Stephen Lungu was only three years old when his mother abandoned him on the streets of Zimbabwe. By the age of eleven, Stephen had run away too, living a life on the streets, sleeping rough and scavenging for his food. As a teenager he was recruited into the Black Shadows gang, with dreams of revolution and terrorism. Stephen’s intention was even to fire bomb an evangelistic event being held in his town but instead of bringing death and destruction he stayed to listen. That was when his life changed from a life of darkness and fear to a life of being held in the arms of his heavenly father.
