Meet Angel Morell; Former Transsexual Now Servant of God


I wish to share with you the testimony of this young man who God rescued from homosexuality.  This story really touched my heart, because as a mother and a teacher of young children, I can hardly understand why young kids go through sexual abuse.  We need to pray for the children and the youth of this world.  The world needs to know that God STILL has the power to transform a man or a woman from homosexuality or any form of sexual deviation, transgender/transsexual, adultery, fornication, bestiality…ect.  A lot of people believe that this is not possible; but the Bible begs to differ.  God is still King; He can still perform miracles: He can still free us from sin.  If anybody says that a gay person was just born that way; they don’t know how powerful God can really be!!!

Luke 1:37 “For nothing is impossible with God.”

Morell Santiago, son of Mr. Angel Francisco Morell and Mrs. Carmen Santiago, brother of Elfi Martinez, Jessica Martinez, Felito Martinez and Kenia Martinez was raised by his grandfather Juan Santiago in his native country Puerto Rico.

Angel Morell Santiago’s life was from the beginning very dramatic, because when he was three years old, his mother abandoned him in a trash can and he never got associated with his parents again.

At five years old, Angel was sexually abused by his relatives. “I told my professor and school authorities what was happening to me, they took me out of the house and I was sent to a foster home,” narrated Angel to the reporter COCN, Rubi Adames.

After spending time through many foster homes, he escaped and found refuge in the streets, there he was forced to endure sexual relations with men so he could feed himself.

When he was 15 years old and alone in his life; he became “Melania Hilton of Paris”,  and with that female fairness he developed activities that only added suffering to his life.

With only 17 years old, he moved to Ecuador to have plastic surgeries where he invested approximately $170,000 in implants and surgeries.

He participated in five porn movies and in many occasions he was almost murdered, he was stabbed, he was constantly robbed and mugged and he was imprisoned in many occasions.  He was involved in drugs and witchcraft, all of that time seeking “to fill the void that he felt since he was a child” he narrates.

“I tried to take my own life many times, but I could never achieve it because the hand of God was behind me, and He had a special purpose for my life”, he tells.

Among the processes fulfilled for his sex change there were surgeries to his nose, breasts, liposuction, laser treatment, among others.  When he was about to have surgery on his genitals, the unexpected occurred: “I saw the face of God that stopped me”.

Angel says that his acquaintances accepted him because of the financial position he had obtained by means of prostitution.  He says that “for them, my multiple changes were something normal because they cared more about my money than my own suffering.”

Today, 25-year-old Angel Morell Santiago, is a man totally changed by God. “Only to Him I owe all of my transformation,” expressed Morell. In the year 2010, he accepted Jesus and four years with four months ago, his life has been different.

“One day while I was very sad inside my room, I felt that the world meant nothing to me anymore, nothing that I did replenished me…but I had a vision where I saw my ex-mate on the bed and beside him there was a demon that looked at me and I saw that blood was pouring from it’s hands.  When I rotated the mirror I saw myself transformed into a horrible monster with a crown of snakes on my head. When I tried to go to the street, very frightened and asking for help, I found a huge rat that wanted to bite me, suddenly I heard a voice that told me to look beside me and I saw a hammer, like the ones used in court and the voice told me to hit the rat with that hammer and the rat disappeared,” he adds. “Suddenly I looked upon the sky and I felt how a light came into my life and the pain disappeared for ever,” he narrates that the tears stopped coming out of his eyes and from that moment the change started to get noticed.

“A lot of people around me didn’t believe in my change, in fact, a lot of them still don’t believe it, however, only I know what God has done in my life and that is enough.”

Nowadays, Angel lives in San Juan, Puerto Rico and he’s committed to preach the gospel from his congregation, “I live by Faith Breaking Barriers Church” (Iglesia Rompiendo Barreras Vivo por Fe) where he testifies about his transformation.

He expresses feeling totally happy and renewed “by the new life that I’ve experienced in Jesus Christ,” he ends up saying: “My biggest eagerness is that millions of people, like me, come to know Christ and can be saved.”

  1. Thanks for one’s marvelous posting! I actually enjoyed reading
    it, you could be a great author. I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and will eventually come
    back very soon. I want to encourage you to ultimately continue your great job, have a nice morning!

