"In the past three years, the city of Chicago has suffered from street violence that has made national news too many times. Last year alone, Chicago had over five hundred murders. This year, we're already in a position to break that record. This poem "Chicago's Hope' was laid on Preston Perry's heart to write 4 years ago so he did. Now, with the consistent epidemic of murder, gang violence, and street violence still plaguing the city. Preston felt compelled to make a video and release it to the public. His prayer is that this video will help spark real change by inspiring believers around the world to pray and tell the world that hope is found in Jesus. We are called to give the Gospel. It is desperately needed. Especially in urban areas like Chicago where people are searching for a solution. Christ has called Christians to make disciples of all Nations.
