Update On The Prison Ministry

I would like to thank the Lord for the year He has given us this year. He moved us in a different direction in the ministry and has directed our steps all along the way. He has blessed us in ways we had not been blessed before. I praise Him for that!!

My husband has been in Florida preaching meetings in the men's state prison there on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and will be having his last service during this trip tonight. When I spoke to him last night he was so excited. Tuesday night he preached two services and one man said he got born-again. Woohoo!! Then last night he said they had over 100 inmates in the service and seven men came forward and said they got saved. What a blessing!!

Before he left for this trip the other day he got a phone call from a pastor that we had been to his church a few months back...he let my husband know that the church had voted to take us on for support. We rejoice at the opportunities God is giving us to share the burden God has given us for the prisoners of America with the churches we have been in so far. We will be in a meeting this Saturday at one of our supporting churches and are looking forward to seeing the people there again. My husband will be preaching in their Jubilee there. We currently have no more meetings scheduled this year. It is always difficult to get meetings during the Christmas season. We look forward to God giving us more opportunities in the coming year.

It truly is a joy to serve the Lord!! Please continue to pray for us as we do what God has called us to do. In fact...pray for all your missionaries that you know and/or support. These are tough times for everyone but even moreso for missionaries and their families.

To God be the glory great things He hath done!!
