on, Satan had plans for Pedro’s life.

Pedro’s father was a businessman who traveled extensively. He divorced Pedro’s mother after she had an affair. Pedro, now 14, and his two younger sisters chose to stay with her. Two months later, Pedro’s mom walked out on the children, leaving Pedro in charge of his sisters and an infant cousin she had been caring for. “I felt so vulnerable,” Pedro recalls. “So incredibly hurt.”

Feeling powerless to change his situation and that he needed protection from the world crashing in around him, Pedro remembered the doctor who healed him through white magic.”When I told him about my situation, the doctor said he could help me,” Pedro recalls. “He told me that he could give me power and a god who is going to care about me and make me rich. He said that I would be able to grow a lot in this religion and become so powerful that I would be invincible if I would study the materials and consecrate myself to this god.” MORE
