This is the fifth podcast in a series in which I ask Fern to give his testimony. We are working on the manuscript of a book. One of the titles we have thrown around goes something like this…
Flight to Redemption: A Story of Cocaine, Prison, and a New Life Through Christ.
Fern discusses what it was like to live in a halfway house and look for his first job. He highlights events that he has come to refer to as God Moments. Several times when he shares with prospective employers that he has served twelve years in federal prison, he hears the response, “We believe in second chances.”

In the latest Torg Stories podcasts, we’ve been talking with Fernando Fernandez about his life. This includes time involved with running cocaine, stealing a US Marshal airplane, arrest in Cuba, and a prison conversation to Christianity.
In this episode, Fern finishes his 12-year sentence in Terre Haute and Peoria. He talks about his relationship with his son and what it was like to think about creating a new life following prison. After spending most of his life in Cuba and Miami, Fern is released into a Midwestern snowstorm and a halfway house in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
