Hi Everyone: It has been an exciting week, seeing all the posts from Kenya! God is surely at work through our team, in the prisons there! He is also still at work in the prisons & jails in your neighborhood.
While Miles, Mike, Bill and Brent are in Kenya, we still have teams visiting “the church behind bars” in Canada. This past week, right here in New Brunswick teams of volunteers visited seven different institutions, traveling approximately 1200km. The Lord has shown up there too!
I personally took part in a service where the presence of God was so tangible. As in every service we do, we presented the gospel message in a simple, easy to understand way. February, being love month, we talked about love. Many of the folks behind bars have a distorted view of love. They have never even experienced real love. They’ve experienced lust, with all it’s complications and consequences, but not love. We shared that God’s love is not a selfish love, but a sacrificial love, in that He gave His only son so that whoever believes in Him, will not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
The service started with a group of men who looked like they came just for something to do. But, God is so faithful, when we do what He has asked us to do, He shows up and makes His presence known! As the team shared, with the inmates, the message of how much God loves them, you could see a light come on in their eyes. By the end of the service, we all joined hands and prayed the sinners prayer together! What a blessing to see them receive Jesus into their hearts, only time will tell how their lives will be transformed!
This is such important work both in Kenya and in New Brunswick! Although we have volunteers doing the visits, it still costs to go. Please consider joining us. First in prayer! We can’t do any of this, without the faithful and fervent prayers of our prayer partners. Prayer is the spiritual fuel we run on.
Second, please consider donating to help with the costs of getting to the institutions. While prayer is wonderful, we need fuel ~ gasoline in our van to travel the approximately 5000 km we cover each month. Go to our website and click donate, then follow the prompts. Thanks so much for your interest. Take care and God Bless, Rosemary Blair
