Prison Ministry

I lead a small group at NCCIW maximum security prison.  On the first day of class, she walked into my circle.  To be honest, I was a little intimidated by her looks.  She was rough looking and un-kept. The front pocket of her state-issued khaki shirt was bulging with stuff.   Signs of a rough life seemed to be part of her persona.  I knew from her registration card that she was in for life.  I watched her have an encounter with a prison official when she walked in the door and she was angry.   I mean, really angry.  No smile.  No excitement to be sitting in the circle.  Yet, I was very drawn to her.  Click Here to Read More...

 

Changed Through Service

GOD sweetly reminds me all the time that HIS blessings to me follow my obedience to HIM.  HE prompted me before the Bread for Life of America Mobile Market to make sure that little kids coming through a food line were not forgotten and made to feel special.  So when HE prompted me to stop and get candy for the children, I did.  I did so thinking this will be a blessing to the kids who come through the line with their parents to receive food.  Never did it occur to me that I would receive such a huge blessing from this small act of obedience.

Taking Action Through Jobs For Life

Jane's Story

My story of change began in the mid 1980’s as I began to notice the life of a dear friend and how different it was than mine.  Her inner beauty shone even stronger than her outer beauty, her children were well behaved, her husband loved her, her life seemed to be in order, and she just seemed to have something that I did not.  When I began to develop a relationship with her and inquired of her what is it that you have that I don’t, she began to tell me about Jesus.  Well I knew all about Jesus, having been raised in a Christian home and having gone to church every Sunday.  My father was an elder, and my mother was the choir director.  I knew all the stories about Jesus.  But she said, “Jane there is more to this story than just knowing about Jesus.  I want you to know Jesus personally, and I want you to accept Him as your Lord and Savior.  He will change your life”. Click Here to Read More...
