On Easter Sunday, April 16, 2006 at 3:02 p.m. (PST) on “Save the Lost At All Cost” a totally “Live” weekly radio ministry hosted by Nina S. Griffin of Lost Sheep Consulting featured on Las Vegas’ very on KKVV 1060 AM (Christian Talk Radio) and streamed “Live” on the internet @ Mr. Ramont Williams will be introducing his “From Crip To Christ” Ministries to the greater Las Vegas community and to the world wide internet. Ramont will be taking calls for the entire 58 minute broadcast. Callers in the greater Las Vegas area can call (702)650-5588 and if you’re calling outside the Las Vegas area please call (800) 366-8883 to speak with a man who knows the streets of Las Vegas like few who have ever lived to tell. Mr. Williams founded the GQs who later became known as the Donna Street Crips. “Donna Street” is called the “bloodiest street” in Clark County because more deaths by “gun shots” have occurred on that lone street than any other in the entire State of Nevada. Ramont was the first “Crip” ever to be incarcerated in the State. That happened on August 14, 1980 and Ramont was just 17 years old. He was sentenced to 61 years. More often than not with that much time “death” would have been an option for some but not for Ramont. He decided to give his life to “Christ” because if God could use a known “Christ Killer” the Apostle Paul, Mr. Williams knew God could use him too.

For over the past 10 years Ramont has been putting his knowledge about Las Vegas street gangs and incarceration to excellent use by visiting those same streets he use to claim ownership and allegiance by helping gang members become productive “ex” gang members. Ramont knows about “ground zero” and that’s where you’ll find him in the streets addressing the needs, hurts and interests of the those touched by gang violence. Mr. Williams knows that he past lifestyle has been for God’s glory to minister to those who society would rather just bury quietly and/or lock up indefinitely. Ramont readily shares his expertise with schools, churches, non-profit organizations targeting “at risk” children, community based businesses, state, city, county and other government agencies, parents, concerned citizens and gang members no matter what “set” they represent. Mr. Williams knows he’s blessed to be alive, married to his lovely wife, Christine and to kiss their four beautiful boys they have together daily.

The U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) reports that 1 out of every 143 Americans is now in jail, with another 700 new inmates joining them weekly. According to the BJS report "Prisoners in 2002," U.S. prisons, jails and juvenile facilities held 2,166,260 persons at the end of last year.
