In Colombia during the 1980’s and 1990’s there wasn’t much hope. Drug cartels ran the country, and they ran it through intimidation and violence. During the 1990 Colombian presidential campaign, one man started to change this. He ran on a tough against drugs and crime platform, and he adopted the campaign slogan,

There will be a Future.

In Mexico, I met a man named Edgar. He had been a hitman in a local cartel. Edgar had reason to fear. Being a hitman is not job secure living. Realizing there was no future for him, Edgar became suicidal. He took one last job before he would end his life. That job happened to be killing a Christian. Edgar tracked him to a church, walked in, prepared to kill the man and heard this:

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service, even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent aggressor…  -1 Timothy 1:12-13

Edgar was a violent man. Having none, all he wanted a bit of hope. Paul, the author, was also a violent man, and he found hope. The door cracked open. Maybe, just maybe, there was hope…

Faintly, Edgar’s heart heard, “There will be a Future.”

This shirt’s purpose is to whisper to your heart and everyone who sees it, “There will be a Future”. Despite the politicians, the nightly news and your aunt Bertha…this is hope. There will be a Future.
