A Second Chance: Ross & Luther

Life after an 8-month coma

 As a 25 year old who grew up fatherless on the South Side of Chicago, Luther joined a gang at a young age. His family was convinced he was going to end up in prison, or even worse–dead.

“One night I got beat up real bad and ended up in the hospital,” Luther shares.

 Not long after Luther began following Jesus, he met Ross and was introduced to Streetlights.  “It was like a hunger for the Word of God became evident in his life, and now he’s listening to Streetlights all the time,”  says Ross.

 Luther found himself fully engaged in Streetlights, pausing and reflecting, writing notes, and discussing with Ross along the way, which has led to a deep Life-on-Life relationship.  “My role [with Luther] has been ‘together let’s get to know God,’”  Ross remarks.
