For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Matthew 25;35-36
In October we had another really good month. I had training in two County jails and received my ID badge to be able to do ministry in these two jails. I had a total of eight jail meetings in October and had two saved in my visitation in the cell blocks. I worked three days in my local prison and had four saved there and some really good visits and services.
Were all moved in!! It was a rough few weeks during the move, three trips and a lot of miles. We have the discipleship Institute up and running and I have been working hard catching up all of the lessons. I mailed 993 lessons in July, and we enrolled 58 new students. I worked 101 hours and we had 11 inmates receive the Lord for the month.
On April 22, 1997, we started in full-time prison ministry, how the time has flown by and now it’s been 22 years and I still get excited when the officer waves to me and says “ are you ready to enter” I smile and say “I have been waiting for this all day”.
Praise the Lord, I was able to win my protest and I was allowed to receive a new medication. I started taking it the last week of February and it takes a few weeks to start working. I am trusting this one will get me back to my old self again. I am thankful for your prayers in this matter.
We have finished another year!! In April 2019 we will celebrate 22 years in the prison ministry. Praise the Lord. In the month of December, I preached in eight facilities and lead 26 inmates to the Lord. I also worked 118 hours in the Upper Midwest Bible Institute. We sent out 873 lessons and enrolled 38 new students. In 2018 we had many blessings and a few disappointments. I lost two full-time workers in 2018 but was able to move my schedule around to be able to do the jail and prison work.
