“Let God Arise and let His enemies be scattered”......Psalm 68:1
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expectedb end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13 KJV
We are often asked how is the jail ministry doing? Bibles are given out, requests for daily breads never cease, inmates look for volunteers each week and are agitated if for some reason chapel service is not called and last but not least souls are inviting Jesus Christ into their hearts. We have added new volunteers and welcome(JD, David and soon Dennis) to the volunteer list. Here is a quote from a former inmate and his experience in the county jail: "I've been thinking back on how much God has blessed me, and the incredible journey He has taken me on since He saved me back in 2009. I was sentenced to 15 years in prison on April 3, 2009. I was convicted of two counts of assault, and also three drug charges. I was an alcoholic, a drug addict, and was full of anger, hate, and had white supremacist beliefs. My life was going downward into a spiral that would've eventually lead to an early death. But while I was in jail, I read the New Testament all the way through, and I realized that I was a sinner, on the way to hell, and in need of a Savior. I came to God in tears, confessing all my sins, praying for Jesus to save me, and that He would have mercy on me. That very moment, I remember a weight of guilt taken off me, and the root of hatred had been plucked out of me. I truly can't hate anyone anymore. I was set free from drugs and alcohol and have been clean and sober since then. In December 2009, I was able to go to a Christian based program as an alternative to my prison sentence." Today this man is married, hard working and sharing the Love of Jesus Christ with everyone he meets. Thank you Jesus that you never give up on the lost and hurting. Love always, Tom & Beth
