A Lesson to Be Learned: Austin Ruse on His Late Friend ‘Zippy’

Crisis, Austin Ruse: Riding his bicycle on a country road in Northern Virginia, a man named Matt met Jesus unexpectedly this week.

Strangers found the 53-year-old man lying in a ditch with his toes still clipped into his pedals. Matt’s wife had gone up ahead, but when he did not catch up, she turned around and pedaled back to the horror of her life.

The police think he must have been hit by the mirror of a truck, but they are only guessing. They know it was a hit and run. And so, Matt met Jesus that day. Story is here.
