Luis Ortiz grew up in the projects of New York City. Even though he ran into drugs, gangs, and felt stuck in the streets, the love of God broke through. Through the godly influence and love of the church, Luis came to know Jesus as his Savior. As he found major success in competitive boxing, it was his goal to use the sport to spread the Gospel to those he fought in the ring. Today Luis is at the Word of Life Bible Institute getting a solid foundation of Biblical truth and seeking God’s will for his next steps.