  2. First of all what you are writing about is just that….an idea. God does not work based on our interpretations or ideas. He is the God of the Bible. Based on your response, you say that homosexuality comes from God. That’s not what the Bible teaches. Apostle Paul teaches that homosexuality comes from the devil. He is the one who rebelled against God. And homosexuality is rebellion against God’s creation.
    You are right in one thing: God does not make mistakes. He created man and woman. Homosexuality is a mistake created by the devil. Yes, we accept homosexuals but we have to teach them that they have to repent because if they don’t, they will go to hell. We don’t want them to lose their soul to the devil.
    Yes, God does have a plan for everyone. He wants us to go to Heaven to be with Him forever. The only way to go to Heaven is to repent from our sins accepting the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross and that His blood has he power to clean us from all sin (including homosexuality). Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. We can only go to Heaven through Him and His sacrifice. There is no other way. There is no fighting it. No matter what the new world order says…the Bible is our only resource to know who is God and how does He think. He is very clear about saying that homosexuals need to repent to go to Heaven.
    We all have free will, if the atheists don’t accept the truth that is in the Bible; well, they choose the path they want. God never changes. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. No matter what the world or the new generation says.
    Feel free to rip out and toss the pages of the Bible that condemn homosexuality. Just remember, that no matter what you do or believe; His Word will never change.


  3. or… here’s an idea. we accept everyone as they are, and understand that God loves everyone equally, even if they’re homosexual, because God made them that way. God does not make mistakes. I think God chose to put homosexuality and transgenderness in the world, because He saw that we were becoming overpopulated. God saw that we were becoming too many people for our planet, and rather than enacting another flood, He decided to save us by creating different children who couldn’t breed. I think that more and more people are turning to homosexuality and that it is because of God’s will. Because remember, above anything, God is love, and Jesus taught us to forgive people their sins and love them without judgement. God wanted to save his children, and realized that he had to do something.

    And above all, God doesn’t make mistakes, and God has a plan for everyone.
    So perhaps his plan for this young man was that he needed to struggle through those horrible things top find who he was and come to know God’s redemption and love. And maybe, God’s plan for the greater human population is to do something different to stabilize it, and instead of condemning people who are different than us, we should instead practice God’s love and accept them, and teach them that God will love them too . Maybe if we taught homosexuals and stuff that God created them, and God doesn’t make mistakes, and that God loves ALL of his children, then they would come to know God’s love and we wouldn’t have so many dirty athiests running around.


  4. The truth is that even though homosexuals and transexuals have different “labels” they travel in the same boat. It’s like fornication and adultery; even though fornication is having sex when you’re not legally married and adultery is having sex with someone who is not your spouse both sins imply two persons who are NOT married having sex. It’s just a technicism. Names or labels or classifications are not important….it’s all sexual immorality. God does not approve transsexual/transgender behavior because dressing like your opposite sex is implying that you don’t feel comfortable with your own sexual identity hence you are having a spiritual problem too. When we are comfortable with our own bodies and we are thankful of the way that God has made us; we are living in obedience and love.
    Anything that has to do with homosexuality, transgender/transsexual, bestiality, lesbianism, fornication, adultery…..these are all behaviors that reflect rebellion to God. The only one who rebels against God is Satan and his fallen angels.


  5. Yes, that’s the part of his testimony that touches a lot of people. It’s horrible the way that children can be abused. We have to pray for them constantly. Thanks for sharing your comment. GbY

  11. Reblogged this on Freedomborn … Aussie Christian Focus and commented:
    As I was preparing an Easter Post, I stopped for a break and read Lauriann’s story about a young man named Angel Morell , I’m still crying, it really touched my heart. What better way could there be to remember this Easter, Jesus’ great sacrifice for us, than to share the difference He makes in a messed up life, how can we doubt that He died to set us free from sins slavery, how Powerful is His never ending Love.

    Thank you Lauriann for the Light you share in the darkness….. Christian Love from both of us – Anne


  12. Wow I’m crying, how wonderful is God’s Love, how sad so many don’t know it is, Thank you so much Lauriann for sharing about His Love in such a powerful way, if you knew my life story you would understand why it has impacted me so much.

    One of my friends son is homosexual, I love him of course but my heart breaks for the evil he has chosen, I know God can rescue him as he rescued me when I chose to die because my life was in such a mess and I know 100% regardless of the life Storms I will face now and in the future, He will carry me through them and hold me close to His Heart reassuring and comforting me and this He does for all His redeemed Children that He has known from Eternity.

    Christian Love in our Unity in Christ Jesus -Anne
