The Big Way

Imagine watching NCIS Los Angeles and recognizing a person on the show. That happened to Fr. Mike.
In this interview with Augusto Valverde, Fr. Mike asks him how all this came to be.
Augusto ‘s mother is a woman of strong faith and so he grew up knowing about God. His father died when he was only three years old. But as he grew older, Augusto strayed. He tells of his wild life and how that was changed forever.

He speaks of two events that affected his life and drew him closer to God. Although he was initially afraid, he began doing prison ministry. It was then that calls for acting roles came, including the one for NCIS LA. Now Augusto is an actor in Hollywood. On the side, he went to Colombia to preach about sexual purity to 850 people.

He has also established BIG Foundation that involves Jews, Christians and Muslims. The profit that the foundation makes is used to help the poor and brings these people together to show their love of God and love of people.
