Jose's Story

Friday night, 20 to 30 college guys, and two local strip clubs. Sounds like a familiar story,. But it's not. At least, not when those 20 to 30 college guys include senior José Silva and his friends from Franciscan University.

They call it the Red Light Ministry, and it's how José and company spend most Friday nights during the school year. While a group of female friends pray for them on campus, the guys head across the river to Weirton, West Virginia. There, two strip clubs stand just blocks apart. The guys split into two groups. Then, they pray.

"The whole thing takes about two to three hours," says José. "But it's so needed."
