In honor of Samuel Johnson Lostchildren ministry programs

On October 31, 2014, our cousin Samuel told his dad and mom he was going to play basketball at North Community Center. After he was through playing ball, some gang members who thought he had said something drove alongside him and just shot him. They then left him for dead afterwards. His dad got a knock on the door: There is a person lying on a side street. It was his son, Samuel Johnson, 21 years old, that left-behind little boy. My cousin is sweet kid you want to meet.
