The Bloods, The Crips -- A Christmas Story

(The following is a true story.  The names of the people involved and the places where they work are obscured for their protection.)

Realtown is one of the most violent communities in our city.  Gang violence is an every day occurrence.  More people are trying to leave this community than move there, but move there is exactly where John felt God leading him to do.  John left a six-figure-a-year secular job to move to Realtown, to plant his life in that community, and to start a church.  The people he wanted most to reach were the members of two rival gangs—the Bloods and the Crips!
