Larry Gross (60) walks the streets with a cross on his back to â€œbring Jesus to the peopleâ€. Larry used to be a heroin addict and was in and out of prison most of his life, until the moment he asked Jesus to save him. That happened when he met an older â€˜Crosswalkerâ€™ in Miami Beach, who gave Larry his old cross. Ever since heâ€™s been walking around, spreading the word of Jesus. Quite a remarkable redemption, considering Larry is Jewish.
Larry and his companion Bob (who was asked by his parents if Larry could take care of him for a while) walk through gang-related areas to tell young kids to change their lives before itâ€™s to late.
