I find myself dreaming again. This time, it is about a man named Rutger.
Rutger is a huge guy, strong and on the rough side. Growing up in a broken family, drugs was easily available from the time that he was 15 years old. He was not much older when he began dealing. Making money was easy and quick; he knew how to move in that world. Woman were also part of the same game. Rutger did everything God forbid – these are Rutger’s very own words, and he speaks with a little smile.
Rutger got caught. He was arrested with a couple of Kg’s of drugs and he shortly found himself in jail. 4 walls was all he had. His fast pace life came to a halt and slowly he began to think he was crazy. Friends seem to lose interest in him. He felt left alone. A couple of times every week a couple of people – Christians –- came to visit the prison. They had time and attention. Harmen, one of the people that came to visit every week, made contact with Rutger and started some conversations.
